Project Overview

Upperton Road Student Accommodation is a purpose-built student residence located in Leicester and is our fourth new build, luxury high-end student accommodation scheme based in the city for the same client. The scheme, consisting of 46 self-contained studio apartments for student living, includes a gym, cinema room, and private study areas as well as indoor and outdoor communal areas. The project was for the refurbishment of an existing block and the design and construction of two additional 3-4 storey blocks housing 46 studios, self-contained flats, and ancillary accommodation. The development is 1900m2 and Block A and in parts to Block C Roof there is a Green Roof. The scheme is located within cartilage of a Grade 2 listed building and the design was developed with this in mind. Utilising MAS skills and expertise in old and new approach, a well-balanced contextual design approach was applied. Upperton Road will provide a new level of much-needed contemporary student accommodation within Leicester city centre providing all the necessary facilities on site, creating a luxurious environment for students to thrive in.
