Concept House

We’ve hated this building, but its owner is hoping we might forgive and forget. This is Concept House on Young Street, next to the Moorfoot Building, better known as HM Revenue & Customs, scheduled for closure in 2020-2021. The seven-storey office block was built in 1995 and now planning permission has been granted to Royal Sun Alliance Insurance allowing them to convert it for residential use, with plans for 83 flats.

An application has also been submitted to convert part of Concept House into a hotel and commercial units. Under these plans, a total of 161 bedrooms would be created across the upper floors. A bar/restaurant unit would be created on the ground floor and operate independently from the hotel. The basement, which is currently used as a car park, would operate as an independent gym.

UPDATE: Planning permission was granted, subject to conditions, by Sheffield City Council in November 2019.
