Plans for a major £4 million apartment scheme in Sheffield are to be submitted to the council.

Developers are expected to submit a planning application to Sheffield Council this week for the development in Shalesmoor.

If approved, they intend to transform a former industrial site between Henry Street and Roscoe Road into a complex with 54 studio apartments and duplex penthouse apartments.

The Palatine Gardens project – named after a former Victorian pub in the area – is being designed by award winning city practice Coda Studios on behalf of Crossbow Ventures.

Coda Managing Director David Cross said: “Coda is leading the way in the regeneration of this important area just on the edge of the city centre.

“This represents a £4.2 million investment for the city and emphasises once again just how committed we are to bringing new life to this previously neglected area of Sheffield.

“Already we have created exciting developments at Dunfields, Kelham Island and at Bell’s Court, which is just a short distance away, and our back-to back housing project - just a couple of streets from this new site - is one of the most talked about and anticipated housing schemes on the year.

“And of course our flagship Krynkl site is scheduled for completion before the end of the summer and is destined to raise the profile of Shalesmoor in a way this area has not known for many decades.

“All this has been made possible thanks to the continued support of Sheffield City Council, which recognises the value of regeneration as the key to this important part of the city’s future success.”

If the council approve the project, work is expected to begin at the start of 2017, with completion scheduled for March 2018.
