Steel City House

Appointment to market Sheffield City Centre building


Jointly with Knight Frank, we have been appointed to market Steel City House, one of Sheffield’s most historic, landmark buildings.

It is intended that following the departure of Department for Works and Pensions next year, Steel City House will undergo a significant internal refurbishment which will position the building as one of the city’s most sought after grade A locations; offering 63,000 sq ft of high quality office space - over six floors.

Excellent opportunity for occupiers looking for prime city centre office space

Rob Darrington, Head of Office Agency in our Sheffield office, said: “This is an extremely exciting project to work on as it is one of the most historically significant buildings in Sheffield. Steel City House is the perfect opportunity for an occupier, who is looking to re-locate to a prestigious grade A headquarters office building in the central business district of the city.”

One of the city’s most unique buildings

Steel City House was originally constructed in 1927 to house one of the world’s most advanced telephone exchanges. It has since had many changes of use - ranging from a major High Street Bank to city centre Post Office. The property retains many of the external features that make it one of the city’s most unique buildings whilst offering flexible, modern, open plan floor-plates.

Accommodation will be available from November 2013

The offices will be available to let as a whole or on a floor by floor basis. As the owner of the building plans to complete a comprehensive internal refurbishment, this offers the future occupier(s) the valuable opportunity to have an input into the specification and internal finishes. The accommodation will be available from November 2013 and will comprise:

  • Air Conditioning
  • Raised floors
  • Suspended ceilings
  • Cat II lighting
  • Two passenger lifts
  • Double glazing 
  • Substantial ground floor reception
  • On-site parking spaces

Rob Darrington concluded: “Although the market remains competitive, we expect there will be significant interest in this unique building.”
