Cue moans from people saying that there are far too many hotel rooms in Sheffield without providing any basis for this in fact, and how that part of Sheffield should go back to how it was before....

This was mentioned in the Primark closing down thread a while back!

Probably wants Sheffield City Centre to go back to the 1980s with all the boarded up shops and the stinking subways.

All my websites have now been deleted due to rising costs and lack of time to maintain them.

Hole in the road was ok as was the market.

They are knocking down the bit that was the main entrance and the hotel is going to be the bit above KFC or the other way round?

For all those complaining about too many hotel bedrooms just remember that at this moment of time 100+ bedroom hotel is being demolished on Charter square.

From the town layout point of view it really does appear as though the council want to keep all retail activity from the bottom of Fargate up to the new Moor market with an obvious spur toward Devonshire Green and the new retail quarter.

This is quite a change for those of us of a certain age who recall the long linear shopping street from the Moor to the Castle Market.

With an Easy hotel and the new Sheffield Hallam University complex in the old GPO I hope that the 'square' of Fitzalan has money allocated to it. So many 'squares' have been tidied and yet that one remains the poor relation.

Hotels I've stayed in have had gyms attached. Mainly for hotel guests, but, to help with the running costs, they also allow non-residents to use them. Just like a hotel bar really.

Grab yourself a flight to mainland Europe. You won't be short of stores on a good few destinations. Although, you won't get chariots of fire when gliiding on the escalators!

Really???

Have you actually been down "that side of town" as you call it. You are talking nonsense.

The whole area is changing with a mix of new student accommodation, offices and other businesses. Its already surrounded by several established hotels and is minutes away from the uni, rail stations and office buildings. Its likely to do very well

Some people always have to have a pop no matter what is proposed or what is built. No wonder this city is so behind.

Sometimes I really wish they would bring the hole in the road and all those hideous underground Walkways back circa 1989 just to remind some of those with the rose tinted specs exactly what a crap hole this city really was before the developers started their work
