Plans submitted for new Kelham Island development

Sheffield property company Crossbow Ventures have submitted plans to Sheffield Council for their eighth development in the city.

The new project of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and commercial units will be developed on the former Avis car rental site in Ebenezer Street at Kelham Island.

The scheme has been designed by the team at Sheffield practice CODA Architects.

“We are delighted to have seen this latest project go through to the planning stage,” said CODA Managing Director Matt Bowker.

“The CODA team have a long standing track record of developing some of Kelham Island’s most important sites and following the success of the most recent – Cotton Mill Row – we feel this is a site that demands the highest level of development.

“Throughout the design process we have worked closely with Sheffield Council planners to ensure a project that should meet all the specifications for the area.”

Crossbow director David Cross said: “This will be Crossbow’s biggest project to date, a six-storey development, with four storeys to the rear of the site.

“It is important to us as this project not only marks one of the final pieces in the Kelham Island redevelopment jigsaw and also brings our investment in Sheffield to well over £11 million.”

The Ebenezer Street proposal comes directly after the completion of the nearby £6.5 million Birtin Works site at Shalesmoor.

And it follows the success of the neighbouring Palatine Gardens project, Crossbow Ventures’ £10 million development of 101 studio apartments and duplex penthouse apartments on former commercial and light industrial land between Henry Street and Roscoe Road at Shalesmoor.

“We have been major supporters of the rebirth of Kelham Island and Shalesmoor, recognising the importance of the regeneration of areas so close to the heart of the city,” said David.

“The success of all our projects has justified our faith in this now hugely popular part of Sheffield.

“We fully anticipate that as sites within this growth area become increasingly hard to find, we will be extending our search to neighbouring Neepsend, where we look forward to enjoy similarly successful growth.”
