Primus plots 443-bed Lancaster student scheme 

Designed by Tim Groom Architects, the development would comprise two blocks off Bulk Road on the fringe of the city centre. 

Student accommodation specialists Primus Property Group has launched a consultation on the proposals for a 443-bedroom scheme and aims to submit a planning application to Lancaster City Council at the end of February. 

Of the two blocks, one would be constructed on a site currently being used as a car wash on the corner of Bulk Road and Caton Street. The other building would occupy a vacant site between Farmfoods and the former Kashis restaurant on Parliament Street. 

The scheme features a cinema room, gym, yoga studio and study spaces. 

Stride Treglown is also advising Prime on the scheme. 

There is precedent for student accommodation in the area. In 2016, Lancaster City Council approved Real estate investor Hines’ plan for 630 student bedrooms across eight buildings on nearby Caton Street. 

The first phase of the project completed in 2019.
