 If you’ve popped into Sheffield City Centre recently, you’ll probably have noticed that change is afoot. The development ‘Heart of the City II’ is in full swing and will transform the area around Pinstone Street into an exciting, multi-use destination offering a mix of retail, leisure, office and residential spaces. Not only
will the scheme transform a part of the city which has long required investment, it will also act as a catalyst for further investment and transformation of the city centre.
Banking giant HSBC have already moved into their new premises on the site of the old Grosvenor Hotel and Swedish fashion brands Monki and Weekday are planning stores in the same building, bringing something
entirely new to the City Centre. Sheffield will be the first store in Yorkshire for Monki and Weekday will be its first store outside London. Further retailers, cafes and bars are expected to be moving into the premises shortly.
Work now focuses on Burgess House which will provide retail units, residential apartments and prime office space fronting onto Pinstone Street and Charles Street.
Work has already begun on demolishing some of the buildings
in the area and the complex task of propping up the original Victorian façade of the former Laycock House on Pinstone Street, which will form
a key design feature of the new development.
Redbrik is delighted to be involved in the project and, working closely with the council's strategic development partner Queensberry, will be the
sole agent for the sale of the 52 high specification apartments available in Burgess House.
Paul Sargent, Chief Executive Queensberry, said; “We consulted several different agents to find the best fit for this key project and we felt that Redbrik offered us a fresh approach with honest advice, a creative vision and good value
for money. They are very much on board with our vision for a high- quality residential offer aimed at owner occupiers and we are looking forward to working with the Redbrik team.”
