The CODE development on Western Road in Leicester provides high quality student accommodation designed by rg+p and breathes new life into a run down area.
Redundant buildings had provided a poor outlook for local residents and a negative effect on the local area and economy.
The third and final phase of this development provides 425 beds on the site next to the Grand Union Canal. It finally completes the gap left by previous developments, using industrial land that has suffered from lack of investment.
The project has acted as a catalyst for regeneration of the wider area in a number of ways. It replaced previously redundant factory and commercial buildings with a high quality development that has helped to free up existing housing stock in the Westcotes area.
CODE has already started to create the impetus for local families to move back into the area where previously the very high level of student occupation, which had become the norm, had made this difficult.
This brings greater diversity and balance to this area of Leicester and 600 additional residents are a positive influence on the local economy. They include rising values and increased opportunities for commercial enterprise.
The project can also be a catalyst for further development of Leicester’s waterside.
