Contractors are being lined-up for a 403-bed scheme at Holdenhurst Road Bournemouth and another 550 bedder in the town on Landsdowne Road.
Both schemes are due for delivery in summer 2019.
GSA is currently on site at four schemes:
- Bentley House, Birmingham, is being delivered by Pochin Construction, and will provide 534 student beds from July 2017
- Catherine House, Portsmouth, is being delivered by McAleer & Rushe, and will provide 1,000 student beds from August 2017
- Beckley Point, Plymouth, is being delivered by Kier, and will provide 507 student beds from August 2017.
- 217 Newmarket Road, Cambridge, is on site with Watkins Jones and is planned for delivery in summer 2018, providing 219 student beds
Tim Mitchell, GSA’s CEO for EMEA, said: “The UK maintains its reputation for having some of the best academic institutions globally.
“There will continue to be high demand for well-maintained purpose-built student accommodation from both home and international students, managed in conjunction with our emerging global portfolio.
“With GSA’s drive to develop 20,000 beds in targeted UK cities, we’re confident we’ll help satisfy a significant proportion of that demand over the next three years, working with some great contractor partners.”
Upon completion all sites will operate under GSA’s brands The Student Housing Company or Uninest.
