Manchester based developer, Panacea Property Development’s plans for the Penultimate phase of its Well Meadow regeneration development just off Netherthorpe Road, close to the Well Meadow Conservation Area in Sheffield city centre have been approved.
Two buildings will deliver 284 residential apartments consisting of 133 two bedroom, 139 one bedroom, and 12 studios. The development has been designed specifically for the build to rent (BTR) market.
Provision of a high quality private apartment rental offer in this location will complement the wider regeneration of the area and help to attract and retain the skilled workers needed in a modern city economy.
Occupiers of the completed development will enjoy the key benefits of this strategic location. They will be within walking distance of city centre jobs, restaurants, bars and other amenities. The site is immediately adjacent to Netherthorpe tram stop and is very close to the University of Sheffield as well as the city’s main hospitals.
Phase I of the mixed-use development was delivered in September 2016 in joint venture with Worthington Properties, and provided over 305 student accommodation units which are now fully occupied.
Gareth Riddell, Managing Director of Panacea Property Development said:
“This approval offers us the opportunity to deliver the Penultimate phase of this project. Panacea has worked closely with Sheffield City Council for more than two years to ensure that our plans for this next phase of development provide excellent design standards.
“The scheme we’ve now received approval for achieves the Council’s aspirations for the delivery of institutionally backed build to rent accommodation within this important regeneration area.”
Award winning architects MCAU and Leach Rhodes Walker designed the scheme. Zerum is engaged as planning consultant and project manager. Curtins is the engineer.
