The London Borough of Tower Hamlets Strategic Planning Committee has voted unanimously in favour of this proposal, located next to Queen Mary University at Mile End. 

The development, for Scape Living and designed by Stephen Marshall Architects includes two separate four storey podium blocks of student apartments – the easterly block flanked by two eight storey towers rising from the podium level and the western block by an eight storey block and a ten storey tower, all containing 412 student rooms along with associated kitchen/diners and communal facilities.

Planning permission already existing for a similar proposal, so CMA Planning and the project team sought to work within these parameters to improve the quality of the accommodation, and how the building is operated and managed - which will benefit future occupiers and people in the local area, whilst delivering a significant volume of much needed student housing.
