The Parklane Group has unveiled plans to expand its luxury student accommodation brand, IconInc, into Lincoln with a £20 million development set to open in 2019.
With 138 luxury apartments, the Lincoln IconInc development will commence construction early in 2018 and will be situated in the very heart of the City Centre, just a ten-minute walk from Lincoln University and Central Station, at the junction point between Beaumont Fee Mint Lane and Park Street.
Students residing at the new development will enjoy the unrivalled all-inclusive facilities offered by the IconInc brand. These include a steam room, sauna, home cinema, gym, a fully equipped pantry with grab-and-go breakfast and a 24-hour concierge, as well as an array of communal areas where students can socialise, dine and study together.
Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director of the Parklane Group, explains: “We are pleased to be bringing the IconInc brand to Lincoln, building on the success of our existing developments in Liverpool and Leeds, and setting a new standard in luxury student living in Lincolnshire. IconInc aims to reinvent student living and strives to improve student lifestyle by offering residents unrivalled facilities, the latest in technology, luxury design and furnishings, all conveniently located to make the most of their University city. Putting the experience and the welfare of tenants at the heart of what we do is key to IconInc’s success and we strive to provide a level of luxury living that exceeds the expectations of our tenants.”
The development is set to be ideally located within a close proximity of shopping and entertainment areas with a multitude of bars, restaurants, cafes, high street shops and a cinema complex. The site boasts excellent connections to local facilities and transport links, a key feature of all IconInc’s developments, as well as being safely accessible on foot by pedestrian only zones.
The site is currently home to a former school building, St Martins Parish Hall and Stokes Warehouse. The development scheme proposes to retain the three buildings present on site, securing their future in the landscape whilst renovating them to allow them to be usable enjoyable spaces.
Current IconInc developments are known as the most covetable spaces in the cities they’re in and with future plans to expand across the UK, IconInc is set to change the shape of student living.
