This is the former site of RSM Tenon by the look of it. I imagine eventually the whole area will be a student village, but at the moment it's s bit of a rough area to want to live, it's half regenerated, half derelict.

I think the poor quality of the renders is letting this project down a little.

I agree, the materials are warm colour brick so should look quite nice

As long as it stays brick it should look quite tidy.

Looks great, similar to I-Land which I think is one of the best bits of new build in the city with regards to accommodation.

looks like it will have quite an impact on approaching the city centre along the A38(M)... again, as with others, if the materials are right, then should be a good scheme!

This area really is becoming a little student halls village.....what amazes me is the area can't sustain a single, shop, restaurant or pub. The students must bemoan having to cross the A38 to get to Tesco Express last thing at night to get a pint of milk, amazed too the old pub could not make enough trade where it is Maybe today's breed of students are more teetotal.
