Plans for a major new development of student accommodation containing more than a thousand bedrooms have been unveiled.
The project would see a car park in Birmingham's Gun Quarter regenerated to contain three blocks of accommodation reaching nine, 13 and 24 storeys respectively in a C-shaped complex.
The application site is currently a 120-space car off New Town Row, next to the Lancaster Circus Queensway island, and the final development would contain 1,023 bedrooms divided over 103 studios and 158 shared flats of between five and seven bedrooms.
Common areas would include a cinema room, reception, offices, lobby and a kitchen and the upper ground level will have a landscaped courtyard.
There would be no parking for cars but space 256 bikes and the development is expected to create the equivalent of 27 full-time jobs.
New images have also been released by joint applicants Lench's Trust and ES Lancaster Birmingham (above and below) which show how the project could look.
A previous application lodged in 2008 would have seen 734 student bedrooms developed over 20 storeys on the car park site which is operated by Gallan.
Birmingham's historic Gun Quarter district has seen a surge in student accommodation developments in recent years with Penworks House, Studios 51 and Bentley House all opening there while Unite Students is on site to build 586 bedrooms on land off Staniforth Street, due for completion next summer.
