Sector: Residential Completion date: August 2020

With a growing student population but a lack of city centre accommodation, the Huntingdon Street development provides high-quality student rooms just minutes’ walk from excellent amenities and Nottingham Trent University campus.

Designed with student wellbeing in mind, the mix of accommodation – cluster bed apartments, twin clusters, studios and townhouses – caters for students in their first move from home through to postgraduates. A combination of communal lounges and study areas, entertainment and fitness facilities and outdoor spaces encourage social interaction.

Before starting construction, Robertson carried out asbestos removal work and demolished the existing single-storey building. The new structure comprises five buildings ranging from two to eight storeys which are grouped around a landscaped courtyard designed to support local biodiversity. To encourage cycling, there are multiple parking spaces for bikes in what is a car-free development.

While the residences provide modern facilities, the mews style structure and red brick facades evoke Nottingham’s textile manufacturing past.
