First Phase - June 2024
West Bar is an exciting regeneration £300 million scheme in the centre of Sheffield which will deliver up to 1 million sq ft of commercial space alongside new apartments, a multi-storey car park and over one acre of public realm.
Offering large footprint buildings and complete design flexibility across seven acres of prime city centre land. On completion, the area will be transformed into a new central hub within Sheffield within a vibrant mixed-use environment. In addition to offices, it will also contain retail, leisure, hotel and living space alongside a multi-storey car park.
The scheme will build upon an existing employment area currently providing circa 3,500 jobs to occupiers such as Irwin Mitchell, The Home Office and the Health and Safety executive to name a few. When complete, West Bar will add an additional 5,000 jobs to the area. The aim of West Bar is to provide a new commercial home with high quality office space over large floor plates (in excess of 10,000 sq ft per floor) which sits within a thriving, sustainable community.
