Birmingham-based investor and developer – Volume.Property – submits a planning application for the third and final phase of its prestigious Volume Works purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) development in Birmingham city centre.
The application is currently under review by the local council. If approved, construction is expected to begin later this year. The development is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the 2025/26 academic year.
The final phase of Volume Works will deliver 220 student beds to the existing 156 beds across the wider project, catering to the growing demand for high-quality, modern living spaces for students in the city. Phase three studios will include high-spec amenities such as ample storage space, high-speed internet and en-suite bathrooms.
Amenities at Volume Works include the communal areas which offers social spaces, study areas, a gym and outdoor space. Provision has also been made for a minimum of 48 cycle parking spaces, promoting sustainable transport to and from the development.
“The student accommodation sector is changing rapidly, and today’s students expect a better level of product and service than ever before. At Volume.Property, we’ve been pioneering new ways of enhancing the student experience, and that’s been evident in our results.”Anthony Laville, CEO, Volume.Property

Volume.Property teamed up with Hortus Investments to deliver the wider Volume Works project. Hortus Investments was founded in 2019 by members of Birmingham’s well-known Horton family, active in property throughout the Midlands.
