S Harrison acquired Osborne House in 2018, which will become part of the Berlin-based MEININGER hotel chain. The hotel will have 549 beds in a mix of rooms, including classic doubles and private multiple-bed rooms. It will also have a taxi drop-off area, disabled parking, and a secure cycle store. The developer has also made investments in Edinburgh, including a boutique hotel for Malmaison in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town and secured planning permission for two purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) schemes. S Harrison also submitted proposals for a residential-led development at Ocean Point 2 in Leith for planning approval. In York, the company’s projects include Escrick Business Park, Grays Wharf, Groves Chapel, Hampton by Hilton, Hotel Indigo, Hunter House, Merchant Exchange, Navigation Road, Percy’s Place, Samuel Tuke Apartments, Stanley Harrison House, plus projects in James Street and Walmgate and Tedder Road. Recently, the Rate Your Landlord scheme saw students vote S Harrison as best purpose-built accommodation provider in Leeds for its Blenheim Point scheme. The scheme offers 180 en-suite bedrooms over seven floors in 29 cluster apartments, designed specifically for overseas and postgraduate students, with extensive communal facilities. The University of Leeds signed a 25-year lease on it in 2018.
