Watkin Jones cleared for second Chester scheme
Student housing specialist Watkin Jones has received planning consent for a £6.5m development in Chester.
Watkin Jones will build accommodation for 77 students on a site in Hunter Street, Chester, that is currently being used as a car park
The development is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2018.
This adds to the 330 student beds already being developed at Tower Wharf in Chester by Watkin Jones for delivery in August 2017. That scheme is worth £18m.
Chief executive Mark Watkin Jones said: “The group is delighted to have secured planning consent for this new development. This development when completed, will service students at the University of Chester and the University of Law and we are pleased to have added the Hunter Street site to our already impressive portfolio in Chester. The look and appearance of the development will be modern however we will ensure the selected materials will be reflective of the overall character and appearance of the area. The demand for student accommodation is growing and this latest scheme adds further validation to our business model.”
