Topping out ceremony for major city residential development
Property investment consultancy Knight Knox, Qualis Developments and Broadfield Project Management have marked the topping out of Great Central – an £18m residential development in Sheffield.
Representatives from all three companies, as well as Coda Architecture, engineers Curtins and funders Maslow Capital were also in attendance to mark the occasion.
Once completed, the Kelham Island new-build will consist of 131 studios, one, two and three-bed apartments, including two commercial units.
Residents of Great Central will have access to a reception lobby, cycle storage, and a landscaped courtyard, with the addition of spacious balconies available on many apartments. Due to its excellent hilltop location, residents will also have unparalleled views over the city.
Samantha Jones, head of marketing at Knight Knox, attended the event. She said: “Great Central has been one of our most popular developments to date and was extremely well received from the moment we launched it to market.
“It’s located in an extremely exciting area, being less than a mile from Sheffield’s lively city centre and next to the vibrant Kelham Island district.”
“Great Central is a flagship development, located at the gateway to Sheffield,” said Peter Revell, director at Broadfield Project Management. “It’s one of the largest private residential developments under construction in Sheffield and we can’t wait to see the finished project, which is on track for completion during the summer of 2020.”
Managing Director at Qualis, Richard Dean, added: “Great Central is a fantastic addition to Sheffield and the Kelham Island area.
“Not only does it provide high quality accommodation, its prominent location offers a great range of amenities close to the development. We’re delighted with the excellent sales rate, which is further proof of what an excellent investment opportunity Great Central is.”
Matt Bowker from Coda Architecture said: “We have been working closely with Knight Knox and Qualis Developments on this site and are absolutely delighted to see Great Central reach this magnificent milestone.”
