Morgan Sindall has been appointed to deliver a 435 bed student accommodation development in Southampton.

Work is already underway on the building for Vita Student which will include an impressive 1,200 sq m communal area comprising a large social hub, movie room, gym, private dining area and dedicated study areas.

The scheme on Portswood Road is Select Property Group’s second Vita Student residence in Southampton and is scheduled for delivery in time for the start of the academic year in 2018.

With Vita Student’s existing Richmond House residence already a popular choice for students in the city, its new residence will see the award-winning brand double its presence on the south coast.

Mark Oakes, Chief Commercial Officer at Select Property Group, said: “We’re hugely excited to be launching our second residence in Southampton and it’s great to see the Morgan Sindall team on site and the scheme starting to take shape.

“We’re looking forward to updating people on the development of the scheme over the coming months.”

Jon Daines, area director at Morgan Sindall, said: "We're delighted to be working closely with Vita Student to deliver this exciting development.

"The scheme takes student accommodation to the next level and has been designed with the needs of today's students as the central element.

"Our team is already making good progress on-site and we look forward to handing over the scheme in time for the start of the academic year in 2018."
