A £100M Building In Sheffield Is Set To Be The Tallest Building In Yorkshire

Yorkshire’s tallest building is currently Bridgewater Place in Leeds, however that’s all set to change really soon.

A brand new £100M skyscraper has been approved to be built in Sheffield, and the building is set to be a whopping 38 storeys tall, and will be built alongside two smaller structures, which will stand at 12 and 17 storeys high. Construction is set to take place this year, and could begin in the Summer.

The new building is being developed as 1,200 apartments, which will be marketed at students, graduates and young professionals and will be situated Rockingham Street, Wellington Street and Trafalgar Street right in Sheffield’s city centre by Corporation.

The apartment building will include a gym, common area, cinema room, and shops on the ground floor.

Bridgewater Place currently sits at 112 metres and 32 storeys and will soon be overtaken by Leeds student accommodation block, Altus House – which will stand at 114 metres and 38 storeys.

A completion date is not currently known for the brand new skyscraper.
