TODD celebrates topping out of £35million Sheffield student block

TODD Architects is celebrating the topping out of a £35 million, 445 bedroom, purpose built student accommodation building on a prime site in the heart of Sheffield City Centre, adjacent to the Sheffield Hallam University campus.

Called The Gate, the 22 storey building will offer modern, quality student accommodation to support Sheffield’s thriving higher education sector. With a mix of studio and cluster bedrooms, The Gate also has a gym, various common spaces, communal kitchen and study spaces as well as a landscaped roof terrace with unrivalled views across Sheffield.

Working as delivery architect for developer and site owner, McAleer & Rushe, TODD has ensured the project meets the client’s requirements through full design team co-ordination and extensive dialogue with nominated sub-contractors.

“This is a growth sector for us, and we are working on a number of prestigious large scale residential projects throughout the UK. The Gate is an impressive addition to the Cultural Industries Quarter of this vibrant and confident city, as well as providing some of the best student accommodation available.”
