About The Location

Bath Lane is a large and exciting residential complex, on a landmark location at the gateway to Leicester’s Waterside. The Waterside is an area targeted for substantial regeneration, this site being an important link in the urban design.


The proposal consists of three towers and creates over 400 homes with ancillary accommodation and retail units. The scheme sits on a car parking plinth, with landscaped courtyard gardens above between the towers, which look over the waterside. A set-back from the water creates a public towpath with continuous boat moorings along the waterfront. The building itself employs an ordered and robust design language, with a woven layering of materials and legible composition.


Newly opened in Sept 2016, Merlin Heights offers so much, including its Sky Lounge complete with roof-top views, coffee area and games room. This bespoke and highly-stylish student accommodation includes en-suite rooms in shared apartments and en-suite studios. Quality fixtures and seriously stylish interiors are on display everywhere. Take in the roomy work area, small double bed, bags of storage and en-suite shower room, with shared living in the kitchen and lounging space. Go for a studio and the well-equipped kitchen area, with breakfast bar, keeps sharing to a minimum, unless you come as a couple!


With fantastic social spaces inside and out and the fact that you’re so well placed for the distractions of the city, all that’s left to do is decide what to do first. A ten-minute stroll takes you to the De Montfort University, and the University of Leicester and Leicester College are an easy walk or bus ride away.
