An opportunity to partner with Sheffield Hallam University to create a new gateway between Sheffield’s major transport hub and the thriving city heart of Sheffield – reshaping the city for the twenty-first century and beyond. The Sheffield City Gateway project will combine high specification commercial, retail, and academic space including a hotel and public square and a new location for Sheffield business school and Sheffield Hallam University social sciences complex.
The project will transform the southern entrance to the city centre and provide a unique integration of commercial and university development with mutual benefits. It will also create an iconic addition to the Sheffield city skyline. The project, which will represent approximately £300m of investment in total depending on the full design, may be structured in many ways. These might include direct investment or joint venture with the university, which is the landowner and able to commit up to £100m of estate to the project. Significant commercial return is realisable from the development.
As a partner, Sheffield Hallam University will invest prime site land and buildings up to £100m to ensure the size, scale and future success of the development.
