If approved the plan would see the hotel open on Pinstone Street, overlooking the Peace Gardens. The 154-bedroom hotel would be housed behind the Victorian façades of Palatine Chambers and City Mews.

A separate building would incorporate most of the hotel rooms, with secondary lobby access from Burgess Street. Included within the development would be conferencing facilities as well as retail and food units.

Andrew Davison, Project Director at Queensberry, said: “After many months of hard work, we’re pleased that an application for the Block A proposals has now been submitted. A huge amount of effort has gone into developing a fresh and contemporary design for the brand-new hotel, while also paying homage to Sheffield’s unique character.

“These plans will breathe fresh life into Pinstone Street, and we can’t wait to welcome international hotel brand Radisson Blu to Sheffield.”

Councillor Mazher Iqbal, Cabinet Member for Business and Investment at Sheffield City Council, commented: “We’re delighted to announce that an application has now been submitted for our plans to add a four star+ hotel and rooftop bar to Sheffield city centre. This step marks yet another significant milestone as we continue our progress towards transforming Sheffield’s heart of the city.

“We’ve reached this point in the process after a recent public consultation — throughout which we received a great deal of valuable feedback from local people and stakeholder groups.

“The comments and perspectives shared during the consultation have helped us to successfully shape our proposals and I would like to personally thank everyone who has participated in the process.”
