Plans For Sheffield Kings Street Tower Set For Approval

Building plans for a 39-storey tower are set to be approved in December, subject to conditions, which when constructed would make it one of the tallest buildings in the whole of Yorkshire.

The development, on the junction of High Street, Angel Street and Arundel Gate, requires the demolition of part of a building that was at one point a Primark, as well as the temporary relocation of Sheffield market during its construction.

The building would consist of a ground floor commercial unit, as well as 206 residential apartments, as well as create a local landmark in its own right and aid in regeneration plans for Sheffield.

Scaffolders in Sheffield and across Yorkshire have been busy with a wave of huge building projects starting or submitting plans in 2020, each attempting to take the record for the largest building in the region.

Currently, Bridgewater Place (aka The Dalek) in Leeds, at 112-metres, has taken the record for the largest building and has held it since September 2005.

However, this Kings Street project (at 39-storeys), the Atlus House development in Leeds (at 114 metres) and Code Co-Living in Sheffield (at 38-storeys and 117 metres tall) look set to take this record.

Even larger buildings in Leeds have also been submitted in 2020, the tallest of which would be a staggering 46-storeys tall.

High rise buildings of this scale are beneficial for the local area, not only for the sheer stark size but for also providing large amounts of accommodation in a relatively small spot of land.
