An artist's imagining of Heart of the City II
Radisson Blu has been selected by Sheffield City Council as the preferred hotel brand for its flagship Heart of the City II hotel on Pinstone Street, overlooking the Peace Gardens.
The upper upscale international hotel brand is operated by Radisson Hotel Group and is renowned for its personalized service in stylish spaces. The hotel will anchor the new Heart of the City II scheme which is already home to global bank HSBC and which will shortly welcome prominent international law firm, CMS, who are occupying 45,000 sq. ft of office space later in the year.
Part of Block A in Heart of the City II, the hotel will be housed in the striking Victorian architecture towards the top end of Pinstone Street, adjacent to the Barclays building on the corner. It is expected to feature over 150 rooms and will have a prominent location with views of the Peace Gardens.
Developed by Sheffield City Council and its strategic delivery partner, Queensberry, Block A sits between Pinstone Street, Burgess Street and Barker’s Pool. Providing a key gateway to the Heart of the City II district from the east, Block A will also feature premium retail units at street level and 45,000 sq. ft of office or residential space.
Located at the very core of Sheffield's centre, Heart of the City II will bind together the old and the new; keeping the existing street patterns and quirky historic buildings, but adding in striking new architecture and unique outdoor spaces. Rooted in the city’s unique character, Heart of the City will provide a new home for Sheffield’s cultural, commercial and creative trailblazers.
