Approval for New Era Square

Yesterday New Era Square was unanimously approved by Sheffield City Councillors.  Phase 1 is due to begin this summer, with a target to complete the entire scheme in three years. The site off St Mary’s Road and Bramall Lane will include a business incubator for start-up firms with exhibition hall. Phase 1 – which involves major Chinese investment – will include a 21-storey tower of flats for 700 students as well as private apartments above a public square, shops and offices.

“We are absolutely delighted that New Era Square has been granted planning approval. This is the culmination of many years of hard work so it is the best possible news we could have hoped for.”
Jerry Cheung, managing director of New Era Development (UK) Ltd

The square and surrounding landscape  has been design to be a robust and high quality. The style which stems from Chinese design, but remain sensitive to Sheffield vernacular. Weddles uniquely offers this service, having been prominent designers in China for the last 5 years, and over 55 year in Sheffield.

New Era Square is a landmark development for the city of Sheffield that will see the area transformed into a cosmopolitan, international, multi-cultural square which is available to all. The area will become a central point for the whole community – something that will bring people together.

Speaking at the time of the project’s launch, Deputy Prime Minister and Sheffield Hallam MP Nick Clegg, said: “As a local MP I believe that the New Era Development is an outstanding chance to move our city forward and build on our strong business relationship with China.”
