Volume.Property submits planning for 220 student beds in Birmingham

Birmingham-based investor and developer Volume.Property has submitted a planning application for the third and final phase of its student development in Birmingham city centre.

The planning application is for the third phase of the developer’s Volume Works project, which is expected to add 220 beds to the existing 156 across the wider scheme.

After completing phase one in 2021 and achieving planning for phase two — which is on target for completion this summer — the developer teamed up with Hortus Investments to deliver the wider Volume Works project.

The studios in phase three will feature ample storage space, high-speed internet and en-suite bathrooms.

The communal areas will offer social spaces, study areas, a gym and outdoor space.

Provision has been made for 48 cycle parking spaces, promoting sustainable transport to and from the development

Anthony Laville, CEO at Volume.Property, said: “The student accommodation sector is changing rapidly, and today's students expect a better level of product and service than ever before.

“At Volume.Property, we've been pioneering new ways of enhancing the student experience, and that's been evident in our results."

The planning application is currently under review by the local council and, if approved, construction is expected to begin later this year.

The development is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the 2025/26 academic year.
