As recently covered, the big student block by the station named ‘Sherwood Court’ is rising quickly. Whilst changing trains at the station last week I took a couple of photos showing progress:

410 students will be living there. Should bring a bit of buzz about the place. Hopefully some decent cafes, pubs and restaurants will start to move into some nearby units. Once complete it should look like this. Below is the view from Thurston Road:

Work is also progressing on next door’s Flora Villa development:

And the facade of the main blocks by the station are clearer to see:

Alongside these, the third building of that development is now underway. It was just reaching three-storeys when I passed – I think it’s now up another level.

The webcam looking over the site can be seen here. And by the summer the road layout should be mainly finished, which will allow an easier walk from the station to the town centre. Maybe.
