Property regeneration specialist Urban Splash is filling up commercial spaces at an iconic grade II listed building in Sheffield.

Park Hill is to become a new creative and digital hub in the city as more Sheffield-based businesses plan to move there over the next six months.

Simon Gawthorpe, managing director of Urban Splash, said: “The work we are doing at Park Hill is not just about creating some fantastic living accommodation but is also using this amazing building with its great spaces, views and natural light to develop the commercial space for businesses, retail and hospitality.

“Park Hill is an award-winning listed icon of a building and around it we are aiming to create a new mid century modern quarter of Sheffield.

“That is why we are delighted to be welcoming more businesses to Park Hill over the coming months who have bought or rented offices varying in size from 1,000 sq ft to 4,000 sq ft.

“We are also excited by the fact that by the end of this year the business community at Park Hill could have grown to 200.”

Warp Films, Cloaked, Yoomee, Airship, Kada Research, Can Studios and Alpha Recruitment will join Uber and Human who have been based at Park Hill for two years.

Established in 2002, Warp Films is an independent film and television production company based in Sheffield and London.

Yoomee builds community platforms, websites, apps and other digital services to help charities, social enterprises and other not-for-profit organisations further their impact.

Urban Splash partnered with Great Places to develop 78 apartments in the first phase completed in 2013.

These have all been sold and there are over 100 residents currently living at Park Hill.
