Planning consent for Sheffield regeneration

The next two blocks of Sheffield’s Heart of the City II have been given the green light

Designed by Leonard Design, Block B and Block C, known as Laycock House & Pepperpot respectively, front onto Pinstone Street at the Eastern gateway to the Sheffield Heart of the City II masterplan.

The late Victorian Laycock House, will be sensitively restored as part of the Block B development, including the three-storey townhouses and smaller retail units. Elsewhere, Premier House will be replaced with a high quality, contemporary new-build development consisting of four new retail units and 52 apartments spread across seven floors.

Block C incorporates the façade and roofscape of another late 19th Century building know as ‘The Pepperpot’. The plans include five retail units at ground level with 37,000 sq ft of premium Grade A office space on the floors above.

A contractor to work across both Block B and Block C is set to be announced in the next few weeks and work on site is likely to start this summer, with completion scheduled for late 2020.
