    Park Hill

    Sheffield

    Forged in Sheffield

    Streets in the Sky

    Park Hill is a Brutalist, concrete icon, and the largest listed building in Europe.

    Standing proudly at the top of hill overlooking Sheffield city centre Park Hill was a utopian vision, created in 1961 to create a new community for families. Its distinctive ‘streets in the sky’ – spaces outside each home that were wide enough for a milk float to do doorstep deliveries – were places in which families congregated and life thrived.

    Fast forward to 2022, and Park Hill’s well on its way to being that place; The Sunday Times recently cited the building as somewhere helping to make Sheffield the ‘Capital of Cool’.

    The community here is growing thanks to already completed phases, including the 260 fully occupied, mixed tenures homes that we completed in Park Hill’s first phase. Those brilliantly-designed, award-winning duplexes stand above ten contemporary workspaces on the ground floor – including the Grace Owen Nursery and popular café South Street Kitchen – a tasty and popular addition to the neighbourhood.

    In 2019, Alumno Developments completed accommodation for students here, providing homes for 356 students and the handy Park Hill Provisions convenience store in an area known as Beton House (Beton being the French word for concrete; clever ‘eh).

    In 2022, we completed our latest fully sold-out phase of homes at Park Hill. A ‘muted’ approach saw softer colours used on the building’s façade, again allowing for this phase to have its own identity – one that was designed by Stirling Prize winning architects Mikhail Riches. Comprising of 195 homes and 20,000 sq ft of mixed-use workspace.

    What next you say? Well, were still developing the external areas around Park Hill, adding to the existing landscaping, as well as working with an art gallery to turn the fourth phase of the building into the Park Hill Artspace – a new gallery for the north, featuring a café, shop, studios and more. We are also working on plans for a fifth and final phase.

    Location

    Beautiful Brutalism

    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 1980's 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.
