Block A: Proposals for Pinstone Street, Burgess Street and Barker’s Pool

Have your say

Sheffield City Council invites you to comment on proposals for the next phase of Heart of the City II — plans to build a high-quality hotel on Pinstone Street.

Prior to the submission of the planning application, we want to inform key stakeholders and local residents about the proposals and give them an opportunity to contribute to our final plans.

The pre-application consultation period will run from 24 June to 21 July 2020.

The situation with COVID-19 means that we are unable to hold public drop-in sessions as part of this consultation. A meaningful consultation should provide the opportunity for genuine dialogue; therefore we are committed to providing this opportunity even if we can’t meet face-to-face.

To find out more about these proposals, you can view our Heart of the City II Block A Consultation Boards or watch our short film below.

Please note that this consultation has now closed.

The next phase — bringing Radisson Blu to Sheffield

The next phase of Heart of the City II focusses on the site located between Pinstone Street, Barker’s Pool and Burgess Street. Notably, this phase will see Sheffield welcome international hotelier Radisson Blu to a prominent location on Pinstone Street. Housed in the picturesque buildings overlooking the Peace Gardens, the upmarket hotel brand will join HSBC and CMS as another key anchor for the scheme.

Radisson Blu is renowned for its unparalleled service, comfort and style. Operating hundreds of elegant business and leisure spaces across the globe, its latest venture on Pinstone Street will act as an impressive gateway to the Heart of the City II scheme, welcoming business visitors and promoting Sheffield as an attractive tourist destination.

The site

Block A incorporates the 19th century Palatine Chambers and adjoining City Mews buildings on Pinstone Street, as well as the site of Barkers Pool House on Burgess Street. The proposals would see the redevelopment of Palatine Chambers and the City Mews, with their façades preserved to retain the buildings’ rich heritage. A sympathetic roof extension would complete the structure.

The proposals

The hotel would span five floors along Pinstone Street and provide a high-end restaurant, rooftop bar and conferencing suite. The ground floor would host complementary retail and food and beverage units.

A new seven-storey building would be located to the western edge of the site, replacing Barkers Pool House and incorporating most of the 154 hotel rooms. To ensure congruity with the existing buildings on Pinstone Street, the development would step down to five storeys.

Sitting between the two core hotel blocks would be a central courtyard. A befitting food and beverage unit would spill out to this outdoor area, encouraging a bustling social atmosphere.
