Crossbow finishes multi-million-pound Sheffield apartment complex

Sheffield property company Crossbow Ventures has completed work on its seventh major Sheffield residential development.

The £6.5m project on the site of the former Birtin Works at Henry Street in Shalesmoor has seen the construction of 63 one-bedroom apartments, designed by the team at Sheffield practice CODA Architects, with Whitshaw Commercial as the principal contractors.

The project follows the success of the neighbouring Palatine Gardens project, Crossbow Ventures’ £10m development of 101 studio apartments and duplex penthouse apartments on former commercial and light industrial land between Henry Street and Roscoe Road at Shalesmoor.

Director David Cross said: “We are pleased to be able to say that Birtin Works has actually completed two months ahead of schedule and that every unit has been sold by our agents Knight Knox.

“We are delighted with the finished product, which is our fourth development in the Henry Street area and a major addition to the Shalesmoor area.

“A £6.5m investment for the city on this scale emphasises once again just how committed we are to bringing new life to this previously neglected area of the city.

“And with its location so close to the Shalesmoor tram stop, Kelham Island and the city centre, we are confident that this will prove as popular as our six previous developments in the area.”

Other successful projects for Crossbow and CODA in the area include Dunfields at Kelham Island and the nearby Bell’s Court.

Cross added: “All this has been made possible thanks to the continued support of Sheffield City Council, which recognises the value of regeneration as the key to this important part of the city’s future success.

“And once again this is an outstanding example of what can happen when local companies come together to create something of lasting benefit for the city.”
