London Road, Sheffield, UK
We have a prominent building 5 minutes walk from Sheffield City Centre on the
main ring road, that I think would be a great location for a Costa outlet. The building
has been, and is currently being, used by the Chinese Fireworks Co since 1995 which
has made it a landmark in Sheffield with high visibility and central location. I am the
director and owner of the building.
It is located at 2 London road which has recently been subject to multi-million
pound developments involving key industry players such as new era developments
attracting several multi-million pound investors from china. A £65 million pound
"China Town" has recently been developed with an additional £27 million funding
secured for phase 2 of this project. Planning has also been secured to build an ibis
hotel in addition to a range of multi-story student accommodations. Beyond this, the building is just minutes walk from Sheffield's only Waitrose supermarket and a Lidl branch, whilst being 10-15 minutes walk from Sheffield Hallam University Campus and Sheffield Train station and 20 minutes walk in the opposite direction to Sheffield University. The residential aspect of the area is also developing rapidly - within the vicinity, there are several thousand bed spaces already built and several more thousand currently being built. Recently, the pedestrian area alongside 2 London road premises is the main access way under the subway to the city centre. Please see the attached images and OS plan, street view and google view. The building is the gateway into London Road.
