“Little Chicago” Kelham Island

May 23, 2024

Copper St.

By Sky House

Historically dubbed ‘Little Chicago’ during the Sheffield Gang wars, this project will knit the development into narrow and steep streets forming a new characterful and contextual neighbourhood that will expand on the great work built in Kelham Island!

The site spans across Copper Street and Trinity Street in Furnace Hill, a steep and characterful neighbourhood in the north of the city centre, and is currently vacant and used for car parking.

The scheme will deliver a range of new homes including 32no 1 and 2 bed apartments alongside 14no 2 and 3 bed homes

There will be a ground-floor commercial unit on the corner, and an old workshop will also be retained and reused for independent business space.
