ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2019

Project Detail

Oval Living, New Walk, Leicester

Large Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Finalist

The Oval Living development has revitalised one of the few unused parcels of land on Leicester’s historic New Walk. The student accommodation project is designed for modern living and to be sympathetic to the local character.

Inspiration was drawn from the surrounding Victorian villas for the design, with natural daylight and ventilation achieved by large floor-to-ceiling windows and Juliet balconies.

The four storey Oval Living includes 54 studio apartments, laundry, cycle storage and a private landscaped garden. The internal specification of the studios is high, emulating the feel of a boutique hotel.

Project Overview

Approximately a quarter of Oval Living’s studios are dual aspect, allowing residents multiple views across the picturesque New Walk streetscape and adjacent Oval public green space.

The site also features several mature trees which contribute to the unique nature of New Walk. The building was designed to work sympathetically alongside these trees

Easily accessible to both of Leicester’s universities, Oval Living has proved popular. Apartments were booked immediately after launch and it has a waiting list for the future.
