Fitzwilliam Street / Cavendish Street

Student Accommodation / Leisure / Retail

Fitzwilliam Street Acme

Land assembly involving the purchase of the Acme Surmanco scissor works and adjoining properties with a view to developing the large scale major student accommodation scheme in Sheffield city centre.

The successful design revolutionised the local authority’s acceptance of city centre living schemes by incorporating 372 student bed spaces alongside a new outdoor piazza and retail / leisure offer connecting Fitzwilliam Street to Cavendish Street with Grade A office space above.

The site was sold to City Estates with the benefit of the new consents providing the planning precedence and template for their successful West One project.
