New Era Square has been shortlisted for Outstanding Development of the Year at the Insider SCR Property Awards 2021.
The 430,000 sq ft mixed-use development at St Mary’s Gate, Sheffield, features Grade A workspace, 649 student residences, 12 apartments and two penthouses. While the ground floor boasts and array of new restaurants, global street food outlets and the city’s largest oriental supermarket, all located around a stunning public plaza with iconic panda art installations.
With construction now completed, the scheme has been bucking the trend in terms of leasing, and in recent months has signed up student lettings firm Unihomes – who have taken a full floor in the six-storey commercial block, a medical centre, ultrasound clinic and several new restaurants and cafés – offering everything from modern Japanese to relaxed Nordic cuisine.
The winner of the awards will be unveiled at the Insider SCR Property Awards Dinner on 1 July. If successful, it would be the second year in a row that New Era Square has scooped up a prestigious prize at the event – with Managing Director Jerry Cheung winning Property Personality of the Year in 2020.
“The team and I are proud and delighted to be shortlisted for the Outstanding Development of the Year award,” said Jerry Cheung.
“We see it as recognition for all our hard work and it’s an honour to be considered alongside some other truly fantastic developments across the region.”
