Plans for a major city centre mixed-use scheme in Nottingham have been given the green light.

Nottingham City Council’s planning bosses gave the nod to Fusion Students plans yesterday to build a multi-use development called King Edward Court that will house 568 students, 96 residential units and ground floor commercial space.

The scheme is designed by Corstorphine and Wright.

The site is on the junction of Glasshouse Street, Lower Parliament Street and King Edward Street and currently houses a number of office buildings with surface parking.

The student accommodation will be eight storeys in the south east of the site, and then the building steps up to nine storeys towards Huntingdon Street to form the residential part of the development.

Completion is scheduled for summer 2024.
