Plans for the John Lewis Building revealed

Sheffield BID welcomes Sheffield City Council’s decision to enter detailed negotiations with the preferred bidder (Urban Splash) for the redevelopment of the former John Lewis site in Barker’s Pool. 

Diane Jarvis, Head of Business Operations at Sheffield BID, said: 

“Today’s announcement is great news for the city centre. 

"Redevelopment of the site will bring new life to what is an iconic city centre building, whilst continuing the work that is resulting in a rapid transformation of Sheffield city centre. 

“Anyone who visits the city centre will have recognised that recent developments are helping to create a greener, more attractive and inviting place to stay, play and work. 

"Development of this kind will be welcome news for businesses that already call Sheffield city centre home.
