The 604-bed scheme at Carlton Hill, Lofthouse Terrace, Woodhouse, will replace a four-floor, 239-bed development which was developed on the same site by Pickard Properties in 2001.
The client’s project team includes Halliday Clark Architects with Fox Lloyd Jones as quantity surveyor/project manager and engineers Sweco and Hoare Lea.
Construction is expected to start on site in autumn 2020 following the appointment of a contractor. The scheme is due for completion in the summer of 2023.
