Work underway on new Tata warehouse to make way for Fox Valley development
Work has started on the brand new Tata Steel warehouse which is being delivered as part of the £42 million Fox Valley development in Stocksbridge, north Sheffield.
The mixed use scheme is being developed on former steel works land off Manchester Road in Stocksbridge – part of the site is currently in use as a steel stockyard by Tata Steel.
And the first phase of work for the contractors Henry Boot is to build a brand new steel warehouse to relocate the stockyard and free up the land for the Fox Valley development, enabling work to start on the main part of the site later this year.
The Henry Boot team have now moved on to the warehouse site near Gate One in Stocksbridge and started to prepare the ground for the new warehouse building which is being developed there.
Once the new warehouse has been completed later this year, Henry Boot Construction can then move onto the main retail and leisure site to start work on creating a new commercial heart in this part of north Sheffield which will bring up to 900 new jobs to the area.
Head of Communications at Dransfield Properties, Amanda Holmes, said: “This has been a project we have been working on for a good number of years so it’s fantastic to see things moving on site now.
"Henry Boot have established their offices at the warehouse site and will also have a base at the retail site off Manchester Road."
The development, due to be completed early in 2016, will deliver;
• A new link road to the A616 Sheffield to Manchester Road
• New high spec office space
• A new 635 space car park
• Retail, restaurant and café units anchored by a 63,000 sq. ft. Tesco store
• High quality public realm area and landscaping as well as strong pedestrian links with Manchester Rd
• A new housing development neighbouring the main retail and commercial development
The development is being brought forward by the award winning retail developers Dransfield Properties, based in Barnsley.
Dransfield Properties has received an investment of £8,111,040 from the Yorkshire and Humber ERDF Programme 2007- 2013, which is managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government to bring forward the Fox Valley project.
