Plans for mixed-use Sheffield development approved

Mace has received planning permission from Sheffield City Council to build a mixed-use residential and student development in the centre of Sheffield.

The residential element includes 247 new homes consisting of studio, one- and two-bed flats.

The student scheme will comprise studios, cluster flats and townhouses creating 658 student beds.

The proposed development – which is close to the University of Sheffield main campus – will make the Grade II-listed cementation furnace on the site the focal point.

The scheme has been designed by Jefferson Sheard Architects, with Mace being advised on planning by CBRE.

David Grover, chief operating officer for development at Mace, said: “Sheffield’s industrial heritage is a key part of its history, and the iconic cementation furnace on this site is a fantastic example of how important it is to preserve that legacy.

“I’m pleased that the council has recognised the potential of this scheme, and the importance of bringing forward much-needed, high-quality homes and modern, attractive student accommodation for Sheffield city centre.”
