First look at new £40m Sheffield skyscraper 'The Meridian’ – with spectacular sky garden for upmarket flats
The architects behind plans for upmarket flats in an unsung section of Sheffield have unveiled images of a spectacular ‘sky garden’.
Sheffield-based Bond Bryan designed The Meridian to have three adjoining towers, of 23, 17 and 10 floors. The tenth floor tower will have a roof garden with spectacular views over the city centre.
A planning application has been submitted for the development of 336 flats on a wedge-shaped plot between Queens and Farm roads and backing on to Grosvenor Casino.
It will be targeted at long-term renters and will also have a concierge reception, residents’ lounge and gym.
Developer Godwin Developments hopes it will play a part in Sheffield City Council’s £1.5bn plan to regenerate the Sheaf Valley. The area around Granville Square is earmarked for housing.
The 1.1-acre brownfield site has been vacant for many years but is hidden behind a long stone wall.
Bond Bryan was supported by fellow Sheffield Property Association members Urbana Town Planning and RLB.
