Offices planned at Sheffield IT campus

Plans to extend the Digital Campus IT business centre, close to Sheffield’s bus and railway stations, by building two new office blocks are set to get the go-ahead next week.

Sheffield Council’s planning committee is recommended to grant permission for the buildings - one six storeys high, the other eight storeys - at a meeting on Tuesday.

Together the two blocks will offer more than 14,000 sq m of office space. A report to councillors said the taller building is ‘largely glazed’ and will ‘create a striking impact as the city centre is approached from Park Square roundabout’.
