Daniel Ladbury, Director of Estates is set to share an exciting commercial opportunity at the gateway to the city, alongside our Campus Masterplan with a global audience at MIPIM this week (Monday 12 – Friday 16 March).  

Dan will join the Sheffield City Region delegation at the annual MIPIM real estate exhibition and conference representing Sheffield Hallam University to share our strategic developments with the 24,000 international property professionals.

MIPIM presents a fantastic opportunity to share our Campus Masterplan more widely, on a global platform and also launch a really exciting commercial development opportunity right at the gateway to the city. Hallam are looking for delivery and funding partners to help bring these plans to life.

Sheffield Hallam University are seeking partners and investors for a Sheffield City Gateway proposal to redevelop the former Nelson Mandela Building site. Working with partners BDP. and Lambert Smith Hampton we have created an ambitious pitch to transform this desirable location, directly opposite Sheffield Train Station with Sheaf Street and Pond Street on either side. The offer is a mix of uses, including restaurants, a hotel, conferencing facilities and residential units. This is an opportunity that supports, but is not a core part of, our Campus Masterplan.

Professor Chris Husbands, Vice-Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University, said: “We recognise the important role the University plays as one of the major employers and capital investors in the region, as well as being one of the largest higher education institutions in the country.

“We are delighted to be at MIPIM 2018 to showcase our ambitious future plans for our estate and the wider Sheffield City Region which aims to boost economic growth and tackle societal issues through our world leading research centres.”

The proposition has been developed with the Sheffield City Council Core Strategy in mind: the site lies within the Sheffield Urban Area which encourages and promotes major development, vibrant and engaging street scenes.

The building, originally The Phoenix Building, was home to Sheffield City Polytechnic’s Student’s Union and was renamed the Nelson Mandela Building in 1982, to honour the anti-apartheid campaigner.

The Sheffield City Region delegation will be a mix of public and private representatives from local city councils, and partnering organisations such as architects, contractors, Doncaster Sheffield Airport and many more.

Established in 1990, MIPIM gathers the most influential international property players from the office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial sectors for four days of networking, learning and transaction.
