HG Construction






The Stour Road project, is an £80 Million scheme located in east London and will  include a 330-bed student accommodation as well as commercial space. 

Interestingly, the site was previously home to John Broadwood & Sons piano factory, which was demolished and replaced in the 1960s. The design of the new building gives a stylish nod to the historical use of the site.

As well as a residential building for 330 students, the scheme encompasses an incubator workspace for graduates, artists’ studios, and an exhibition and performance space. 

The new building will range in height from five to seven storeys and provide 1,908 sqm (GIA) of commercial space (use class B1c Business),  in addition to the 330 student rooms (279 en suite, 34 shared bathroom, 11 wheelchair accessible and 6 wheelchair accessible studios). There is also provision of B1 yard and podium amenity space, along with public realm improvements, blue bay car parking, cycle parking, refuse/recycling stores and new sub station.

The development is ideally placed for the University of the Arts London and is due for completion in Summer 2023.
