The Benedict’s Gate scheme will offer 302 ensuite and studio rooms for students, along with communal kitchens and lounges. The landscaping around the development will be of a high quality, addressing the need to provide vibrant and sustainable outdoor space, alongside other modern sustainable features. There will also be a new public car park to be run by the city council, which will assist local businesses and ensure St Benedict’s remains a vibrant independent shopping destination.
Speaking at the opening event, Alumno managing director David Campbell said: “Benedict’s Gate is another leap forward in terms of offering students who choose to study in Norwich high quality, secure and modern accommodation in a vibrant location in this dynamic city. It is important for the future residents of our latest Norwich development to be able to explore and experience the locality and environment they will be living in, which is why we’ve launched a show studio room now.
