Plans are advancing for a mixed-use development on the former site of the surgical steel manufacturer B Braun.
Easingwold-based developer Caedmon Homes has submitted proposals for 10 town houses and 31 apartments, together with commercial office space, on the 45,000 sq ft Allen Court development in Sheffield.
Sheffield City Council is currently discussing the fine details of the £9m development with Caedmon Homes, part of the Norstar Real Estate Group.
Paul Brown, of Caedmon Homes, said: “This is a significant development for Sheffield, providing the city with quality new homes. There is a pressing need for competitively-priced town houses and one and two-bed apartments to buy near the centre of the city and our Allen Court project will address this.
“There has been a long-term gap between the estimated annual demand for housing in the region and the number of homes built each year. A recent State of Sheffield report, commissioned by the Sheffield Executive Board, highlights the need for new housing in the city centre for a growing population. In addition, there is a proven need for SME accommodation in an up-and-coming urban environment.”
Mr Brown added: “We are hoping to start construction in the autumn of this year.”
