Manchester high-end student accommodation added to Empiric portfolio
May 31, 2017
Stansons Group have recently been awarded the window shading package for Victoria point student accommodation in Manchester. Victoria Point is a 561-bed scheme which Empiric have bought for £29.5 million from MCR Property Group.
Victoria Point is located in the Victoria Park area of Manchester, a popular student area convenient for The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Royal Northern College of Music.
"With its large student population - the third largest in the UK with 61,990 full-time students in 2014/15 according to HESA statistics - we are pleased to have made this further significant purchase in Manchester”.
Paul Hadaway, Chief Executive of Empiric Student Property Plc.
The development is spread across 6 blocks on a site of 3.5 acres, with the 561 on-site beds spread across 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments with nine 3 bedroom duplexes. Unlike many student accommodation blocks built in recent years the development also benefits from a large amount of parking spaces (197 in fact).
In true Empiric style, each studio and apartment is beautifully designed to a high-quality specification with all the mod-cons that students will need and more!
"We continue to develop our strong working relationship with Empiric Student Properties. As the demand for high-end finishes on student accommodation continues, our products consistently align to these requirements and provide a high-quality finish and practical solution for the modern student apartment”.
Stansons Group Sales Manager, Elliot Chmielinski
