Mace's mixed use development plans for Sheffield approved

Mace’s plans for a mixed-use residential and student development on Hoyle Street in the centre of Sheffield have been approved by Sheffield City Council. 

The plans were approved by the Planning Committee on the afternoon of Tuesday 14 August. 

The proposed development will bring a neglected part of Sheffield’s industrial heritage to the fore, making the iconic Grade II listed cementation furnace on the site the focal point of the development.

The residential element of the project includes 247  new homes, made up of studios, one bed and two bed flats all set around a landscaped courtyard. The student scheme will consist of 658 student beds, comprising studios, cluster flats and townhouses, which also benefit from dedicated, private open space. 

It has been designed by Jefferson Sheard Architects, working out of their Sheffield office, and CBRE has advised Mace on planning. 

The site is close to the University of Sheffield main campus, in walking distance to the City Centre and has the amenities of Kelham Island on its doorstep.

David Grover, Mace’s Chief Operating Officer for Development, said: 

“Sheffield’s industrial heritage is a key part of its history, and the iconic cementation furnace on this site is a fantastic example of how important it is to preserve that legacy. I’m pleased that the Council has recognised the potential of this scheme, and the importance of bringing forward much-needed high quality homes and modern, attractive student accommodation for Sheffield City Centre.”
