Regeneration company Urban Splash and partners Places for People have won three national awards for the Park Hill development in Sheffield at the Planning and Placemaking Awards.

These were for Best Housing Scheme (more than 500 homes), Best Regeneration, and Regional Award for Northern England.

Managing director at Urban Splash, Simon Gawthorpe said; “We are obviously absolutely delighted with these awards.

“They are a result of great partnership and vision, that also includes the vital support of the public sector.

“All of us our committed to completing the massive Park Hill project so we can supply mixed tenure housing, work spaces and leisure for the residents and local community.

“This is also recognition for the growing attraction to living in the city centre, something Sheffield should be proud of.”

Mary Parsons, group director of Placemaking and Regeneration at Places for People, one of the largest property and leisure management, development and regeneration companies operating across the UK, said: “It has been a privilege for Places for People to work with Urban Splash and all of our partners on this truly amazing regeneration project.

“As we look ahead to the future phases, winning these awards is a great accolade to have”. 

Phase I of Park Hill has seen award winning Urban Splash, Places for People and Great Places, create 260 apartments and ten contemporary workspaces.

There are now only ten apartments left to sell and ten to rent with only two commercial units remaining.

Work will start on the next phase following planning permissions.

Park Hill is also attracting visitors as the S1 Artspace exhibition programme at the Scottish Queen is currently hosting the high profile Brutalist Playground by Turner Prize winning architecture collective Assemble and artist Simon Terrill.

Urban Splash has received over 350 awards to date for its commitment to architecture, design, regeneration and business success.
