Development of purpose-built student accommodation in a highly sustainable but sensitive location

Our role

  • Our Planning and Heritage teams advised in respect of a part-new build part-conversion PBSA scheme in the Moss Side area of Manchester south of Whitworth Park. 
  • A planning application was made to the city council in late 2022 comprising the conversion of a grade II listed Victorian-era villa and the construction of an interconnecting block of 9-storeys in height. The building contains 261 bedrooms of varying format and size. 
  • The application is submitted within the context of a significant shortfall in supply of PBSA in Manchester with the University of Manchester lending their support to the scheme.


  • The application was approved by Manchester Planning Committee (subject to S106) in summer 2023.
  • The development will provide a substantial number of high-quality bedspaces, including 20% affordable in a highly accessible location close to the city’s universities, whilst repurposing a prominent grade II listed building.
