SHEFFIELD | City Lofts Tower | 101m | 32 fl | Com

I couldn't find a thread for this, so here goes.

This just sneaks in to the Highrise forum and 101m, but it's a huge building for Sheffield where the tallest has been the 70m Arts Tower for the last 50 years. The building is residential with retail on the ground floor, and is part of a larger development containing offices, retail, residential units, a car parking and a 4* hotel. Construction has now started and we're looking forward to seeing thins rise. It is in competition to be Sheffields tallest with another tower, rumour to be up to 36 stories (Currently at 4 stories high, but with no planning permission ).

Very nice for Sheffield!

Nice to see another UK North City in the world forums!

How the hell has it started with no planing permit?

Good Luck!

sure is.

not only is it much taller than anything else in the area, it's also sitting on top of a pretty big hill so skyline domination is guaranteed!

rhinomatt, this one has palnning permission. it's another tower which has started without. the situation is odd though because they're currently building an older scheme (which fell through but did have permission) with hopes of extending upwards with modified planning permission....i think!

It's 177.2m AOD.

And yeah, sorry if I didn't make that clear. It's another tower which doesn't have PP, but is now up to 4 stories. It's meant to be about the same height as this one, so we'll have to see which get's there first

It's clearly that this building is of more importance for Sheffields skyline than another 200+ or 300+ is for Dubai.

Welcome to the 100+ club!

Yeah Cheers for the comments guys. I was thinking we were gonna get a bit of a slaughtering on here.

I agree with you ZZ-II, it's not anything groundbreaking in design, but it's good and conservative (should hopefully age well), and probably a good start for Sheffield on the 100m+ ladder.
