Build-to-rent specialist Platform_ is developing the 5-14 storey multi-block scheme at Sylvester Street on a site that has been vacant for the past 10 years and is currently used as a temporary car park.
It will also offer communal dining facilities, residents’ lounge, gym, bike club, alongside private and public amenity including roof terraces.
TateHindle designed the brick envelope scheme with Arup acting as structural and M&E consultant.
Jean-Marc Vandevivere, chief executive at PLATFORM_ said: ’This is a huge opportunity to raise the bar for city-centre living in Sheffield.
“We’re delivering purpose-built rental housing that gives residents a quality home with professional service and additional on-site amenities – all of which are currently lacking in the traditional private rented sector – as well as contributing to the revitalisation of the city centre.’
Work is expected to start on site early next year.
