A social area will be created on the ground floor for students to socialise and study in, as well as media rooms, private study areas, a gym, coffee shop and private dining facilities.

Michele Steel, Vita Group’s strategic planning director, said: “This second Leeds site is in a fantastic location and will offer students in the city an unparalleled living experience whilst they study. With our first Vita Student residence on track to open next September, we’re looking forward to getting on site and finally bringing this much talked about development back to life.”

The architects’ practice working on this project is Fuse Studios. The planning advisor is GVA HOW Planning.

This will be Vita Student’s second residence in the city, with its first opening in September 2019 at St Alban’s Place.
