The Station Court PBSA scheme in Tottenham has received a full refurbishment.

Provider of student accommodation – Unite Students – has completed thew refurbished of its Station Court purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) scheme in London.

Unite are transforming the 220-bed development with the purpose of improving its resident experience and to help realise its aim of becoming net zero carbon.

Situated nearby the Seven Sisters station in Tottenham, all the kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, and the reception at Station Court have been updated, alongside improvements to its entrance and amenity areas to include larger study and social space. 

The £5.7m project, which took six months, introduces new white goods to the kitchens such as fridges and microwaves. It also includes the installation of solar panels to generate renewable electricity on site, plus smart controls on hot water and heating systems.

These measures aid Unite Students in its aim to become net zero carbon across its operations by 2030.

“This has been an impressive transformation of Station Court with residents benefiting from a complete refurbishment of bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and study and social spaces. All these upgrades improve the quality of the building and help move us closer to our goal of becoming net zero carbon by 2030. 

“This refurbishment is part of our commitment to a wider transformation programme of between £50m to £75m investment in our existing portfolio this year, to help ensure a great student experience and continue delivering our purpose of creating a Home for Success.”
