Student flats at a busy Preston crossroads have been shortlisted for an award.


Canterbury Hall in North Road and St George’s Road opened in September last year.

Including 191 apartments, a cinema room, gym and roof terrace they’ve been shortlisted in multiple categories of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors awards.

Managing director of Fraser Morgan Mark Robinson said: “We’re absolutely thrilled our Canterbury Hall development has been recognised in this way.

“This scheme was always about offering something different within the student accommodation sector in Preston – providing not just a place to live, but an inspiring environment that allows students to thrive.

“More than anything these nominations show the quality and craftsmanship that’s gone into creating this sustainable, high-performing building. It’s a credit to our construction partner, architect and wider professional team of consultants for delivering such an outstanding project.”
