A 600 bed student accommodation development which will make a significant contribution to realising Manchester City Council’s ambitious plans for the Oxford Road Corridor as a higher education and knowledge hub. This will be the first purpose built student accommodation development to achieve planning permission in Manchester for over seven years and will help to revitalise New Wakefield Street as a key node within the corridor through opening up the existing ground floor to commercial uses.
