SHOW homes at the refurbished Park Hill flats will be opened on Saturday when the first apartments will go on sale.

Four apartments will be fitted out in the first phase of the redevelopment, and the marketing suite will be open from 11am till 6pm. Prices range from £90,000 to £150,000.

The 50-year-old Grade II* listed building is being given a new lease of life by regeneration company Urban Splash in partnership with the council and the Government.

Sheffield Lib Dems, who say the high-rise blocks should have been demolished instead of revamped, say the whole scheme will cost £39m of national taxpayers’ money – and each socially-rented flat will cost at least £195,000.
