Accommodation moves ahead in Sheffield’s Cultural Quarter
PLANNING has been awarded for the second of two student residence-led mixed use schemes in Sheffield’s Cultural Industries Quarter.
The £20m privately-funded scheme is split over two sites on either side of Sidney Street, regenerating a large post-industrial site on the southern fringe of Sheffield city centre. Site A, the northern site, will include a six-storey block of 23 student flats housing 103 students; a five-storey block of 21 private apartments, and 21 town houses. There will also be a ground floor unit to be used as either a cafe or an office, and a central courtyard amenity space.
On Site B in the south, flats for 52 students will be built on the site of a former nightclub, and 42 two-bed private apartments built on the former Speedwell Works. Albert Works will be retained and converted to create offices, a micro-brewery, a riverside walk and a glass house or winter garden.
It is anticipated that in addition to providing investment and opportunities for local businesses the new uses will animate the area 24 hours a day, providing new amenities for residents, and reducing anti-social behaviour. The scheme is due for completion in time for the 2013 academic intake.
The scheme has been designed by Cartwright Pickard Architects for Elmsdale Estates.
