Next phase of Heart of the City II regeneration scheme moves forward with planning submission
Plans have been unveiled for the next phase of a regeneration scheme in the centre of Sheffield.
Planning applications have been submitted by Sheffield City Council this month for the next phase of the Heart of the City II scheme, including a cultural destination and a new low carbon office building.
Proposals for Cambridge Street Collective – which will sit behind Henry’s Corner and Bethel Sunday School on Cambridge Street – include a large, industrial-style hospitality and entertainment space.
The space will be wrapped by a range of shops, a bar and restaurant, as well as an upper level leisure space. The existing Bethel Chapel building will also be renovated, to potentially be transformed into a live entertainment venue.
Next to Cambridge Street Collective, a low-carbon office building is proposed for the vacant site in between Cambridge Street and Carver Street. The new premises will provide approximately 70,000 sq. ft of Grade A office space over seven floors, with a range of retail and hospitality units at the ground floor.
Cllr Mazher Iqbal, cabinet member for business and investment at Sheffield City Council, commented: “I am delighted that we have been able to progress these plans over recent months and can now submit planning applications for the next phase of Heart of the City II.
“There’s no doubt that these are unsettling times for all of us, including many city centre businesses. Whilst it is critical for us to help our businesses with immediate challenges, it is also vital that we continue to build a strong and resilient city centre that is fit for the future. The delivery of Heart of the City II is central to those efforts.”
Andrew Davison, project director at developer Queensberry, added: “The plans for Block H epitomise our ambition to create places with character and personality that will bring something entirely unique to Sheffield city centre.
“Cambridge Street Collective promises to become a destination that both locals and visitors will cherish and enjoy, and we are very excited about bringing this vision to life.”
