39 storey tower is given the go-ahead in Sheffield


Developer SFGE Properties has gained planning approval to build a 39-storey residential block in Sheffield city centre.

Planned 117m tall residential building on the former Primark site in the Castlegate area of Sheffield

It plans to redevelop the site of the former Primark store in the Castlegate area to create just over 200 flats.

Designed by architect Hodder + Partners, the £40m Kings Tower scheme involves the demolition of the vacant shopping store at 57 High Street, with a construction team on site by next summer.

The client team includes building services consultant Novo Engineering and structural engineer Clancy Consulting, with Turner & Townsend acting as cost consultant.

The building will be clad in white brick-slips at the lower levels, with portland stone fluted columns for the higher floors.

Kings Tower will sit alongside phase 1 of the redevelopment of Kings Buildings, which comprises 26,000 sq ft of new retail and leisure space and the 131-bed easyHotel.

Tony Marsden, director at SFGE Properties, said: “Thanks to Kings Tower it will be possible for more people to live in the centre of Sheffield in high-quality apartments and deliver a new retail offering in the Castlegate area, already one of the most accessible places in the city.

“We are confident Kings Tower will reinvigorate the area and provide a much-needed boost to the local economy.”
