Liverpool planners have given the green light for a 1,259-bed student living scheme.

The Crown Place student accommodation scheme will feature two large glass towers which are being designed to act like beacons across the city.

The University of Liverpool project - which has been designed by Lewis and Hickey Architects - will comprise three buildings of nine and ten storeys.

Tom Exell, project architect and associate at Lewis and Hickey’s  Manchester office, said: “The towers are intended to be beacons on the city landscape, standing proudly in the already iconic city skyline. The building is intended to respect and enhance the University campus and the wider cityscape, while also providing outstanding views out for students.”

Nick Riley, board director at Lewis and Hickey, added: “The residences have been designed to the highest quality, to meet the aspirations and requirements of the University, whilst also ensuring the development is achievable commercially.

“We have delivered over 11,000 student bedrooms within our business. We understand the importance of “student experience” to Universities and how the architecture can play an important part in ensuring the students have a living environment which balances a contemporary design with durability.”
