Council selects Queensberry as partner for £480m Sheffield Retail Quarter
Sheffield City Council has selected Queensberry Real Estate as Strategic Development Partner for the £480m Sheffield Retail Quarter, a scheme to bring world-class shopping, leisure, residential and office opportunities into the heart of the city.
The council has been working up the scheme on its own following the withdrawal of previous developer Hammerson. With planning permission in place, the first phase of Sheffield Retail Quarter is estimated to be completed in 2019 with further final phases being complete in 2021
Councillor Leigh Bramall, deputy leader of Sheffield City Council, said: “This is a key milestone and a significant step forward in the delivery of the scheme, which will provide a transformational development in the heart of our city centre. Queensberry not only demonstrate this shared ambition, but they have a clear aspiration to further raise the bar for the scheme. We look forward to working with Queensberry as we refine the plans for the Sheffield Retail Quarter.”
Queensberry CEO Paul Sargent said: "My team has been focused for the last 18 months on winning this major instruction. It is a dream come true. A scheme that meets the scale of our ambition and challenges our creative experiences to date.”
