The ’Student Residence Base Camp’ project will provide a mix of shops, restaurants, a hotel and students’ apartments that will enliven the Kampstraße in Dortmund and enhance the ’Platz von Leeds’. It will create more residential accommodation in the inner city and improve the ’ Hohe Luft’ thoroughfare. The ground floor of the new 7-storey building will be used for restaurants, retail outlets, and a hotel and serve as the entrance/reception area of the students’ residence. The 6 upper floors will contain around 430 apartments grouped around 3 courtyards. Each room will have a private bathroom and will have either a small private kitchen or a communal kitchen shared by 8-12 units.
