The nine-storey Straits Aire student accommodation scheme at 26-34 Merrion Street in Leeds will complete in summer 2024. The 32,000 sq ft (2,898 sq m) building will provide 88 boutique en-suite studios, including four rooms designed for those with disabilities and two premium suites.

With on-site facilities including a cinema, gym, lounge, event, dining and breakout study space, as well as laundry facilities, it is expected to appeal to students seeking high specification accommodation.
