Should the development project get approval, the new building will be located in the heart of Sheffield’s vibrant city centre
The Sheffield City Council has received a brand new proposal for a project featuring an impressive seven-storey student accommodation building. The application was submitted on behalf of Whirlow Capital Investment by a firm called Yeme Architects for the Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) to be built on Hodgson Street. The firm is seeking planning permission in order to demolish the current residential buildings on site to begin construction.
This Sheffield student residence will offer a total of 77 bedrooms for students, most of which will be self-contained studios. There will be two duplexes within the building as well. Modern communal facilities are expected within the new building to offer the best student life for residents, including study zones, a games area, on-site parking for 7 cars, bike storage area, and rooftop landscaping.
A document presented with the scheme mentioned that "The resulting development should increase the urban scale and density of the area, and create something elegant, layered, stimulating and timeless — something that will 'sit' within the inherently diverse and eclectic mix of properties that represent the character of the area.”
