Glasgow property firm Maven’s student flats move to Dundee

Glasgow-based Maven Capital Partners, a leading UK property and private equity manager, and Glenmore Group, a London-based investment firm, have started work on a new purpose built student accommodation complex (PBSA) in Dundee.

The development site on the site of a former Hessian fabric factory is located between Douglas Street and Brown Street in the city center and has been vacant for several years. Full planning permission has been granted for 152 studio apartments and leisure spaces.

The property will be completed before the 2024/25 academic year.

The £19.9million development was funded in part by Glenmore, along with a bank facility from Puma Property Finance. Maven will act as asset manager for the project, which is being built by Aberdeen-based CHAP Group.

The project is less than 10 minutes’ walk from the University of Dundee and Abertay University campuses.

There will be a partially covered roof terrace on the top floor of the studios.

Maven has extensive experience in the PBSA sector and has developed, managed and operated a number of properties in many UK university cities including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Durham, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Commenting on the move, Paul Johnston, Partner at Maven said: “The PBSA sector has a history of low volatility and despite broader macroeconomic issues, such as B. the cost of living, we continue to see strong demand both domestically and internationally.”

Glenmore Student Property’s Andrew Whiteley said: “We are delighted to be working with Maven and the Chap Group to deliver a world class and much needed new PBSA program in Dundee.”
