Students make a move on latest Glasgow build
September 20 2017Elgin Place after Graham Construction handed over the keys to the Church Lukas designed build, a £20m development of 323 studio rooms and cluster flats above ground floor retail.
Managed by iQ Student Accommodation the purpose-built block boasts its own double-height performance, entertainment and sports hall, a café, social and amenity spaces. Capping the 14 floors of accommodation is a rooftop social space which offers a fully equipped barbecue and outdoor snug for residents to unwind from the bustle of the city below.
Graham managing director Gary Holmes commented: “The team have achieved a quality of finish on Elgin Place more akin to a fashionable hotel than a traditional student residences development.”
To distinguish the scheme from myriad other student builds the developers have specified an auditorium for films and presentations, private dining rooms, quiet study spaces, ‘iPad bouncepads and tables’ for games and research, a gym, gaming room and creative studio.
