Wicker Riverside – Sheffield

Shef-Wicker-1-15-6-08

Not exactly on my top favourite list of new architecture but this development fronting the River Don, in the Wicker district, is at least one of the more interesting recent Sheffield developments.  The mixed-use building by Aedas was built by developer Artisan.  The curve-fronted tower under construction (to the left) is the 16-storey iquarter residential development by urbani.  This is on the site of the former Hancock & Lant carpet and furniture warehouse which was unfortunately demolished to enable this project; it would be very nice to see more adaptive reuse projects in Sheffield city centre.
