Godwin Developments has secured planning permission for a 23-storey with 336 apartments in a build-to-rent (BTR) scheme in Sheffield
The development – named The Meridian and situated in close proximity to Sheffield’s train station, transport routes and all major amenities – will include one, two and three-bedroom modern open-plan apartments and 94 private balconies.
The scheme also incorporates a large amount of flexible ground floor amenity space for a concierge reception, co-working spaces, residents’ only lounge and gym. It features a landscaped roof garden and plaza fronting onto Queens Road, as well as 358 cycle storage and 29 car parking spaces.
James Mulcare, Head of Residential Capital Markets at Godwin Developments, said: “The development is a major milestone for the BTR market in the city, bringing forward a multifunctional living space that is also perfect for working, relaxing and socialising.
“The Meridian is a well-located scheme of exceptional design quality shaped around the requirements and lifestyles of city centre residents. It emphasises wellbeing, light, natural materials and finishes, as well as access to private and shared outdoor space and community focused amenities.”
The scheme will redevelop a prominent 1.1-acre brownfield site situated just a five-minute walk from Sheffield’s Midland Station and a ten-minute walk from the city centre. It is very easily accessible by road and public transport, with proposed walking, cycling and tram routes expected to enhance sustainable mobility to and from the development in the near future.
