Sheffield’s Park Hill to be completed ‘within five years’

Regeneration of Park Hill flats is to be completed within five years, according to developers Urban Splash. The company confirmed that they have reached agreement with Sheffield City Council to finish work on Europe’s largest listed building. The remaining redevelopment will see creation of another 210 apartments and 330 student housing units. Renovation on the site started in 2007. The estate originally opened in 1961 and was seen as the most ambitious inner city housing schemes of its time. Simon Thake reports for Sheffield Live!
