On site in Selly Oak

December 6, 2017

We are delighted to have started on-site on the Selly Oak Student Accommodation project for The Harvest Partnership – an innovative joint venture between Land Securities and Sainsbury’s.

The design of the purpose built, 418 room student accommodation building seeks to create a building with an elegant and refined architecture that will appeal to students, and post-graduates. The Worcester and Birmingham Canal is a key feature of the proposals, with designs for a new public square and improved access for pedestrians and cyclists provided within the site, which also allow direct links to the nearby Selly Oak Centre and Selly Oak Park.

The project will also provide a valuable economic boost for the area with the development offering a wide range of employment opportunities.  Alongside the new student accommodation, the development will provide a high-quality retail and leisure offer, with the delivery of a new Sainsbury’s store amongst a wide range of other quality shops and places to eat and drink.

The project is due to complete in time for the 2019 academic year.
