New webpage showcases exciting transformation of Sheffield city centre
An incredible number of regeneration projects are currently taking place in the centre of Sheffield, all helping to create a city centre fit for the future.
From the inspiring Heart of the City II development around Cambridge Street and the historical redevelopment of Castlegate, to the transformation of Fargate and, the brand new Radisson Blu hotel on Pinstone Street, the city centre is fast becoming a thriving, liveable and sustainable place to be.
A new webpage dedicated to bringing all the different projects together is helping residents, businesses, and visitors ‘discover Sheffield’s changing city centre’. It features updates, news and key milestones as each development progresses.

Cllr Ben Miskell, Chair of the Transport, Regeneration and Climate Committee, said:
“Sheffield really is a city on the up and the launch of this new webpage makes it even easier for everyone to keep up to date on the progress of each of the fantastic projects that are transforming the city centre.
“As the city centre continues to thrive through our exciting regeneration, we want to showcase all the exciting developments that are joining existing favourites. Together, they’re enticing people into the area to live, work and play.”
‘Discover Sheffield’s changing city centre’ has regular updates charting the progress of each redevelopment project all the way through to completion. It also has information about new shops, restaurants and businesses moving to the city, from the new shops in Heart of the City II to the new restaurants that will call the former Cole Brothers building home, as well as key transport information to help you get around.

Cllr Miskell added:
“All the construction work that’s taking place in the city centre demonstrates the scale and vision of our regeneration plans. Together we're creating a city centre that people can be proud of and have listened to people in the city about what they want.
“This new webpage gives us the chance to put this work into context and tell the story of what’s new and what’s happening next in the city centre.
“We want to thank Sheffielders for bearing with the work while all of this amazing regeneration takes place. The end results will be worth the wait, and we are so excited that it’s all starting to come to life.”
