Work has started on the brand new Tata Steel warehouse which is being delivered as part of the £42 million Fox Valley development in Stocksbridge by Stocksbridge Regeneration Company Limited.
The mixed use scheme as redesigned by Dixon Dawson Charted Architects is being developed on the former steel works land off Manchester Road in Stocksbridge – part of the site is currently in use as a steel stockyard by Tata Steel.
The first phase of work for the contractors Henry Boot is to build a brand new steel warehouse to relocate the stockyard and free up the land for the Fox Valley development, enabling work to start on the main part of the site later this year.
Once the new warehouse has been completed later this year, Henry Boot Construction can then move onto the main retail and leisure site to start work on creating a new commercial heart in this part of north Sheffield which will bring up to 900 new jobs to the area.
Partner of Dixon Dawson Charted Architects Guy Dawson said, “This is a fantastic and exciting development to be associated with. The developer, main contractor and architect are all local to the area which makes things even more special. We look forwards to delivering a unique and thriving development for our client”
The development, due to be completed early in 2016, will deliver;
• A new link road to the A616 Sheffield to Manchester Road
• New high spec office space
• A new 635 space car park
• Retail, restaurant and café units anchored by a 63,000 sq. ft. Tesco store
• High quality public realm area and landscaping as well as strong pedestrian links with Manchester Road
• A new housing development neighbouring the main retail and commercial development
