New developers hope to push forward a city centre scheme that had stalled during the recession.
Acreplan Sylvester Street Developments Ltd hopes to revive a proposal for a block of flats in the heart of Sheffield’s cultural industries quarter.
The firm has applied to make changes to a plan originally submitted by Romon Developments for a building up to six storeys high on the site of the former Bernard Works in Sylvester Street.
Next door, City Estates is working on Alsop Fields, a major refurbishment of old factories and construction of new buildings between Sidney Street and Matilda Street.
Acreplan still wants to build 102 apartments, but says it needs to ‘improve’ the mix between commercial space and residential as the previous layout ‘is not seen as viable due to the collapse in investment value of this commercial space as configured’.
The development would have a riverside walk.
