Developers are taking advantage of the resurgence in the Kelham Island area. Next to be granted planning permission is a £70million 24-storey private rented sector (PRS) development on a site at Hoyle Street, Shalesmoor.

This will stand in a prominent position beside the busy inner ring road.

The Mirador development will comprise a series of blocks, with the tallest standing at 24 storeys. In total, 500 PRS flats would be created, along with communal lounges, a residents’ gym and management suite. Two commercial units would be developed on the ground floor, with 78 car parking spaces and communal outside space also provided.

Urbana Town Planning submitted the application on behalf of the Scotfield Group. Adam Murray, managing director at Urbana Town Planning, said: “It will deliver a brilliant new development on a massively underperforming site at the gateway to the city centre from the north, and will contribute to the ongoing success of this part of the city centre.”
