A six-storey student accommodation development in the heart of Leeds has welcomed its first residents. The Glassworks has been brought to the market by award-winning luxury student living brand IconInc and features 150 extravagant and luxurious apartments.
Students living at The Glassworks are treated with the same unrivalled all-inclusive facilities and superior interior design expected of a boutique hotel, all year round. Each luxury apartment at The Glassworks includes plush 1,000 pocket sprung double or king size beds, en-suite bathrooms, flat screen smart TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi and all-inclusive utility bills. To maximise comfort, convenience and well-being, residents can enjoy complimentary breakfast and a 24-hour concierge to assist with all manner of enquiries from ordering a taxi to lending a hand with shopping.
Situated on a site that had previously been left derelict for nearly 20 years, construction on the development began in 2015 with Broadley acting as the main contractor for the works. It is a timber frame brick built structure with high level cladding and a kalzip roof. Paul Manku, development director for the Broadley Group, said:
“I think the main challenge for this project was coordination because of the size of the job and the client’s high quality fixtures and fittings. If you look at social media the feedback has been brilliant and everyone’s really pleased.”
Having wowed the nation and received international recognition for its first luxury development, The Edge in Leeds, IconInc is revolutionising student living once again and elevating it to a whole new level of luxury. Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director of Parklane Group, explained:
“We are continuously innovating to further meet the changing needs of students who want to get more from their accommodation than just a living space. We’ve raised the bar even higher with The Glassworks, bringing Leeds students an unparalleled level of luxury, superior quality facilities and stunning interior design like never before.
“The Glassworks provides the highest quality living environment which gives students everything they need in one place, a place enabling them to embrace student life – relax, dine, socialise, enjoy hobbies and study.”
Residents of The Glassworks will benefit from the award winning modern interior, stylish furnishings and first-class technology expected of IconInc.
Facilities available to all residents of The Glassworks include a state-of-the-art gym with personal trainers, sauna and steam room and an array of communal areas where students can socialise, dine and study together such as the home cinema which is equipped with a 9ft screen and surround sound. There is also a spectacular ‘mega kitchen’ with wok burners, a lavish lounge with wide screen TVs and cosy sofas, group study rooms and games zone to relax away the evening with FIFA or a game of pool.
Completely new to The Glassworks is an innovative outdoor space, including uniquely designed ‘glamping pods’ overlooking the IconInc landscaped garden which students can book for sleepovers or simply to chill in – they can even stoke up the BBQ for a truly al fresco evening.
