Nav Ahmed, Managing Director of Parklane Properties said: Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director of Parklane Properties, said: “It’s 7 star student accommodation and we believe there’s nothing like this in the country.
“IconInc redefines what it means to ‘live like a student’ and promotes ‘living like an icon’. Leeds has three different universities, so there has always been huge demand for student housing in the city, with a particular demand in recent years for a superior standard of accommodation, noticeable amongst international students.

One of the first tennants will be Aru Patel, who was crowned Leeds Student Icon 2015 in a competition voted for by Leeds residents earlier this year. He has been awarded a free year’s tenancy in a luxury apartment at The Edge.
