ESL were today awarded further repeat business with our valued client Mabec Properties. This is the third project that ESL will be engaged with in as many years.
The former Sheffield Star Building has been the home of this iconic local newspaper for almost as long as anyone can remember. Located in a City Centre position, just off the High Street, in the heart of Sheffield’s retail area and close the Sheffield Cathedral and tram, Mabec acquired the building at the start of 2018, has obtained planning consent for 253 bedspaces and is in the process of converting it into a vibrant location for students to live. This will include inserting an open light well to the centre of the building, adding a single storey roof extension and re-cladding the main facade to enhance the overall presentation of this part of the Cathedral Conservation Area.
