Practice creates 1,000-bed block a stone’s throw from Aldgate Station
Developer Unite Students is seeking planning permission for a 24-storey tower featuring more than 1,000 student beds at a key City fringe intersection.
The proposals, drawn up by Architecture PLB, would occupy a 0.23ha site at the corner of Middlesex Street and Whitechapel High Street, near to Aldgate Underground Station. It currently houses an electricity substation, which would be demolished but reprovided under the scheme.
PLB’s design would deliver 1,052 student bedrooms, of which around 100 would be studio apartments, in a block that steps up from 18 storeys at its north. The project site is a short distance south of TP Bennett’s 34-storey Nido Spitalfields student accommodation tower.
