Round Hill Capital and NBK Capital are to make their student housing debut in Ireland, after outlining plans to build a 145-bed scheme on a site acquired in Cork.
The one-acre, mixed-use development site at Farranlea Road will kick-start a broader strategy to deliver more than 1,200 student beds across Cork, Dublin and Galway.
The building will be managed by Nido Student, Round Hill’s platform for European student accommodation.
Round Hill said it had more than €1bn (£900m) of dedicated capital to deploy into the local build-to-rent and purpose-built student accommodation sectors in Ireland.
