This property adjacent to Finsbury Park station was acquired in September 2010 by the Generation/Carlyle JV with the benefit of planning consent for a new 400 bed purpose built student residence and up to 24,358 square feet of commercial floor space (B1/B8).
Following demolition and site enabling works, the construction contract was placed with Mace Limited, a leading contractor.
The building opened in Summer 2012 launching the Pure Student Living brand.
This location is especially well situated for a new student residence as connectivity to Central London’s various educational establishments from Finsbury Park station (Victoria & Piccadilly Lines) and National Rail Network are excellent.
The new student residence provides 400 high quality bed spaces arranged in a range of room types which includes study bedrooms, premium study bedrooms and single studios.
Other facilities include an extensive provision of communal spaces with large shared kitchens & lounges, internet/study spaces, games areas, gym, laundry and secure parking for 200 cycles.
The commercial accommodation at ground level is arranged as two separate independent units both with potential for expansion through insertion of a mezzanine over part of each unit. A change of use on the northern unit of circa 14,000 sq. ft. enabled its letting to Pure Gym.
