The £13m scheme by developer contractor Marcus Worthington will have 275 student bedrooms and studios
Stride Treglown Architects has secured planning approval for a £13m student residence scheme on behalf of developer contractors Marcus Worthington. The 13-storey tower in Corporation Street will dominate the western approaches to Preston City centre.
The glass-clad tower will house 275 student bedrooms and studios. Its base is a double-height podium containing a bar/restaurant, student social spaces and a replacement chapel for the existing City Mission.
Work is expected to start before the end of the year with completion due in summer 2012.
