Study Inn Group, a luxury hotel-style student accommodation owner, developer, and operator, is converting Reynard House, a former office block in Leicester, into a 267-bed purpose-built student accommodation centre.
The £30million redevelopment will increase the overall square footage of the existing Reynard House by 50%, with additional new build space totalling 73,550 square feet. The seven-storey scheme will provide a mixture of studios and en suite serviced apartment rooms, three-minutes’ walk from the De Montford University’s main campus. Construction is under way, with opening scheduled for September next year.
Facilities will include 24/7 onsite management, room cleaning and linen services, wellness spa, sauna, steam room, hot beds, gym, yoga studio, games room, lounge, and a big screen cinema room.
Jack Jefferson, acquisitions director at Study Inn, said: “We are very pleased to add another fantastic city to our fast-growing portfolio. As both a developer and an operator, it is testament to our confidence in the continuing purpose-built student accommodation letting ability in Leicester.”
Study Inn is currently building properties in Exeter, opening next month, and in Leeds, opening in September next year, to add to its operating properties in Bristol, Loughborough, and Nottingham.
