Flagship Student Accommodation
Completed in late 2015, 60 Commercial Road represents a flagship student accommodation development for Wates Construction, further building on firm reputations for providing inner-city high-rise schemes, and catering for the student market.
Delivered for Pure Student Living in time for the new academic year, the completed 19-storey building created 417 en-suite bedrooms including kitchenettes with access to common areas and a gym on the first floor. The development, located next to London Metropolitan University, also includes prime-retail space on the ground floor and gives the whole building a 12,000 sq. m footprint. Also including green roof coverings and a sky lounge social space this accommodation really pushes the standards of ‘Student Digs’.
- 90% Supply Chain SME's
Innovative solutions were used throughout the build, with value engineering exercises employed saving the client upwards of £1m.
Having achieved a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating
This puts Commercial Road in the top 10% of new UK non-domestic buildings, recognising the use of industry best practice.
With its eye-catching geometric wave façade, combining concrete pre-cast modules with terracotta cladding, interspersed with full-height glazed panels, number 60 is the most visually striking development on Commercial Road.
