Go ahead given for next phase at landmark regeneration project

Consent has been secured for the next phase of works at Park Hill, Sheffield, which will comprise another 125 apartments at the prominent regeneration site.

Urban Splash and Places for People, the joint development partners at the scheme, have secured the planning approval, which will also feature workspaces and public realm.

The Grade II Listed structure has undergone extensive redevelopment over the last decade, a period in which the joint venture partners have overseen the creation of 455 new homes, accommodation for 356 students, more than 50,000 sq ft of workspace, and extensive landscaping and green spaces for residents.

Of the 125 apartments planned for the fourth phase of the project, 20% will be affordable.

This stage has been designed by the architect and designer of Park Hill’s second phase – Mikhail Riches.

As well as the homes, there will be new public realm, electric vehicle charging points, a car club and bike storage.

Steve Thomas, development manager at Park Hill, said: “We are excited to take forward our vision for this next stage of Park Hill.

“This building is culturally and architecturally significant for Sheffield, and for a long time now we have committed to bringing it back to life, nurturing a new community and giving the city a new place in which to live, work and play.

“Landscaping and public realm have been key to that, and this planning approval is the culmination of engagement and listening to residents over the summer, taking on board their desires and ensuring that we evolved our plans to give the community what it needs.”

The new phase will also include 4,700 sq ft of ground floor commercial space for businesses looking to join those already operating out of Park Hill.

Thomas added: “It’s great to see residents and businesses alike choosing to call Park Hill their home.

“This new commercial space will be some of the last at the building, giving local companies a final chance to join our budding ecosystem, creating jobs and new opportunities in this thriving part of town.”

Urban Splash and Places for People will begin construction on the new phase of works early in 2024.
