A NEW business hub has been launched in the Devonshire Quarter, close to Sheffield’s city centre.

Local developer Henry Boot Developments has refurbished Devonshire Works to create three separate premises - Alpha House, Parkhead House and Carver House – each with their own refurbished entrances or reception areas and office or studio space ranging in size from 200 sq ft to 4,850 sq ft, with secure on-site parking.

Tim Bottrill, partner at letting agent Knight Frank, said: “Devonshire Works offers businesses the chance to base themselves in Sheffield’s most exciting and diverse quarter.

“As well as the secure on-site car parking, the area is also serviced by excellent transport links, with major bus routes and trams running just one road over on West Street.

“The buildings have amenities including coffee shops, restaurants, sandwich shops and bars literally on its doorstep and is a stone’s throw from live entertainment venues like City Hall as well as outdoor areas to relax like Devonshire Green.

Retail-wise shoppers can choose from a number of vintage clothing boutiques or opt for high street names. As well as independent businesses, the area has attracted national chains such as Starbucks, Costa and O2.

“The range of office space on offer at Devonshire Works means this new development should appeal to businesses of all sizes – from a smaller business that could find its creative base in Alpha House to bigger organisations with a larger workforce who will prefer accommodation in Parkhead House.”

Carver House at the northern end of the development, offers self-contained studio and office space ranging from 583 sq ft to 1,923 sq ft.

Alpha House, the central Victorian building, contains flexible office units ranging from 202 to 680 sq ft and Parkhead House provides large open plan areas running the length of the Division Street frontage, with office space from 3,140 sq ft to 4,850 sq ft.
