Specialist developer Crown Student Living has unveiled outline proposals for a 15-storey student village in Swansea Docks, involving 620 bed spaces, a cinema and associated communal facilities.

The site – known as SA1 – on Kings Road is currently used as a surface car park and already has planning permission for a student accommodation development of around 500 bed spaces.

Alder King Planning Consultancy is due to submit a detailed application later this year.

The developer’s architects have promised to create “a contemporary, striking and elegant building with crisp lines and subtle tonal variations to offer an architectural statement and gateway building to this important coastal site”.
