Plans submitted for Mixed-Use Student Accommodation scheme at Hoyle Street

Posted by Mike Hall Regional Director and Board Director

Jefferson Sheard’s mixed-use student accommodation scheme at Hoyle Street, Sheffield, has been submitted to planning.

The scheme, which is being developed by Mace, will provide 658 student beds and 247 homes, delivering a commercially viable solution for this important site.

The project is significant not only in its size and type, but also because the area is steeped in the industrial heritage for which Sheffield is famous. The Doncaster Street Cementation Furnace is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and the only remaining one of its kind in the city, and it occupies part of the site.

Jefferson Sheard’s Project Director, Mike Hall, commented:

“The team’s design response is sympathetic to the site’s historical context, but it’s forward looking too. The development will bring new homes to this part of the city whilst at the same time using that heritage to inform the city’s future.”

The design of the Hoyle Street project has evolved through a series of consultations and design workshops with the Sheffield City Council Local Planning Authority and Consultees.

This is the latest project in Jefferson Sheard’s Student Accommodation portfolio, which is extensive across the UK, particularly in London and the South East.
