We all went through it, and for the people that still are going through it, we feel for you.

Trying to nab student accommodation that is close to your college and is a good price is pretty hard to find.

However, Cork property owner Michael O'Flynn has just bought a site which was previously owned by NAMA and CIE, and is planning on turning it into nearly 1,000 student beds.

According to The Irish Times, the two apartment blocks will comprise of seven stories, with retail space at the ground level. It will feature a variation of sleeping arrangements, with clusters of three and eight bedroom spaces as well as twin and single study areas.

The site is right across from the Luas at The Point, and is easily accessible. It is claimed that the 2.3 acre site was sold for more than €20 million.
