Residential Development To Create 230 Jobs In Sheffield

A new residential development in the city centre is poised to create 230 new jobs in the student city of Sheffield.

The city centre build-to-rent regeneration development next to the Grosvenor Casino on the junction between Farm Road and Queens Road will create around 200 temporary construction jobs in the building phase.

There will also be a further 30 permanent positions to be filled in Sheffield once the housing project completes.

Godwin Developments are heading the one-acre accommodation project which aims to build 300 upmarket apartments in a desirable area of Sheffield city centre.

Announcing the scheme, Godwin Developments’s group development director, Stuart Pratt, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured this highly desirable site, situated in the Sheaf Gardens area in Sheffield. It comes just two weeks after we announced plans for another significant project, currently under way in Stafford, that will see the construction of over 300 residential BTR homes in the Midlands.”

“While mindful of the present circumstances, as a business we continue to remain focused on the future and plan for the rebound in our industry and the country. We look forward to working closely with local planners, the community and the city council to ensure this scheme provides the best possible opportunities for Sheffield,” added Mr Pratt.

Ben Acheson, a partner at law firm Irwin Mitchell which assisted in purchasing the location for the developers, also commented, saying: “We are delighted to have supported Godwin Developments in acquiring the site at Farm Road, Sheffield. These are obviously difficult economic times, but this transaction shows there is still a market for quality assets, and it is great to see Godwin Developments showing the confidence to progress with the acquisition. A real good news story in the current climate.”
