Heart Of The City II

Sheffield

“It’s the UK’s largest local authority financed regeneration plan. Sheffield Council is reinventing its city centre and we have accepted the challenge. Truly mixed use and intelligently phased over time it is a shining example of a collaborative private/public sector partnership. It is a blueprint for 21st century urban renewal: sustainable architecture and repurposed buildings surrounded by enlivened streets and distinctive public spaces.”
