Sheffield, the former Yorkshire steel-making city, has a population of 550,000. Once famous for it's cutlery, it has seen a great deal of redevelopment since those halcyon days, much of it built on the focus that the two large universities in the city bring. In Yorkshire it's status is diminishing as Leeds exerts greater gravitational pull.
Manufacturing today has become high tech and the Advanced Manufacturing Park, built in the Waverley area of Rotherham nearby, is home to world-class research and manufacturing organisations, such as; the University of Sheffield's AMRC with Boeing; Rolls Royce; Castings Technology International (Cti); Dormer Tools, Sandvik Coromant, TWI’s Yorkshire Technology Centre and the new Nuclear AMRC.
Sheffield Office Property
Office space in Sheffield is characterised by a shortage of Grade A space and an excess supply of vacant secondary stock. As a result rents are low , prime space is at £20psf but secondary space is half of this figure. Sheffield offers a variety of key office developments including:
- St Pauls Place – a high quality professional environment in the Heart of the City.
- The Square – a key mixed use site city centre gateway position.
- Sheffield Digital Campus – designed specifically for the creative and digital industries, where some rents have reached £20psf.
Sheffield Retail Property
Sheffield has an out of town retail super star in the Meadowhall centre. This complex contains 1.5 million sq ft of floor space and 280 stores, which receive 25 million visitors each year. But Sheffield city centre had a retail nightmare caused by the abandonment of two major retail schemes, Hammerson’s retail quarter, Sevenstone, and The Moor a mixed retail and residential scheme. The Moor scheme has now started, but with two other much bigger schemes on it's plate Hammerson has probably lost interest in this one in favour of Leeds and Croydon.
