Manchester-based property developers CTP have won a major honour for their “transformational” Heart of the City development in Sheffield.
CTP, working in conjunction with Sheffield City Council and the U+I Group, triumphed in the Development of the Decade category at Yorkshire Business Insider’s South Yorkshire Property Awards.
The judges said: “The Heart of the City development has been transformational in setting a benchmark for the regeneration of Sheffield as a modern commercial city centre.
“The old ‘egg box’ Town Hall building is now long gone and has been replaced by attractive public spaces and much-needed prime office space, which has contributed to the region’s economy by attracting businesses such as Arup, DLA Piper, PwC and Royal Bank of Scotland.
“The development has also set the tone and laid the foundation for future developments such as Sheffield Retail Quarter,” the judges added.
David Topham, managing director of CTP, commented: “It is clearly a very gratifying experience to be the recipient of an award that has been judged to have made such a contribution to not only the City of Sheffield, but also seen as significant and important in a regional context.
“Our plan was always to deliver an exceptional scheme for this important site, recognising that one is not often given the responsibility to regenerate a key part of a city centre of such prominence and a scheme of such commercial importance to Sheffield, with the re-establishing of a Central Business District for the city one of its core aims in the brief laid down by the City Council.
“This award is the recognition of the part our team has played is helping us to deliver St Paul’s Place in the Heart of the City, and especially of the key part our partners at the city council have played in selecting us in the first place and helping us to steer the project through multiple phases over a period of the last 12 years,” he added.
