This modern development in the south east of the city centre represents a significant addition to Leeds's city centre apartment provision for students. The development comprises both en-suite (where there is an individual shower room for the sole use of the occupant of the study bedroom) and non-ensuite shared apartments.
The development has been carefully designed to incorporate excellent safety features in addition to a high degree of comfort and convenience for the tenants. Each flat has a spacious living room and dining area off the kitchen. A washer/drier is provided within the rent level. Water and heating is provided by electric heaters which are controlled by the tenants on time switches and thermostats. As a modern building there is a high standard of insulation of both windows and walls.
One five bedroomed shared flat is accessible for students in wheelchairs. Bathrooms are adapted wet rooms with seated showering facilities. Kitchen facilities are not height adapted so may not be suitable for some. If you have special accommodation requirements and would like to discuss your needs with Unipol, please click here for further information.
The building is protected by a heat and smoke detector fire system with self closing fire doors and protected exit routes.
Entry to the flats is via a spacious reception area with seating and a reception desk. There are two lifts in the building which take you into the two different parts of the building. The building (and the perimeter in the evening) is secured with access by swipe fob for tenants and entry phone for visitors. CCTV is recording images from aruond the building as well as majority of communal areas outside each flat, including lifts, bike store entry and lift lobbies.
