Scheme includes 692 beds on former Royal Mail sorting office

Birmingham-based Godwin Developments has submitted plans for a near 700-unit student housing scheme in Nottingham including towers of up to 15 storeys.

The 692-bed Bendigo Building is planned for the site of the city’s former Royal Mail sorting office, which will be demolished to make way for the project.

Godwin said the Bath Street development will comprise a range of buildings of between 12 and 15 storeys, including studio apartments and four- to six-bed cluster rooms, alongside a residents lounge, gym study and games area.

The buildings, with basement parking and cycle storage, will also include ground floor commercial unit.

The development has been designed by architect RG&P, with input from engineer HSP Consulting and planning consultant PD&G

Matt Chandler, development director at Godwin Developments, said: “We are delighted to have reached this important milestone in our proposals for the re-development of this significant site in Nottingham.

The planning application submission comes as Godwin is in the course of progressing a range of developments across the Midlands and North, including the 23-storey Meridian build-to-rent tower in Sheffield, and further build to rent schemes in Ely and Doncaster.
