Parklane Group has submitted planning for its Nursery Street Build to Rent development in the Wicker area of Sheffield city centre. The proposed development will include 102 Build to Rent homes in a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

Amenities will include coworking and meeting spaces, a first-floor garden terrace with views over the River Don, a fully equipped gym, private dining room and a fully equipped podcasting studio.

“This is a high-quality development in what we believe is an increasingly attractive area of Sheffield. This particular site has been awaiting redevelopment for something like 20 years now and we see this project as very much at the heart of the Wicker Riverside area.

“Following the regeneration of Kelham Island and Neepsend, the Wicker Riverside is the logical next step in the redevelopment of this part of the city centre. We feel the success of this application will be a key towards unlocking the next phase of vital regeneration.”

Designed by Sheffield-based CODA Architecture, the design for the Nursery Street scheme takes inspiration from the local heritage architecture, which typically features red brick and horizontal stone banding.

CODA Architecture has worked closely with Parklane, John Mackie from Mackie Project Consultants Ltd, Urbana, Eastwood Consulting Engineers and JCP Consulting Engineers Ltd, in consultation with Sheffield City Council to develop the design of the building.

The Nursery Street Build to Rent development aims to contribute to the Wicker Riverside neighbourhood, supporting the creation of a vibrant community.

“Our partnership with CODA Architecture ensures that the development not only meets the highest standards of design and functionality, but also harmonises with Sheffield’s cultural and historical landscape.

“By focusing on the Wicker area, Parklane Group aims to contribute significantly to the neighbourhood’s renewal, creating a vibrant community hub that attracts residents and visitors alike. The Nursery Street scheme is envisioned as a catalyst for further development, bringing new life and energy to this key part of Sheffield.”
