Rede House, Corporation Road, MiddlesboroughConversion of Offices to Student Accommodation
DMS Architecture have prepared a full planning application for the conversion of the six upper floors of the existing seven-storey office building in the centre of Middlesborough into 240 self-contained student studios. Associated communal facilities such as an entertainment lounge, gymnasium, laundry and concierge office are all being provided through the conversion of a number of the existing ground floor retail units, animating the fully glazed active frontage to Corporation Road. The planning application is due to be submitted to Middlesborough Council shortly.
Based on the demand for this type of accommodation in the town it is envisaged that the completed student units would be 90% – 100% upon completion. The location of this building is very desirable for the type of tenant (student) and it is envisaged that tenants currently residing in residential housing outside of the town centre would relocate to this position.
