Specialist regeneration and development firm Urbo has submitted plans for a £175M mixed-use development project at West Bar, Sheffield.

The West Bar Square project comprises 10 buildings, each with self-contained parking.

The scheme, fronting Sheffield’s inner relief road, will create up to 130,000sq m of space, most of which will be office space.

The application also includes plans for apartments blocks, a four-star hotel, restaurants, retail units and public spaces.

The project presents a significant step forward in the regeneration of Sheffield’s Riverside Business District, which already contains major employers such as the Home Office and lawyers Irwin Mitchell.

Peter Swallow, Urbo’s managing director, said: “We’re delighted to move West Bar Square to the next level. It is a very significant development for the city and will create a premier business district to attract major employers.

“There has also been strong interest in private rented sector apartments with many investment funds eager to house people in a purpose-built environment.”

Site assembly and clearance is already underway to enable the earliest possible start on site, subject to planning approval.
