An application was put forward by Plymouth Grove Residential Investment Ltd to convert a grade 2 listed building into an accommodation for medical students. It is located on the northern side of Upper park road in High Elms, which is only a 15-minute walk to numerous teaching hospitals and healthcare facilities. It is also 2 miles south of Manchester city centre, in close proximity to Manchester University and Manchester Metropolitan University campuses.

The process of developing the listed building looks forward to retaining its existing features, while the adjacent building will be destructed and substituted with a modern student accommodation residence. Fletcher-Rae, the architect behind the scheme, stated that the developments of Manchester University campuses attract more students and also it is a result of the increasing demand for accommodation in the established student area.

It is expected that the student accommodation will include 115 studio apartments, along with communal lounges, and car and bike parking spaces. It will be purposely built to meet medical students' needs. The city of Manchester has a large university student population; with 14 universities and colleges, it is estimated that Manchester has over 100,000 active students at university or college level.
