The 243-bed block was built on the site of the Gatecrasher nightclub, which was demolished after a fire in 2007.

The block is part of the West One cluster which also includes flats in Sellers Wheel in Arundel Street, Huttons Buildings in West Street and at Broomgrove Apartments on Broomgrove Road, as well as the West One complex in Fitzwilliam Street.

Andrea Marsden, marketing and residential manager, said: “Gatecrasher Apartments has been many years in the making so it’s fantastic to see it come to life. It’s a landmark development for Sheffield with such a historic past and has been a great project to be part of.

“The accommodation is of extremely high quality, with good sized areas and excellent fixtures and fittings, whilst still being great value for money.

“The complex is in a very exciting area of the city in the Cultural Industries Quarter, close to amenities and just a short walk to Sheffield Hallam University, making them an ideal choice for students.”

The majority of flats are in clusters of three, four and five bedrooms. There are also 90 one-bed studios, each with a kitchen.

The building also houses a gym, cinema room, lounge and internal courtyard designed to look like a record turntable.

Rent for shared flats starts at £110 per person per week, including bills, with studios available from £135 per person per week.
