Tiger launches Lloyds Bank green loan-backed student homes scheme

Hoxton London is the first 'ground-up' students homes scheme backed by the bank's pioneering green loan initiative.

Tiger Developments and it's sister company Host Sudent Housing have unveiled Hoxton London, in what they are calling a 'Happiness-driven' student accommodation scheme that is back by Lloyds Bank's green loan initiative.

Tiger and Host Student Housing have developed over 12,500 student beds in the UK and Europe. the 273-bed scheme has been designed by architect Stride Treglown. 

Senior Development Manager at Tiger Developments, Keith Dean, said: "By drawing on extensive expertise, The Project at Hoxton sets a precedent for quality and research-led design in this sector. The student accommodation market is rapidly changing with growth at the top end. Within this competative market, it's critical we deliver buildings that enhance the student experience, and this goes hand-in-hand with responding to their wellbeing and welfare needs."

The Project is the first ground-up student development support by Lloyds Bank's green loan, with funding through the bank;s Green Lending Initiative.

The building has been awarded a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating and once occupied, the development and investement team are committed to procurring all the building's energy from renewable sources.

A dedicated student management Project Guide is on site to help curate a specialised programme of social activities and wellbeing initiatives, such as yoga and cooking lessons.

Kate Wojciechowski, South East Regional Manager at Host, said: "Wellbeing and welfare is primary to The Project at Hoxton's ethos. This environment is designed to nourish a balanced lifestyle and a supportive student community. By appointing a specialised Project Guide, The Project at Hoxton is taking the right steps to maintaining and enhancing the wellbeing of its residents and helping them to adjust to their new lives."
