Morgan Sindall has bagged a deal to build a 435-bed student accommodation scheme in Southampton.
Client Select Property Group has picked Morgan Sindall to deliver its Vita Student development on Portswood Road in the city.
The project will provide 435 student bedrooms, along with a 13,000 sq ft communal area which includes social space and a gym.
Morgan Sindall has already started works on site and is due to deliver the scheme in September 2018 in time for the academic year.
Commenting on the deal, Select Property Group chief commercial officer Mark Oakes said: “We’re hugely excited to be launching our second residence in Southampton and it’s great to see the Morgan Sindall team on site and the scheme starting to take shape.
“We’re looking forward to updating on the development of the scheme over the coming months.”
The Portswood Road scheme is the latest of Select Property Group’s Vita Student projects to get under way, with Wates due to complete two self-service apartment buildings comprising 604 luxury apartments and 22 penthouses at Manchester’s Circle Square later this year.
Earlier this month, Construction News revealed that Select had chosen John Sisk & Son to deliver its £247m Affinity Living scheme at the same site.
