More than 1,000 units of student accommodation will be created in this new flagship building – Lime Street View – at a highly visible and important site alongside Liverpool’s Lime Street Station.

We are working with Unite Students on the Skelhorne Street project which will see a U-shaped development ranging in height between 19 and 22 storeys. It will also include two ground floor retail units in addition to the student accommodation.

The building’s predominant use of brick will reflect the Victorian architecture and industrial character of the adjoining station.

The total accommodation of 1,085 bedrooms will be contained in 74 studio rooms and 138 `clusters’ of between four and 10 bedrooms each.

The development will complement the ongoing enhancement of the Lime Street area as a gateway to Liverpool and help provide a positive first impression for visitors.

““This is an important location for the city situated alongside Lime Street Station and we wanted to be respectful of the local context – both of the station itself and nearby buildings in terms of design and materials,””
