Co-Living Comes To Central Birmingham
A site at Hospital Street in the city's Gun Quarter is being mooted by local developer Volume.Property.
Volume-Property founder Anthony Laville is preparing a planning application for a 180-bed scheme, Birmingham Live reports.
The £16M scheme will include a mix of shared and self-contained apartments. The planning application will be submitted in the spring.
In London, The Collective’s 546-bedroom Old Oak scheme is said to be among the largest co-living schemes in the world. Unlike the Echo Street scheme it involved the conversion of existing premises. Investors tip co-living as a high growth area in the capital.
In Manchester IQ Student Accommodation has planning permission for the first purpose-built co-living development in the UK. The project will include three towers of up to 25 storeys and 403 co-living units. Work on site is to begin in May.
