£19m Steel City project starts

The multi-million pound Steel City scheme, for client Future Generation, will deliver 324 rooms in the city’s St Vincent’s Quarter.

Part of the scheme includes the refurbishment of Grade II Listed ‘little mesters’ former metals trades workshops, which date back to 1833.

There will be a selection of en-suite rooms, studios and one and two bedroom duplex apartments. Other facilities will include reception, laundry, security office, cinema room and rooftop terrace with café bar.

Designed by Sheffield based Axis Architecture, the buildings will be finished mainly in brick with natural slate pitched roofs.

The new development is situated on Hollis Croft close to the University of Sheffield’s School of Engineering.
