Planning permission has been achieved for the Fusion Students development comprising over 810 student residences. The proposals will redevelop the former Stokes Tiles site, regenerating a prime location in Sheffield City Centre. The tallest building, a landmark tower to the corner of Fitzwilliam Street, will rise to 17 storeys. A highly sustainable development, premium quality student accommodation will be provided within walking distance of both the city centre and University campuses.
The proposals incorporate Fusion’s Tier 1 and Tier 2 accommodation including a range of cluster bedrooms, social studios and premium one-bedroom apartments. Residents will benefit from a central vibrant social hub, to include flexible learning and break out spaces, cinema, private dining and complimented by extensive leisure/gym facilities, including an outdoor basketball court and table tennis area.
The residences are scheduled for opening Summer 2021.
