More Student Flats

In the latest news on the corporate profiteering front, construction giant Watkin Jones has struck a deal to sell a block of student flats to German private equity company Deutsche Finance International. The 462-bed Tannery scheme, in Bath Lane, was sold for £35.6 million.

In related news, just a few years back Watkin Jones also completed the construction of a 600-bed student complex opposite Friars Mill called Merlin Heights. In 2019 this site was sold on to Arlington Advisors which made this investment group the “largest independently-owned student accommodation platform” in the UK.
