Godwin Developments has acquired a one-acre site, located within Sheffield city centre, and unveiled plans to transform it into a 300+ unit residential BTR (build-to-rent) development.
Located on the corner of Farm Road and Queens Road its just a five-minute walk from Sheffield’s main train station and the scheme will form a significant part of the £1.5bn Sheffield Midland Station and Sheaf Valley Development framework.
Stuart Pratt, group development director for Godwin Developments, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured this highly desirable site, situated in the Sheaf Gardens area in Sheffield.
“The scheme highlights yet again our expanding footprint in the BTR sector and ability to maintain momentum despite current economic challenges. We look forward to working closely with local planners, the community and the city council to ensure this scheme provides the best possible opportunities for Sheffield.”
The scheme is expected to create more than 200 temporary jobs during its construction phase, with an additional 30 permanent roles when operational.
