New Globe Works offices plannedPosted by: Genevieve Braund
The Grade II listed building, which recently became home to Saw Grinders Union, has submitted plans to Sheffield City Council
Back in June, we told you all about cheese dunking sensation Saw Grinders Union, a restaurant which burst onto the scene after the historic Globe Works in Kelham Island came out of hibernation.
If you’ve had chance to pop along to the joint, which offers indulgent comfort food to make your personal trainer hyperventilate, you may have noticed that there’s a vacant space right next door, waiting to be filled.
Well, we’ve done some digging and can reveal that there are plans underway to convert the space into eight new office spaces, served by communal facilities and a reception area, which developers Tatlow Stancer Architects said: “would enhance the local economy and be a great improvement on the buildings standing empty."

The new application seeks planning permission for the refurbishment and change of use of three connected building on the site, and the partial demolition and rebuilding of a fourth.
The new work space will join other Kelham Island enterprise hub A-ten, as the area continues to blossom as a breeding ground for booming businesses.
So with like-minded business big shots to rub shoulders with, and an endless supply of chips ‘n’ gravy (or Poutine, as their menu likes to put it) next door, this location is sure to provide enough inspiration and brain food to help local businesses flourish.
And when you clock off for the day, there’s an abundance of bars and pubs to keep you occupied on the walk home. After all, the motto is “work hard, play harder”, right?
