Student accommodation specialist Unite Students is planning a £40m development in Birmingham

Unite Students has exchanged contracts to acquire a new development site in central Birmingham, subject to planning permission. It expects to build rooms for approximately 600 students, with completion envisaged in 2019.

The site of the £40m development (including land cost) is next door to an existing Unite building. It will increase the number of Unite beds in Birmingham to around 3,300 across five properties.
