Campus 1 Devonshire Courtyard
Student Accommodation & Bar Restaurant
364 en-suite student bedrooms
6,500 square feet of bar restaurant
72 cluster apartments
A former car showroom and workshops on a half acre site in the centre of Sheffield overlooking Devonshire Green.
Purchased off-market purchase from West Riding Graphics, a scheme was created in conjunction with Axis Architects and DLP planning consultants comprising of en-suite cluster units with between five and seven individual bedrooms in each unit, with shared communal kitchen and living space for each apartment.
The scheme was designed so that the student accommodation can be able to be converted into traditional rented sector apartments if future market conditions change.
Potential purchasers were identified and after a series of parallel negotiations the development was developed in partnership with Rotch Property Group and subsequently forward sold to the Unite Group before completion. The development is now known as Devonshire Courtyard.
