Broad Street Sheffield

Planning permission granted for residential development on Broad Street, Sheffield

Architecture practice Falconer Chester Hall has secured planning permission from Sheffield City Council for a residential development in the centre of Sheffield.

The 7 storey development, on Broad Street in the town centre, is for SD Towers SPV LTD and comprises of 57 apartments. The scheme steps down to 5 storeys to acknowledge the low lying buildings surrounding the site. The existing vacant public house onsite is in poor condition and will be demolished as part of the works.

Robert Brym, Associate Director at Falconer Chester Hall’s Liverpool studio said: “The design for the new development creates a strong frontage, with an animated corner.  Both will assist with re-instating the urban grid. The materials palette of red brick with differing patterns offers a rich façade and allows the building to sit within its context.

“The extensive internal and external communal facilities will allow a sense of community to develop,” added Brym, “as the site is in a sustainable location. Six car parking spaces have been provided at the rear of the site which are accessed through an undercroft, and 36 cycle spaces are incorporated for residents.”

Dawid Dowbusz, spokesperson for SD Towers SPV LTD commented: “We have seen the potential this scheme will bring to Broad Street, and we are looking forward to realising our vision of being able to provide confident, modern, housing to the area.”

“We are delighted the planning department shared our vision and we are looking forward to seeing work start onsite,” he added.
