Work set to start on £10m student scheme in Fabric District

The construction of a £10 million student housing scheme in the Fabric District is set to get underway.

Mount Property Group has completed the purchase of land earmarked for the seven-storey, 124-room development on Devon Street.

Located on the edge of Knowledge Quarter Liverpool, ‘Innovo’ will include 80 en suite units and 44 studios, as well as a large entrance lobby, a laundry service and bike storage.

The build is due for completion by September 2019, in time for next year’s intake of students.

A spokesperson of Mount Property Group says: “This is an exciting time for Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter.

“The city centre population has doubled in the past decade, due in large part to the huge increase in its student body.

“We are pleased to be adding energy, investment and accommodation to Liverpool’s academic hub and doing our bit to contribute to the city’s position as the fastest growing economy in the Northern Powerhouse.”
