Due on site Q3 2015

The new Beckley Court Student Accommodation provides 500 en-suite high quality student rooms designed to be fully inclusive and accessible. The form of the tower within the design has a layered splay approach and a stronger connection at ground level. The tower’s corner magnificently protrudes out of the ground with recesses on either side, which enhances its presence and becomes a celebration of its height and grandeur.

 

The top floor holds the students’ sky lounge and common room which provides views towards the famous Plymouth Hoe. The design also allowed the introduction of green roofs which will enhance the building’s sustainable credentials. Once completed, this will be the tallest building in Plymouth.
