The property comprises retail accommodation over basement, lower ground, ground and mezzanine levels with four upper floors which have been stripped to shell and core and are currently vacant.
The property occupies arguably the most prominent retailing locations on the high street as it benefits from double frontage on the High Street and Arundel Gate, two of Sheffield’s busiest destinations. Sheffield is located approximately 33 miles south of Leeds, 38 miles east of Manchester and 175 miles north of London.
Tellon secured planning permission for conversion and extension of the building to create 330 student beds above the retail. The scheme will retain the facades of this iconic building and the retail at the lower levels whilst adding an additional two upper floors. The proposed scheme will bring the upper levels of the building back to life, creating a truly unique student accommodation offer with communal facilities, all set around an external courtyard created within the centre building. The proposed scheme will ensure that the appearance and character of the building is not detracted from whilst breathing new life into the upper levels.
