The listed Art Deco frontage of Talbot House will be retained, while most of the old building and an adjacent derelict office building will be demolished.

Contemporary facilities

The finished accommodation will include 74 studios, 110 two-bedroom apartments, and 40 clusters of three-to-six bedroom apartments.

There will also be communal areas, laundry rooms, a reception and offices, a gym, and bike and rubbish storage areas.

The retained front area will be used for a library, study and meeting spaces, and a ground-floor café that will open to the public.

The development will see Talbot Street become a "student quarter", with three other student accommodation having been built there in recent years.
