Property investor Staton Young has been given planning permission to turn a former HMRC building into 166 student flats.

Northgate House on Agard Street in Derby will be transformed just months after Staton Young bought the building.

The scheme is being designed by Maber Architects.

Marc Brough, managing director at Staton Young, said: “Whilst our portfolio remains heavily centred on high quality serviced office space, we have been keen to move into the student accommodation sector for some time.

“We view Agard Street as a key University street, and we are very excited about the University of Derby’s proposed plans for developing their sites further south on Agard Street, and we see our scheme as wholly complementary, serving to meet the needs of growing numbers of students attracted to Derby.”
