Park Hill flats are a truly iconic feature of the Sheffield City skyline. Originally built between 1957 and 1960, the complex is the largest listed building in Europe. With the help of Housing Board funding, this project will transform the flats into a visible symbol of the successful regeneration of Sheffield, and the wider region.
This is one of the largest mixed-use regeneration projects in the UK. It will deliver 850 Grade 2* listed apartments for sale and rent that will be cutting edge in design terms. 600 of these will be for sale and the remainder for social rent or shared ownership. All new properties will conform to Eco Homes Very Good and Building for Life Silver standard.
About £30m of public sector investment from the Housing Corporation, English Partnerships and Transform South Yorkshire is being matched by some £110m from the private sector. Physical works to the building are due to start in early 2008. The project represents one of the largest regeneration projects in the UK and is a flagship for the region.
