Glassworks to be reborn as luxury student accommodation

Luxury student accommodation provider, IconInc, is set to build its second development, The Glassworks, on Cardigan Road in Leeds.

The new accommodation, valued at £19m, will open in September 2017 and provide 10 jobs and a new lease of life to the area which has been derelict for 15 years.

The 6 storey development will feature 154 luxury apartments, providing boutique hotel-rooms with ensuite bathrooms plush double or king beds, a flat screen TV, high-speed Wi-Fi and all-inclusive utility bills.

Tenants can choose from a range of optional extras including professional cleaning, daily fresh fruit delivery, kitchen equipment, luxury Egyptian cotton towels and bedding hand-picked by IconInc’s interior designers. 

The building’s exterior will include an outdoor space inspired by George Clark Amazing Spaces with themed pods. The pods will each be uniquely designed and available for students to hire for study, quiet time or socialising.

Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director of Parklane Group said: “There’s exciting times ahead for the IconInc brand and we’re pleased to celebrate its successful launch by expanding with a second development in Leeds.

“The modern day student demands much more from their living space than basic accommodation and the IconInc properties will give them exactly that – high end, luxury living. We appeal to the growing number of students looking for something special because our accommodation is guaranteed to make moving in easy and with all the additional home comforts and special extras taken care of.”

IconInc apartments at The Edge start from £165 per week.
