The £25million development will comprise two separate but linked buildings offering 354 student rooms in clusters of four to six bedrooms, with a private courtyard for students.
A new pedestrian route linking Caledonia Street to Falkner Street will also be created, reinstating the historic pattern of the area, and creating a green edge around the buildings.
A key feature of the development is the new contemporary courtyard enclosed by two L shaped student buildings. There will be new public realm around the site which includes new and wider footpaths and greening of the streets.
Construction of Philharmonic Court will be completed in mid August 2015.
