Sheffield residential development nears completion
The new Summerfield Street residential development in Sheffield will soon be completed after Abode Hallam Limited commissioned Winvic to carry out construction of the £25M build-to-rent scheme back in January.
At the start of construction, Winvic’s Director for Multiroom, Mark Jones stated: “Our team and I have been working with the client, fund and design team over the last year, developing the design and engineering value into the scheme.
“We are delighted to have secured this project, which is due to commence on site this month for delivery in August 2019, and I’m very much looking forward to building a lasting relationship with Abode Hallam and Grainger.”
The development is situated to the west of Sheffield’s city centre and is a short distance from both the University of Sheffield and the Sheffield Hallam University campuses, with funding for the project having come from the country’s biggest residential landlord, Grainger plc.
Jason Sobey, from Abode Hallam, added: “We are pleased to be developing this project which is addressing a shortfall in living space around Sheffield city centre. Winvic is making strides and winning awards in the multi-room sector across the country so this delivery partnership with them is an exciting one.”
The development itself will contain 237 apartments, 56 of which will be studios, 81 will be one-bedrooms, and 100 will be two-bedrooms, as well as spaces for retailers, cafés, restaurants, and under-croft parking.
The PRS Acquisitions Director at Grainger plc, Ed Ellerington stated: “We believe the creation of 237 high quality homes, built specifically for the rental market will be significant for Sheffield’s city centre housing needs and regeneration, and we’re delighted to have Winvic and Abode Hallam’s experience on board to deliver this scheme.”
Furthermore, the development will provide regeneration to an area that has been unoccupied for several years after Winvic, partnered with Acanthus WSM Architects and Curtins’ engineering consults, underwent a 103 week programme of delivery.
Construction activity was designed with the existence of a neighbouring watercourse, residential buildings, and businesses kept in mind.
