The Lap of Luxury

Forget Goldney Hall, it’s got nothing on these swanky student digs

A property developer is all set to splash out a whopping £35-40 million to transform an ugly office block in central Bristol into seriously plush student pads.

Fusion Students plans to convert Froomsgate House by 2015, providing around 450 students with flashy studio flats.

The developer already owns King Square Gardens, where rent can be as steep as £237 a week. Benefits include a free on-site gym, a freeview TV in every room and a ‘cinema room’.

As the birth place of high-end letting agency Student Cribs, Bristol’s no stranger to luxury student accommodation.

In July, The Bristol Post reported that firm Vita is set to pump around £14 million into a development on Colston Avenue, aiming to offer 131 ‘high-specification’ student flats.
