The Government’s provisional “roadmap” out of lockdown states that outdoor hospitality venues will be able to welcome customers from April 12.

Marc Brough, Managing Director at Cubo, said: “Cubo offers an exciting, experience-led working environment that will not only attract but retain Sheffield’s young entrepreneurs and graduate talent as well as large corporate companies.

"Alto, the rooftop sky-bar, will become a popular destination, making Cubo an attractive place to set up a business and work, as well as a vibrant place to socialise and spend leisure time.”

Cubo is a new style of serviced offices focused on the “needs of the modern worker” with an emphasis on co-working.

A spokesperson for the development said Cubo will provide “many additional benefits” to their tenants, including meeting rooms, phone booths, printing stations and free beverages such as tea, coffee, beer and prosecco.

The development is part of a the £480m Heart of the City II scheme being bankrolled by Sheffield City Council that includes plans to extend the Peace Gardens, creating a square for alfresco dining, and the redevelopment of Gaumont Building in Barker’s Pool.
