Brent Council has approved Unite’s plans for a 699-bed student accommodation scheme on Olympic Way in Wembley.
The plans, designed by TateHindle for the one-acre site, include a 19-storey block with accommodation for 699 students in a mix of shared flats and self-contained studios. The plans also include 10,000 sq ft of retail. The site will be developed by Unite’s joint venture with GIC – the London Student Accommodation Vehicle.
Work is expected to begin later this year.
