Dozens more apartments are planned for Sheffield’s hottest residential area – Kelham Island
A total of 122 apartments and one commercial unit in a six-storey block could be built along Shalesmoor on Kelham Island.
The site, which overlooks the inner dual carriageway, was on the market for £1.4million and was bought by RSSabkha Construction and Developments Ltd in December.
The misery of Sheffield train passengers as the biggest strike in a generation begins…
The company is about to complete a four-storey block of 90 rear apartments and commercial units on Cotton Mill Row.
Number 180 Shalesmoor was originally a steel works before being used for clothing distribution and later a body shop, clutch centre, car hire and fishing tackle sales.
The design was carried out by CODA Architecture of Sheffield.
Managing Director Matt Bowker said: “We have worked on many developments on Kelham Island and around Shalesmoor and Neepsend and are confident that 180 Shalesmoor will prove as successful as all of our previous projects.
“CODA Studios is, of course, based on Kelham Island and we have been passionate supporters of the regeneration of this historic part of Sheffield for many years now.”
Nearby, developer Citu is building its Kelham Central housing estate which has seen buildings rise either side of the famous Kelham Island Tavern.
And the area’s oldest buildings – a row of 1804 cottages on Alma Street – are set to be transformed into 11 homes.
