An industrial area of Birmingham near the city centre will be the latest to house student flats as yet more proposals come forward to serve the growing university population.
These latest plans involve the construction of a block on land between Windsor Street and Kellett Road, east of Aston University's campus in Nechells.
The building would range from two to four storeys and provide 72 bedrooms comprising 35 studios and 37 bedrooms in eight shared flats, 34 bikes spaces but none for cars alongside a common room, launderette, cycle store and management office.
Manchester-based O'Connell East Architects has lodged these plans on behalf of a Birmingham-based company called Millenium Holdings whose directors have previous experience in the hospitality and care home industries.
The vacant site covers a third of an acre and was previously home to a two-storey building containing small retail units which was demolished between 2008 and 2009 since when the plot has remained undeveloped and used for parking.
Although the complex will be independently owned and managed, the rooms are likely to attract students attending Aston University and Birmingham City University's campus around Curzon Street.
It is due to be open in time for the 2017/18 academic year and will be managed and operated by Amare.
A planning statement by Solihull-based consultancy Tyler Parkes said: "This part of Birmingham is likely to be the subject of significant regeneration with many sites coming forward for redevelopment as part of the regeneration of Eastside and Curzon Street in proximity to the HS2 station.
"The building has been designed to a high standard drawing on a contemporary design that can relate to the surrounding light industrial buildings while the scale and proportions of the building also relate to the surrounding residential environment.
"The communal accommodation provides for first-year students looking to mix and socialise with fellow undergraduates with the studio accommodation targeting those students seeking a more independent lifestyle."
During the early 20th century, this area of the city consisted of mainly densely knit terraced housing but it sustained heavy damage during the Second World War meaning it was largely rebuilt in the 1950s and 60s.
Plans for the accommodation, which would incorporate Beechenhurst House, the former home of renowned social reformer and justice of the peace John Sutton Nettlefold, were lodged earlier this year.
They were also designed by O'Connell East Architects with consultancy from Tyler Parkes.
