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’.

Wednesday, 17th March 2021, 8:54 am

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.

The 10th floor would have a 'sky garden' overlooking Queens Road.
