Franklin Ellis Architects have received planning permission for a new residential building at Heritage Park, at the former Royal Infirmary site north-west of Sheffield’s city centre in Upperthorpe.
The new build is part of a wider plan for the site and follows the recently completed conversion of the former vacant office which was converted into residential apartments.
The property was delivered by Mabec Property and Franklin Ellis Architects, who transformed the Grade II listed Heritage House, originally built in 1795 as well as delivering the Grade II Round House (built in 1884) and lastly the conversion of Victoria House (added to the site in 1989).
The new residential building will consist of five-floors and will be constructed on land adjacent to Heritage House which is currently being used as a car park.
The contemporarily designed building will feature 35 modern apartments with 17 one-bed units, 17 two-bed units and one three-bed unit.
Jon Crabb, an associate partner at Franklin Ellis Architects, said: “Heritage Park is comprised of beautiful, historically significant listed buildings, so it was very important to us to respect the nature of the site and retain its original charm while creating modern residential units that future tenants will love.
“We’re pleased that the new build has received planning and we look forward to seeing the site progress.”
The Heritage Park site will total of 133 apartments once this fourth building is complete.
