The revitalisation of the former economic powerhouse Attercliffe is taking further significant steps thanks to the new plans.
A series of developments at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park are set to provide a £60m boost to the Attercliffe area of the city.
Attercliffe, which is home to much of Sheffield’s engineering past, is set for a quadruple boost with the announcement of schemes including
a major mixed-use development proposed for the nearby Adelphi square site, comprising bars, restaurants, shops, housing, a themed meeting venue, workspace and a branded hotel.
There are also plans for the redevelopment and expansion of the Banners building, now home to law firm Wosskow Brown, on Attercliffe Road as well as a new 100-bedroom hotel created by The English Institute of Sport Sheffield. The hotel will be centred on the needs of athletes and para-athletes and support staff who use the facilities at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, helping to attract more Olympic and Paralympic squads to the city.
Work will also start in December on an improved Community Stadium, currently used by Sheffield Eagles Rugby League Club and Sheffield United Women Football Club.
“We are seeing the regeneration and redevelopment of Attercliffe as a result of the expansion of Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park,” said the Rt. Hon. Richard Caborn, project lead for Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. “This truly is the return of Attercliffe delivering an exciting future for Sheffield and the immediate community.”
A number of buildings have been developed at the Olympic Legacy Park in the last few years, including the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, National Centre of Excellence for Food Engineering, Oasis Academy School and University Technical College, joining established facilities such as the English Institute of Sport Sheffield, iceSheffield and FlyDSA Arena.
High profile briefings are underway for the establishment of The Centre for Child Health Technology which will co-locate at the park.
Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is being developed by Legacy Park Ltd, a partnership between Sheffield City Council, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield City Trust, South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw Integrated Care System and Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network.
