Sheffield’s Attercliffe district to get £60m boost

The revitalisation of a former economic powerhouse area of Sheffield is taking further significant steps thanks to the impact being made by Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

Attercliffe – home to much of Sheffield’s engineering past – is set for a quadruple boost with the announcement of schemes totalling more than £60m. They include:

  • The redevelopment and expansion of the iconic Banners building – now home to lawyers Wosskow Brown – on Attercliffe Road.
  • The nearby Adelphi square site into a major mixed-use development combining bars, restaurants, shops, housing, a themed meeting venue, workspace and a branded hotel.
  • The creation of an English Institute of Sport Sheffield 100-bedroom hotel centred on the needs of athletes and para-athletes and support staff who use the facilities at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. This much needed hotel will help to attract more Olympic and Paralympic squads to the City.
  • The start in December of an enhanced Community Stadium – currently used by Sheffield Eagles Rugby League Club and Sheffield United Women Football Club.

Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is proving to be a real economic, community and health and wellbeing driver for the East End and the rest of the city. Iconic buildings have sprung up in the last few years including the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, National Centre of Excellence for Food Engineering, Oasis Academy School and University Technical College as well as embracing established facilities such as the English Institute of Sport Sheffield, iceSheffield and FlyDSA Arena.

In addition, high profile briefings are underway for the establishment of The Centre for Child Health Technology which will co-locate at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park – providing unrivalled opportunities to work closely with children and young people to improve health behaviours and the lives, health and wellbeing of children through prevention.

“We are seeing the regeneration and redevelopment of Attercliffe as a result of the expansion of Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park,” said former Sheffield MP Richard Caborn. “This truly is the return of Attercliffe delivering an exciting future for Sheffield and the immediate community.

Wosskow Brown opened its first office in The John Banner Building in 1989.  It employed five staff at the time, but those numbers have increased to more than 100.

Although branch offices have been opened, the heart of the Practice remains in The John Banner Centre, where all administration, accounts and supervision takes place. The proposed development will provide additional space, of a very high standard, which will benefit the Practice and its ability to continue to grow, whilst at the same time provide an excellent working environment for all the staff.

The partners in the latest regeneration proposals are Legacy Park Ltd, GVL Limited and blacc. Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is being delivered by Legacy Park Ltd, a partnership between Sheffield City Council, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield City Trust, South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw Integrated Care System and Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network.
