Watkin Jones lodges £200m Bournemouth scheme
Construction group Watkin Jones has submitted plans to develop three sites in the Lansdowne area of Bournemouth Town Centre
Three sites on Oxford Road, Holdenhurst Road and Christchurch Road will together feature 930 student rooms, more than 245,000 sq ft of teaching and office space and a hotel.
It is the third major scheme in the city for the firm and will involve building a total of 600,000 sq ft across buildings varying in size from 8-17 storeys.
The proposals will attempt to meet Bournemouth University’s requirement for additional teaching space and a student hub as well as more accommodation close to the Lansdowne area.
