A planning application has been made to transform the historic Sheffield site
A planning application has been made to Sheffield City Council to transform a former restaurant in one of Sheffield’s landmark sites.
The site, which was last occupied by the Loch Fyne seafood chain some time ago, is well-known in south-west Sheffield as the famous Hanrahan’s bar and restaurant and sits just across from the Royal Hallamshire Hospital on Glossop Road.
Recently, former Wednesday player Chris Waddle talked about the teams ‘bonding session’ outings at the bar on Pete McKee’s and Chris McClure’s Owl Sanctury podcast.
Sheffield-based developer Primesite UK is planning to spend £4 million to convert the site, which is a Grade II listed building dating back from the 1800s, into 27 brand-new apartments.
Scott Hinchliffe, director of Primesite UK, said: “It’s a shame that such a distinctive building has been unoccupied for so long, so I’m obviously delighted we’ve been able to acquire the buildings and get this once in a lifetime opportunity to repurpose these iconic buildings into a scheme that is really special.
‘’The location and configuration as well as the impact of structural issues means the building is no longer suitable for a restaurant. Our architects have come up with an exciting scheme of one, two and three bed apartments that reuses the majority of the building’s remaining internal structures, with the dramatic entrance and new build block to complement the heritage of the historic façade and service these high spec, high tech apartments in this amazing location.
“We expect there to be strong early interest in this scheme. The flexibility our team have created will be of interest to owner occupiers, first time buyers and landlords alike, given the proximity to the city centre, hospitals, universities and parks and countryside.”
Primesite UK has been working closely with award winning architects Cartwright Pickard and CODA Planning on the project. Residential Sales agent Spencer will be working with Primesite during the construction phase ahead of a proposed completion in 2020.
