Sheffield’s Park Hill development, a joint venture between Urban Splash and Places for People, has announced that two new businesses will soon open within phase two at the site; part of a string of forthcoming commercial deals to be completed throughout 2023.
Property consultants, Inform Surveying are the first in the new wave of businesses to move into the 20,000 sq ft of mixed-use commercial space available in this phase, suitable for a variety of offices and workspaces, as well as a café and terraced restaurant.
Established in Sheffield in 2015, Inform Surveying were soon looking for a new location within the city to accommodate their growing team and to meet their commercial needs.
Commenting on the move, Inform Surveying owner and MD, Gavin Sampson, said, “Last year we reached the stage where we needed more space, without compromising our proximity to the city centre.
“As a team of property and construction professionals we were also keen to ensure our office space offered a unique feel and point of difference.
“Park Hill which had been on our horizon, quite literally, for a number of years, offered all we needed – and more.
“The dual aspect of our new office provides huge amounts of light and arguably the best views out across our city, alongside a great vibe and community feel, full of green space and yet within a five-minute walk to the central train station.
“We are proud to be part of this historic building, which will now form part of our company brand to help market the business.”
Field, a creative studio that works across brand, exhibitions, digital & emerging technologies, and web will also be taking up residence within phase two of the development in the coming months.
Joint owner and CD, Jonathan Briggs, comments; “As the owners of Field, and Sheffield-ers ourselves, we jumped to be part of the rich history that is Park Hill.
“It can be very difficult for small business to find office space across the city but Park Hill both supports and harbours independents, with what they have to offer.
“The outlook from the office unit is incredible, with second-to-non transport and parking options, another huge plus for our team and clients.
“Overall, we wanted to create a space with a creative environment that people want to be part of and Park Hill has done just that.”
Mark Latham, Urban Splash Regeneration Director commented: “Alongside our development partners we are extremely proud of our role in the Park Hill story so far, collaborating with world-class design partners to sensitively restore this incredible building.
“Our work to date has seen the creation of hundreds of homes of mixed tenure, as well as workspaces and outside spaces creating a sustainable mixed-use community.
“We are delighted to welcome our new commercial residents as we look forward to the future, building on the work already completed to ensure that more people can live, work and play here.”
Additional updates will be announced in due course.
