The scheme incorporates Vega, a 37 storey student accommodation scheme with 842 bedrooms and a 6 storey office block Miles Yard. The office block also features a rooftop multi use games area which will be accessible to local residents as well as students.
It is expected to transform the current closed-off and railed site frontage into an open, accessible and welcoming entrance plaza. The café on the ground floor will create an active and vibrant frontage on Miles Street, delivering a new place for local residents to enjoy.
The new buildings will be set further back than the current building line, increasing space for pedestrians along Miles Street with high-quality landscaping introduced around the site, transforming it into an attractive pedestrian route.
