Radisson Blu scheme takes the next stepPosted by: Richard Abbey
The proposals for the development of Pinstone Street, Burgess Street and Barker’s Pool are now open for consultation.
The Heart of the City II development continues apace and you can now take a look at the proposed addition of a Radisson Blu hotel on Pinstone Street.
The next phase of Heart of the City II focusses on the site located between Pinstone Street, Barker’s Pool and Burgess Street. Notably, this phase will see Sheffield welcome international hotelier Radisson Blu to a prominent location on Pinstone Street. Housed in the picturesque buildings overlooking the Peace Gardens, the upmarket hotel brand will join HSBC and CMS as another key anchor for the scheme.
Radisson Blu is renowned for its unparalleled service, comfort and style. Operating hundreds of elegant business and leisure spaces across the globe, its latest venture on Pinstone Street will act as an impressive gateway to the Heart of the City II scheme, welcoming business visitors and promoting Sheffield as an attractive tourist destination.
The hotel would span five floors along Pinstone Street and provide a high-end restaurant, rooftop bar and conferencing suite. The ground floor would host complementary retail and food and beverage units.
A new seven-storey building would be located to the western edge of the site, replacing Barkers Pool House and incorporating most of the 154 hotel rooms. To ensure congruity with the existing buildings on Pinstone Street, the development would step down to five storeys.
Sitting between the two core hotel blocks would be a central courtyard. A befitting food and beverage unit would spill out to this outdoor area, encouraging a bustling social atmosphere.
The pre-application consultation period will run from 24 June to 21 July 2020. Click here to see more.
