SHEFFIELD - City Centre Redevelopment Thread


Recommended Posts

Be interesting to see what the build at the back of Pinstone Street looks like when it's finished. Retaining the existing facade and new build at the rear. Should imagine it's a tricky job for the contractors.

 

Did the same with Carmel House on Fargate next to Yorkshire Bank.

 

Arundel Street and Arundel Lane have some interesting converted industrial units which has tidied the area up.

This block?

 

Radisson Blu have been chosen as the Hotel that will be going there - features roof gardens, etc.

It is starting to look pretty good. Although now it’s Fargate that’s falling into disrepair. It just feels like Sheffield city center can’t draw in enough people to consistently sustain large areas of shops.

The quicker we go for the European city classical style using traditional sandstone frontages with modest open fronted shops at ground floor with apartments over each with roof gardens and/or balconies that are large enough to sit out on and grow stuff the better.

The key to revitalising town/city centre vitality is mIxed use.

Big dedicated retail Use buildings like Debenhams, John Lewis and Co-op are on their knees due to unsustainable rents, rates and now COVID...

That's a challenge for all city centres these days

Poor in my view.

 

These buildings are not of a human scale.

They make pedestrian routes dark and trap pollution.



You're going to by mightily disappointed in the future when the Sheffield skyscrapers are built

The top end looks great.

The buildings there are fantastic and just need to be constantly housing great shops (I'd prefer independent shops rather than the huge names)


It's the bottom end and Fargate that really look a bit pants currently.

 

 

There was a time when Fargate was the 3rd most expensive street in the UK to have a shop on - before all the Communists on the council killed Sheffield

Fitzalan Square is already looking way way better and will soon be a really nice place to walk through.

The tearing down of all the trees that the protestors wasted their time shouting about, was actually the right decision in the end.



wow - that looks so good it looks like an artists impression
