Ventana House on Sheffield Digital Campus has been fully let.

Three deals over the last two months have completed the take up of space in the 50,000 sq ft prime office development between the city centre and the railway station, led by Scarborough Development Group and GMI Property Company.

The lettings between February and April to Sky, leading international recruitment consultant Michael Page and Coal Pension Trustees Services mean the development has brought nearly 600 new jobs to Sheffield.

Sky alone is creating 500 jobs by opening a 23,571 sq ft customer service centre within the building. Michael Page is taking 2,932 sq ft; and 5,779 sq ft has been let to Coal Pension Trustees Services.

They join existing tenant, law firm Kennedys, which opened a 17,000 sq ft office in July last year.

GMI Property’s managing director, James Poskitt, said: “Securing tenants of this standing is a mark of the quality of the buildings and the location of Sheffield Digital Campus.

“It reflects well on the City as a whole.”

Mark Jackson, managing director of Scarborough Development Group, added: “This shows the great benefit in public-private partnerships delivering high quality office space in strong regional locations to draw inward investment and foster economic growth.”

So far a total of 100,000sq ft of space has been developed on the digital campus, split equally between Ventana House and Electric Works. A further 150,000 sq ft remains to be developed in Phase 1.
