Student housing development opportunity being marketed in Oxford

Canterbury Works CGI (2)[5]

Canterbury Works, Glanville Road in Oxford are being sold for a new consented Student Housing Scheme by White Commercial Surveyors.

Planning consent has been granted for the redevelopment of the existing two- storey furniture showroom, providing a mixed-use commercial use on the ground floor and 12 x one-bed student accommodation on the first and second floors.

Canterbury Works is located off the Cowley Road in Oxford adjoining existing student housing provided by A2 Dominion and Host developers. The site is 10 minutes from the centre of Oxford.

The Cambridge Centre’s for Housing & Planning research of student housing demand and supply for Oxford City Council confirms that a
total of 13,467 student rooms would have to be built if the current and potential future ‘shortfalls’ in student accommodation are to be met. This would accommodate all of the students who are not currently housed by their educational institution, and living in existing family housing shared with other students, therefore, allowing the return of all shared houses currently occupied by students to the open market.
