MCR Property Group has put the finishing touches on Unity Square, its flagship student accommodation development in Liverpool.
The £17million, seven-storey scheme provides 240 single-occupancy rooms configured as eight to eleven-bedroom clusters of premium flats. Studio apartments are also available.
Each room is completed to a high specification, with en-suite bathrooms and high-speed internet standard in all units.
A reception area includes a double-height atrium, break-out seating areas on the ground level, and communal, landscaped gardens outside. The property offers 26 parking spaces and bicycle storage at basement level.
Construction began in February 2019, with MCR Property Group’s in-house contracting arm and subcontractors working to a tight deadline to ensure the property was ready in time for students starting their 2019 academic year.
Unity Square is being managed by Regency Living, which is part of Regency Residential, the sales arm of MCR Property Group.
Available on a 44-week contract, the room prices start at £98 per week for a premium apartment with communal kitchen. A £95 application fee is required.
The development has already welcomed more than 200 students and is currently 70% occupied, with several rooms still available to rent.
Student living in the heart of Liverpool
Close to Islington Road North on the fringes of the city centre, Unity Square is conveniently located opposite Liverpool Hope University’s Creative Campus.
Unity Square is also a short distance from Liverpool John Moores University, the University of Liverpool, Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, with the city’s travel hubs, shopping areas and culture easily accessible.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Nick Lake, asset manager at MCR Property Group, said: “We are really pleased and proud of our team – both the construction managers, sub-contractors and the Regency team.
“I am thrilled to say we have completed the building on time and created a great environment for students to live.
“Unity Square is designed to meet the demand for high-quality student accommodation among Liverpool’s significant university populations.”
