Collegelands student accommodation launched

Vastint Hospitality have launched a £19m student accommodation block at Glasgow’s Collegelands development following its handover by main contractor Robertson.

Hannah House delivers a total of 458 student flats in an S-shaped building enclosing a private south facing courtyard and a semi-public north facing courtyard, including a combination of standard, cluster and accessible rooms.

David Cairns, managing director, Robertson Central East, said: “This is Vastint Hospitality’s first student accommodation development in Europe and we have worked collaboratively through the design and construction stages to create a building and environment which will enhance student living.”

Robertson first commenced work on the design and build project back in October 2016 and is currently applying the finishing touches to a neighbouring Moxy hotel.

Remember the song" little boxes, little boxes and they're all made out of ticky tacky, little boxes little boxes and they all look just the same."
Design now only works in right angles and flat roofs so it seems.

Why have the latest additions at collegelands regressed from brick to this tacky composite junk?

it starts with 'value' and ends in 'engineering'

At least it is better that the Moxy Hotel next door. Maybe all this filler just of Duke Street will help bring forward an improvement plan for the high Street curve.

No matter the quality and history of the Cathedral the walk up high Street shames the city. We have got the gable end masterpieces but the shop units are shocking.

Some love and some cash would self finance in 5 years. Low hanging fruit to anyone in the City Chambers who can be bothered.
