Berkeley First’s plans to develop a 96 unit student accomodation facility on NEC’s former office site in Park Royal have been approved.
The plans for the site of NEC House, at 1 Victoria Road, were designed by Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher Architects. They involve the demolition of the existing office building and construction of mixed-use redevelopment of the site to provide a grouping of buildings rising from three storeys at the south, to 11, 15 and 19 storeys at the northern end of the site, with a lower seven storey building linking the 11 and 15 storey buildings and a single storey linking these to the taller element.
The buildings will contain 96 student cluster apartments of between five and eight rooms per cluster, providing 591 study rooms, and 65 student studios, as well as office and retail space.
The development has been designed to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating.
