    Park Hill is going to be like no other place. Iconic is an overused term, but it really does apply to Park Hill. Completed in 1961, the Grade II* Listed Park Hill (the largest Listed structure in Europe) is a landmark on the Sheffield skyline atop one of the city's seven hills immediately to the east of the mainline railway station and city centre.It already has character and we want to create a world class landscape, inside and outside its walls.

    Urban Splash is working with a great design team of architects (Hawkins-Brown and Studio Egret West) and our public partners – Sheffield City Council, Transform South Yorkshire, Homes and Communities Agency, English Heritage and Great Places - to bring love, life and pride back to this iconic project and make it a genuinely vibrant and sustainable community for the 21st century.

    The great thing about Park Hill is that it's flexible to suit your needs. Instead of us breaking up the space available into different sizes, we've left it for you to decide. You know best how your space will work for your business, and Park Hill can offer you flexible space from 500 sq ft to 21,500 sq ft. Park Hill has always been about the community, and the community is what makes it a place.

    There will be 263 new apartments in the space above on completion of the first phase. They will all love to have wonderful neighbours downstairs. A real mix in the ingredients of a proper place for residents and visitors alike: a 'high street' of local services – butchers, newsagents, greengrocers, chippy- a doctor's and dentist's, a new home for the fantastic Grace Owen children's nursery, some great bars, pubs and cafes to make the most of the great views over the city, a village hall and a village green complete with oak tree, plus new workspace for businesses, artists or students, as well as dedicated secure provision for carparking.

    How it all began...


    How it all began...

    This amazing concrete landmark, the most ambitious inner-city development of its time, was opened in 1961, to replace slum terraces. It was a hugely popular place to live, with its 'streets in the sky' and innovative external decks for access.

    The original architects Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith's brutalist design created three different types of apartment above, below and adjacent to the deck to suit the full range of home owners from single pensioners to families of six or more.

    Over time, Park Hill became a victim of circumstance.Conceived in the 50's and delivered in the 60's, Park Hill emerged into a very different world. By the 1980s Park Hill had become dilapidated and was no longer a popular place to live. Park Hill caretaker, Grenville Squires, referred affectionately to Park Hill as his grand old lady who has 'come on hard times. She just wants to wash her face and put on a new frock, and she'll be out there!'.

    The Grade II* listing of the building in 1998 was an acknowledgement of the architectural significance of Park Hill and was strongly resisted by many at the time who wanted it to be knocked down. To use a common phrase, Park Hill's like Marmite: you either love it or hate it!

    We accept that Park Hill has its flaws but we believe it's better than a lot of the mediocrity that is defining our cities in their renaissance race.Besides, getting rid of it is not a 'sustainable' solution, not when it can be saved, repaired and made good again.

    Our plan revolves around making Park Hill a special place and knitting it in to Sheffield. We think the way to soften its brutality without softening its character is to create a world class landscape, inside and outside its walls.
