Sheffield apartment scheme to go ahead

Sheffield apartment scheme to go ahead

Planning permission for the expansion of a residential property scheme in Sheffield has been granted, which will involve the construction of 80 new apartments.

The development will affect the Velocity Tower, to which Velocity estates will add nine new storeys to take it up to 31 in all, the Business Desk reports.

In addition to this, there will be a second tower added of 18 storeys, which will also include an aparthotel.

Daniel Biggins, the residential lettings manager at Velocity Estates, said the plan had always been to "make an impressive mark on the city's Ecclesall Road".

The new phase "takes this aspiration to another level", he added.

Such a development indicates that some are still confident in the potential of this kind of property, despite the mothballing of some other city living apartment schemes such as the Lumiere Tower in Leeds.

However, the Lumiere project may be back up and running again next year, Crains Manchester Business reported last month.
