UK: York-based developer Grantside has bought prominent sites in Sheffield as a part of its strategy to create sustainable living and working spaces across the UK.

Grantside, which was founded in 1993 but recently relaunched with a focus on sustainability and integrity, has bought prominent sites in Sheffield. It has plans to launch new projects in York this year, and is involved in other joint venture sustainable regeneration opportunities across the UK.

The Sheffield plans are for a new concept at the Bowling Green Street site, which would see small commercial spaces alongside shared facilities, open courtyards and private apartments. The living, working and leisure space will be curated to provide a mixed-use space.

The Norfolk Street site, in the city centre, aims to assist Sheffield City Council meet its carbon-neutral targets by creating modern, Grade-A office spaces. The development will incorporate modern features such as large windows, sustainability features and roof terraces with views of nearby listed buildings and the Peace Gardens. 

The two projects are the first in a new era for Grantside, after CEO Steve Davis’ personal journey in recent years led him to creating low and zero carbon places to live and work in towns and cities across the UK.

Davis said: “Both these sites can help Sheffield continue its progress as a forward thinking and ambitious city and will include features to ensure they are successful in the post-Covid world. There is still a place for modern offices to encourage collaborative and creative working from businesses and our Bowling Green Street project will offer a new concept in living and working, which we feel there is an appetite for in a modern, ambitious city such as Sheffield.”
