We were pleased to provide a £114 million development facility, supporting Union Property Development with the delivery of their 356 bed, Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) scheme in Paddington, Central London.

Union Property Development are an experienced family-owned property development, management and investment business, with a portfolio extending across the UK. With the support of Maslow’s financing package, the redevelopment will see an existing PBSA asset, undergo a significant refurbishment and reconfiguration program.

The development, which is located in the desirable area of Paddington, Central London, will place students within half an hour’s travel time of 10 university campuses.

The proposed redevelopment will not only offer modern and comfortable living spaces, but also provide a wide range of high-quality social and well-being amenities, including bookable kitchen / dining and games spaces, social and events space, residents lounge, individual and group study areas, laptop bar, gym, laundry and internal cycle storage facilities.

The internal fabric of the building will undergo extensive modernisation, introducing cutting-edge VRF heating and cooling, smart controls and building management systems, and new double-glazed windows and insulation to improve the building’s appearance and energy performance credentials.

The project is expected to address a significant shortfall in London’s outdated PBSA supply and provide relief for students looking for high-quality accommodation in the city.
