Space Developments will deliver a new student living development close to Worcester University’s main St John’s campus and its Arena site for the September 2022 Academic Year.

 

The development is part of Space’s mission to create vibrant communities through collective and connected living. This sustainable residential student development involves the regeneration of one of Worcester City’s largest and most historic listed buildings. 

The team have been working with Worcester Council’s Conservation and Planning team to sensitively convert the existing building and complete the design of the new build block that will be next to it. The scheme will contribute strongly to the local area and breathe new life into and regenerate the site.

The student accommodation buildings will provide a mixture of cluster flats and self-contained studios.

 

The main building will provide accommodation for 87 students and will also house offices, student communal areas and services. The Cottage to the rear of the site will provide a four-students cluster, while the new 5 storey building in the south west corner of the site, will provide accommodation for 72 students in twelve cluster flats.

 

All three buildings benefit from security and surround and open onto a large communal courtyard that in turn accesses the communal lounges and central services.

 

Space Developments have appointed J Tomlinson Limited (“JTL”) as the main contractor for the build. 

 

JTL are an experienced Midlands based company, that has a strong heritage and high standards, built on vast multi-sector experience of delivering building solutions. They have significant experience in student accommodation, which has made them the partner of choice for this project.

Work on Albert Halls has commenced on site, with main contract works expecting to start in early 2021, with a target date for completion of June 2022.  

Albert Residences will be available to students for the start of the 2022/2023 academic year.

Tim Edghill, Principal at Space Developments said ‘We are delighted to be renewing this magnificent historic building and delivering an exciting living space that provides quality, security and a communal home for Worcester’s Student Population and in doing so adding to the local community. 

The refurbished buildings and new accommodation block aim to create an inclusive space where the residents feel part of a community where they belong, create lasting friendships and can thrive’.
