    Park Hill is like no other place. Iconic is an overused term, but it really does apply to Park Hill. 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 are creating a world class landscape, inside and outside its walls.

    Park Hill has amazingly spacious one and two bedroom, duplex, dual aspect apartments with floor to ceiling glazing allowing the best city views Sheffield has to offer. Architects Hawkins-Brown working with Studio Egret West have given special consideration to the façade because of the significance of it looming over the city. Colourful anodised aluminium panels replicate the coloured brick tones of the original façade and emphasise the modular structure.

    We are working to bring love, life and pride back to this iconic project and make it a genuinely vibrant and sustainable community for the 21st Century. Phase 1 is now complete and residents have moved into their new homes. We are looking forward to beginning work on new homes at Park Hill soon, so register your interest now.

    Our commercial team are working to bring in wonderful neighbours downstairs too. 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. Two awesome, cool creative agencies have already moved into Park Hill.

    The space around the building is becoming beautifully landscaped gardens, perfect for spending lazy days outside. Urban Splash and our public partners – Sheffield City Council, Transform South Yorkshire, Homes and Communities Agency, English Heritage and Great Places can't wait to share Park Hill with you.

    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.
