@Bargepole23You have to register/sign in to read that story, and I'm not doing either - but where are they going to put 'an iconic (ha-ha) new building'?

From The Star.....

 

A landmark new building in pride of place on a premium Sheffield street is "90 per cent" likely to be a restaurant or bar, the developer said.

The former Next store site, on the corner of Norfolk Row, is set to be transformed into  a two-storey unit with full height windows and a roof terrace.

 

It is 90 per cent likely to be let to a hospitality operator, according to David Woodhead, of Woodhead Investments.

 

The firm is hoping to win planning approval within days, before appointing a contractor to start in the new year, he added. Construction is set to last 12 months and the development open in 2025.

Mr Woodhead said he’d had interest from two local businesses but he was holding out for a national operator.

 

He added: "We’re awaiting a planning decision before tendering for a builder. It’s all hopefully about to happen."

 

The project hit problems last year when structural columns were found to be too weak to reuse. Then the builder went bust.

 

Sheffield architects Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson have described their design as 'an iconic symbol of the city’s progress'.

The announcement comes as Fargate shifts from retail to culture, coffee shops and restaurants.

 

The former Next site is set to be a restaurant or bar.

Until the developer has the planning permission granted, then it is all hopeful, as it is for pretty much any build anywhere in the country.

 

Until they have a tenant who has signed a contract, then same again.

 

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make? It's not like the developer hasn't already pumped loads of money into the project.

Why is it worth putting on here when there is nothing happening yet .

Is there a standard to met detailing the level of information to provided in a post? In this instance, the developer has provided information about the imminent planning decision.

 

And this from the man whose most informative post is a dancing banana......

The development on the old Next site is nothing to do with SCC.
