Glasgow student accommodation development reaches new milestone

The new PBSA development on Bath Street, Glasgow, will deliver 551 beds for the city

The third core of the 551-bed student accommodation complex at 225 Bath Street, Glasgow, has been completed by GRAHAM and its frame partner, Hampsey Ltd, in less than eight weeks.

With each core standing at 36m in Glasgow’s skyline, the project team is celebrating the impressive milestone as they target practical completion in 2025.

The development replaces a vacant 1970’s office block that was demolished earlier this year and will offer a contemporary design with glazed frontage, complementing the existing streetscape.

A welcome addition to Glasgow’s PBSA offering, students will also benefit from communal amenities including a gym, a gaming arcade, dining spaces and social areas set across 16,390 sq. ft. The new complex sits adjacent to an existing iQ Student Accommodation block – Elgin Place – which includes 323 beds, also delivered by GRAHAM.

Gary Holmes, regional managing director at GRAHAM Building North, said: “We’re really pleased with the significant progress being made at Bath Street since works commenced in July.

“The critical demand for new student homes across the city is an ongoing conversation and the new offering at 225 Bath Street will help to bridge the gap between supply and demand for students in Glasgow.”

The wider project team also includes architect Cooper Cromar, engineering consultant Woolgar Hunter, project manager AtkinsRéalis and cost consultants Cumming Group.
