Urbanest stands at the forefront of contemporary student accommodation in London, currently overseeing more than 3,000 student beds spread across seven properties. These locations serve students from some of the city's most prestigious universities, such as LSE and King's College. Among its plans, Urbanest is now poised to address the acute need for student housing with its proposal for a new mixed-use development at 2 Trafalgar Way, Tower Hamlets.

This proposed site is not just any location; it's strategically positioned on the edge of Canary Wharf, adjacent to the venerable Billingsgate Market, and has lain vacant and neglected for years. The development envisions bolstering the academic prowess of London by potentially supporting the prestigious growth trajectories of institutions like UCL's School of Management in Canary Wharf and the new UCL East campus in Stratford.

With a deep belief in the potential of 2 Trafalgar Way, the proposals aim to enrich the site with economic and social offerings that would benefit not only the local community but also the broader area of Tower Hamlets. The planning application submitted to the Borough outlines an ambitious mixed-use campus. This project includes three buildings connected by a sky bridge dedicated to student living, promising 1,672 purpose-built, high-quality student rooms. Importantly, 35% of these accommodations are earmarked to meet the Greater London Authority's (GLA) affordable housing criteria.

Beyond student housing, the plan integrates 68 residential units tailored for academic and professional staff, featuring 2, 3, and 4-bedroom apartments, Envisioned as a vibrant community hub, the development proposes new flexible workspaces, incubator spaces, communal areas for students, a children's soft play area, a cycle workshop, and café, alongside the revitalization of a McDonald's Drive-Thru restaurant. The transformation extends to Trafalgar Way itself, planned to undergo a comprehensive landscaping overhaul.

The project not only promises bricks and mortar transformation but also projects a significant economic injection into the local economy with an estimated £23 million Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) contribution, approximately £18 million of which will directly benefit the Tower Hamlets borough. Further economic activity is anticipated, with an estimated £10.5 million projected to be spent annually in the borough by students, residents, and staff associated with the development.

This information is rendered with the aim to provide a clear, factual overview of the proposed developments by Urbanest at 2 Trafalgar Way, ensuring that the community and prospective stakeholders are well-informed of the potential impact and benefits of this project, without leaning on marketing persuasions.
