BRISTOL’S FROOMSGATE HOUSE TRANSFORMED INTO STUDENT ACCOMMODATION
Property developers Fusion Students has completed the conversion of a multi-tenanted office building in Bristol into high-end contemporary residential accommodation with bed spaces for 480 students.
The multi-million-pound redevelopment of the 15-storey, 91,335 sq ft Fusion Tower – formerly known as Froomsgate House – on Rupert Street in the centre of the city includes the addition of two storeys to the roof level.
In addition to offering occupants living space – studio rooms, three- to six-bedroom apartments, studio flats and twin ‘two-dios’ – the building includes open study rooms, breakout spaces, a private gym, games areas, a cinema, a laundry, a concierge service and off-street parking.
Fusion Students was advised on the Fusion Tower redevelopment by the construction team at leading commercial law firm Thrings, led by partner Eric Livingston, and supported by associate solicitor Natalia Sokolov and solicitor Tyler Buckley.
Warren Rosenberg, co-founder of Fusion Students, said: “The Fusion experience goes beyond stylish buildings and luxury amenities. We strive to provide our residents with the new generation of design-led accommodation which is designed primarily around social spaces to appeal to the taste of modern-day students. Our first priority is positively improving the lives of our student residents.”
Eric Livingston added: “Fusion Tower reflects the growing demand for more superior quality accommodation as well as the changing requirements of the domestic and international student market.
“Thrings is very pleased to be playing a part in the ongoing regeneration of Bristol city centre, and as a firm, we look forward to working with Fusion Students on its pipeline of development schemes in the student accommodation sector in the future.”
