The £4.5 million, new-build scheme, which comprises 46 one-bedroom apartments – 10 of which are luxury duplex penthouses – is located adjacent to the sold-out Palatine Gardens Phase 1 on Roscoe Road in Shalesmoor.
Construction of the new apartments, which will be spread over two wings and enclose a communal landscaped garden has commenced, with completion expected in Q3 2018.
The development, which is Knight Knox’s 79th project, is located close to the Shalesmoor Supertram stop which provides easy access to both the city centre and the University of Sheffield. The development is also only a short distance from Kelham Island, one of Sheffield’s premier new urban villages, offering a range of restaurants and bars.
Andy Phillips, commercial director at Knight Knox, said: “We’re thrilled to be expanding our Yorkshire portfolio with the launch of Palatine Gardens Phase 2, whilst also contributing to Sheffield’s impressive regeneration.
“With employment opportunities rising and the city’s population predicted to boom over the coming years, there is a huge demand for high-end apartments so close to the city centre and we can’t wait to see the response. With the success of Phase 1 in mind, they’re sure to be a hit with the people of Sheffield.”
Crossbow Construction Management will act as the contractor for the scheme, which has been designed by architects Coda Studios and, once complete, will be let and block managed by Intus Lettings.
David Cross, Director at Coda Studios, said: “Sheffield is becoming an ever-more desirable place to live and work, leaving prospective residents searching for suitable homes. With Palatine Gardens, we are providing a boutique living solution with a minimalistic and tranquil design which is sure to suit the needs of people flocking to the area.”
Palatine Gardens joins a number of projects undertaken by Knight Knox and Crossbow in Sheffield, including the award-winning Dunfields development in Kelham Island and Bells Court, which saw the regeneration of an almost derelict 1950s warehouse building into 29 premium apartments.
