Europa Link, Sheffield / November, 2022

The Harris Partnership is behind the design of a major new speculatively built industrial unit at Sheffield Business Park.

Sheffield City Council has granted full planning consent for the scheme by Gregory Properties, which will include 30,000 sq ft of industrial / warehouse space and a further 3,000 sq ft mechanical and electrical fitted office mezzanine.

The developer acquired the vacant two-acre site on Europa Link from Sheffield Business Park Ltd earlier this year, adding to its portfolio of industrial developments on key strategic sites across Yorkshire.

The steel portal frame unit will offer 9m to eaves with three ground level access doors, enhanced landscaping and car parking for 34 vehicles, secure covered cycle shelter, and gated service yard with security lighting.

Sheffield Business Park is an established 200-acre development located off Junctions 33 and 34 of the M1 and to the North of Sheffield City Centre. Current occupiers include SIG Group, South Yorkshire Police, Gleesons, TNS, Primetals and Hart Shaw.

The park is situated within the Advanced Manufacturing & Innovation District (AMID) which has benefited from substantial investment from international occupiers including Boeing, Rolls-Royce and McLaren.

Construction work is set to start by next April with practical completion expected by December 2023.
