STATUS: Complete

A mixed-use development of student accommodation and leisure facilities on the site of the former Marco’s Grove Street, Edinburgh for a leading student operator.

Arranged around three separate blocks, the student element provides 321 beds, comprising 209 studio apartments and 112 cluster beds arranged into a mix of one, three, four, five and six beds, each with a communal lounge/kitchen. All bedrooms were designed as pre-fabricated ensuites. Communal facilities include social lounges on each floor and a music, TV and laundry room. Below street level, a 7,500 ft2 leisure facility has been formed, which links independently to a new ground floor leisure reception and café bistro.

The student accommodation is used as an apart-hotel during non-term time. Construction methods for the development included single storey steel transfer structure to ground floor podium level, and thereafter traditional masonry built, with finishes of stone, brick and zinc.
