Developers strike Stirling student accommodation deal
Maven and IP Investment Management have struck a deal to build Stirling’s first purpose-built student accommodation block to meet growing tenant demand.

Susan Stephens Architects are behind designs for the 207-bed property overlooking the River Forth spread across two separate buildings and including a cinema, gym, games room, laundry and study areas.

In a design statement the architect wrote: “The ‘L’ shaped building creates a dual relationship between the riverfront and the existing residences along Forth Crescent. The design’s contemporary approach clearly identifies the intervention whilst mirroring traits of Stirling’s prominent parallel gables.

“The building follows the site’s topography with two storeys cut into the slope facing towards the river. The accommodation on these floors follow the terraced landscaping, allowing for views towards the river and beyond.”

Construction is expected to begin this spring to complete in time for the 2019/20 academic year.

Actually just reached the point where I don't care anymore, and just laugh rather than get angry at these proposals.

Yet another shining example of That'll-Daeism.

So this is on a steeply sloping site... right next to the river... yet we just get a big chunk of Westerhailian-style building on a flat site set in front of a blue sky. Meh.
