Redvers House, a landmark 14-storey office block in central Sheffield, is up for sale with a £7 million price tag.

The property on Union Street in the heart of the city close to St. Paul’s Place includes a three-storey retail unit let to Currys for the next five years with an 11 storey office tower above.

The offices are currently occupied by Sheffield City Council who are intending to vacate by the end of this year.

Martin Crosthwaite of Crosthwaite Commercial, who is acting on behalf of LPA Receivers as joint agents with London based Pyle Owen, said the building could remain as offices or be converted to flats.

He added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to acquire a landmark building in the centre of Sheffield with huge potential.

“We are already experiencing a high level of demand from investors and developers, many of whom are based outside Sheffield.

“It is encouraging that so much confidence is being shown in the city by external investors. Whether the building will remain in office use or be converted to residential under the new permitted development rights remains to be seen but we are encouraged by the early interest received.”

Redvers House was built in 1971 by the construction firm Newman Doncaster Associates. It had copper glass which changed to green in a £7m refurbishment in 2005.
