A £50 million Sheffield retail development has won a regional property award.

Fox Valley in Stocksbridge, which opened in June last year, came top in the regeneration category of this year’s Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Awards for Yorkshire and the Humber.

Judges praised the development as ‘unique’. They said Fox Valley had transformed a 28-acre former steelworks site into a bustling town centre, while maintaining the area’s industrial heritage.

This includes the Central Bean Coffee shop, based on the shape of a paragon umbrella, and the Pete McKee artwork celebrating the former works.

Chairman of the judging panel Rob Hindle said: “These exemplary-built schemes are already having a positive impact on their local communities and are actively helping to ensure Yorkshire and Humber is one of the most vibrant region’s to live, work and visit.

“The teams behind them should be incredibly proud.”
