Plans submitted for £4m redevelopment of ‘distinctive’ restaurant site

A planning application has been submitted for the £4m redevelopment of a Grade-II listed site in Sheffield.

The site, which sits just across from the Royal Hallamshire Hospital on Glossop Road, used to house the popular Hanrahan’s bar and restaurant.

Property developer Primesite UK is converting the premises into 27 new apartments, which are set to be completed in 2020.

Architects Cartwright Pickard and CODA Planning are also working with Primesite UK on the project.

Scott Hinchliffe, director of Primesite UK, said: “It’s a shame that such a distinctive building has been unoccupied for so long, so I’m obviously delighted we’ve been able to acquire the buildings and get this once in a lifetime opportunity to repurpose these iconic buildings into a scheme that is really special.

“The location and configuration as well as the impact of structural issues means the building is no longer suitable for a restaurant. Our architects have come up with an exciting scheme of one, two and three bed apartments that reuses the majority of the building’s remaining internal structures, with the dramatic entrance and new build block to complement the heritage of the historic façade and service these high spec / high tech apartments in this amazing location.

‘’We expect there to be strong early interest in this scheme. The flexibility our team have created will be of interest to owner occupiers, first time buyers and landlords alike, given the proximity to the city centre, hospitals, universities and parks and countryside’’

Residential Sales agent Spencer will be working with Primesite during the construction phase.
