18 February 2019 – Expansión
Urbania is increasing its commitment to halls of residence for students. The real estate firm, through its subsidiary Syllabus, is planning to open a new accommodation block for university students in Pamplona, with 300 rooms and an investment of €17 million. This hall of residence in Pamplona will be added to the group’s other projects in Madrid, Málaga and Valencia. Moreover, the group is analysing new opportunities.
The hall of residence in Pamplona will occupy a plot with a surface area of 8,837 m2. Construction will commence in 2019 and is expected to be completed in 2021. This accommodation is going to be constructed in the area near to the El Sadar stadium, a stone’s throw from the Universidad Pública de Navarra and its sports facilities, the Uned campus and less than 2km away from the Universidad de Navarra campus.
The new hall of residence will comprise six storeys and will have an extensive green area inside. As well as the 300 rooms, it will have several shared kitchens, spaces for study, a gym, a cinema area, a coworking space, leisure areas and a laundry (…).
