In Cardiff, Student Accommodation

DPP are delighted to have assisted Cassidy Group with submission for a new 419-bedroom purpose-built student accommodation building in the heart of Beeston which will breathe new life into a derelict site and bring increased footfall and economic benefit to local retailers.

DPP coordinated and submitted a planning application working closely with Cassidy Group, Maber Architects, and the appointed design team. The proposed scheme will provide 318 classic studios of 16 sqm, 76 classic plus studios of 16 to 20 sqm, and 25 premium/ accessible studios of between 26 and 30 sqm. It will also include commercial units at ground floor level to complement the adjacent Arc Cinema complex as well as landscaping and a green roof to improve biodiversity.

This is the fourth student accommodation scheme DPP have submitted in the Nottinghamshire area in the past three years, the three previous schemes all being approved with one due to open this September.

Sam Rose, of Cassidy Group, said:

“We are excited to bring this student scheme to Beeston. Not only will students love living there – so close to the amenities they enjoy, as well as their university campus – but we are bringing a derelict site back to life. By creating sensitively designed student schemes with fabulous interiors like the one we are proposing for Beeston, we know we can not only create something that benefits the local area – but also an additional student environment where people really want to live.”

Tom Molyneux-Wright, of DPP, said:

We are delighted to be assisting Cassidy Group in bringing forward plans to redevelopment this derelict site. Following the opening of the Arc Cinema complex next door to the site, in 2020, this development will complete the transformation of this central part of town. We have an excellent relationship with Cassidy Group and the local planning authorities in Nottinghamshire and this represents the fifth major residential/ student we have worked together on in the local area in the last three years.
