Year-long Lincoln road closure begins for student digs development

A section of Park Street in Lincoln city centre is closed from today for over a year.

The road was closed off ahead of work to build a new £20 million luxury student living development.

Work will begin on the site to build 138 student flats, plus a gym, sauna and cinema.

As reported previously, IconInc is building the accommodation building on Mint Lane, in the former Sokes coffee company warehouses.

Lane closures and parking bay suspensions will be in place for 80 weeks from Monday, January 8, 2018.

A section of Park Street will be closed to traffic for over a year.

Park Street will be closed between the junction of Mint Lane and Beaumont Fee.

Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Mint Lane will remain open, but parking bays have been closed for the duration of the works.

The development will comprise 138 luxury student flats on the site, which was also formerly occupied by a school building and a town hall.

It will also include a steam room, sauna, home cinema, gym, pantry with grab-and-go breakfast and a 24-hour concierge.

Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director of IconInc, said previously: “We would like to thank residents and local businesses for their patience during this time and we will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.”
