A new development of 100 apartments could be built on a site in Sheffield city centre if newly submitted plans get the go-ahead.
Six Developments, supported by architects' practice Cadenza VM, has submitted an application to Sheffield city Council for a residential development on land at Stepney Street.
Planning permission is sought for a development of an eight-storey building featuring 100 private rental sector (PRS) apartments.
A total of 95 one-bed flats would be provided, together with four studios and a single two-bedroom unit.
The proposed development is designed to be car free, but covered cycle storage will be provided.
A design and access statement prepared in support of the application said: "This small housing enclave has been planned as a gated community, and the housing units have been designed for the needs of residents and reflect property style and values in the local area.
"The proposal is for a high-density development to reflect the character and intimacy of the surrounding new and existing developments."
Watkin Jones previously secured planning permission of a development of 62-bed apartment building in December 2017, but this scheme was not brought forward. The developer had originally acquired the site to provide car parking for its Pinnacles Development.
The new scheme has been developed to "increase the economic efficiency and density of the development in order to make the proposition viable and therefore deliverable".

Will this conflict with any potential solutions for the problematic northern throat which is limiting train services in and out of Sheffield station?

It is quite a vote of confidence in the city to invest in that area and put such a large 8 storey block in. If this area continues to get denser with new buildings it will change it beyond all recognition again. 30 years ago my mate used to work for a car mechanic close by and I used to go down and see them and lend a hand from time to time. It used to be knackered old buildings used for car washes and little car mechanics back then and 3 pubs.
