London Road, Brighton
CST 2 acquired this site following the grant of a detailed planning permission to provide 232 beds above c.1,700 sq.m of ground-floor retail accommodation.
Construction activity spanned the Covid epidemic and was for the academic year 2021/22. Part of the ground floor retail accommodation was pre-let to the Co-op with the remainder let to Nandos, Starbucks and Heavenly Desserts following completion.
Curlew Opportunities managed the design process and provided development management services to CST 2 throughout the balance of the construction and letting process.
Poland House, Stratford, London
Acquired in 2019, Curlew acquired this site and successfully achieved planning permission for a 284 cluster bed scheme with a high level of amenity and 160 sqm of gifted community space at the ground floor.
The site is close to Westfield Shopping Centre and the Olympic Park, with excellent railway connectivity and is targeting a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating.
Curlew’s development arm, Curlew Opportunities, is responsible for the delivery of this c£60million scheme and demolition has already begun.
22a Potterrow is a boutique student accommodation building consisting of 52 self contained studio apartments designed by Yeoman McAllister Architects, and developed by Curlew Opportunities.
Opening in 2018 this scheme added to the neighbouring 151 bed PBSA asset already held within the CST1 portfolio.
The Lantern, Liverpool
Curlew Opportunities provided development services support to assist in the management of the non-core elements of this large complicated city centre regeneration scheme adjoining Lime Street Station in Liverpool.
The scheme comprises 412 PBSA beds and a105 bed Premier Inn Hotel over some 2,750m of retail accommodation of which c. 90% was pre let to Lidl and Geene King. The scheme was completed successfully in 2018.
A planning application has been submitted to redevelop the derelict Gamecock Inn pub with a new-build Student Residence comprising of 261 bedrooms in a variety of bedroom types meeting a range of affordability criteria.
The site is located on the corner of Booth Street West and Boundary Lane, close to the main campuses of both Manchester University and Manchester Metropolitan University.
There is a widely evidenced need for additional PBSA in Manchester to address quantitative and qualitative deficiencies in existing provision and in response to evidence of the adverse impacts that an under supply of PBSA is having on the wider housing market in the city.
Harlequin Centre, Exeter
Curlew’s plans for a new development of co-living homes and an hotel have been approved by Exeter City Council.
The scheme will replace the outdated Harlequins Shopping Centre in the heart of the city with two new blocks comprising 251 co-living bedrooms and a 116-room hotel. The plans also include a ‘pocket park’ and significant improvements to the urban environment for pedestrians and cyclists.
Packsaddle Hill in Falmouth was developed by Curlew in 2017.
It provides 124 beds in three buildings within 100 metres of the Exeter University campus at Falmouth and has been entirely let on a lease to the University of Exeter since completion.
