More student flats could be on the way as plans submitted for Paradise Street

A new student housing block on Paradise Street containing over 300 bedrooms came one step to reality this week after plans were submitted by developers.

The building, which would be managed by AXO Student Living, is proposed for the site of a former MOT garage.

As well as the accommodation, it would also include a landscaped garden area for students to relax in.

“The application site is located on the south eastern edge of the city centre and is within very close proximity to Coventry University’s facilities,” a statement in the submission reads.

“Thus it is considered that the site is ideally located in sustainability terms to meet the identified need for further student accommodation.

“The adjacent student scheme at 15-23 Paradise Street and the recently granted student scheme abutting the site to the north demonstrates that the principle for student accommodation is supported in the area and that the use successfully exists in this location.

“The proposed purpose-built student accommodation development will form part of the regeneration of the wider Paradise Street and London Road area located on the edge of the city centre.

“The proposal will enhance a previously run-down site and provide a sustainable location for student accommodation as services and amenities are located close by.”
