The Least

congested city in the UK, bar none.

West Bar Sheffield

Already home to one of Sheffield’s largest inward investments, The Home Office, Top 50 law firm Irwin Mitchell, and the Crown and Family Courts.

The new economic destination

West Bar was made possible with the completion of Sheffield’s Inner Ring Road in 2007, which created the opportunity to develop an exciting accessible new business address at the heart of one of the UK’s largest cities.

City Centre North

West Bar comprises over 7 acres of development land assembled by Urbo to create an exciting new neighbourhood. This provides a unique opportunity to complete a comprehensive mixed-use area between ring road and River Don. When finished the wider West Bar area will provide well over 10,000 jobs, nearly 1000 apartments and a network of cafes, bars and other facilities all arranged around attractive landscaped streets and squares.

West Bar also provides a vital link between its adjacent neighbourhoods, thriving Kelham Island, an emerging revitalised Castlegate and the established Cathedral Quarter in the northern sector of Sheffield City Centre.

Road

Junction 33 of the M1 motorway is a 5 minute drive, providing easy access to all other major UK cities and key airports

Public

Sheffield is one of the few cities to have a tram system as a key element of its public transport.

Rail

Sheffield Railway Station is only a 10 minute walk or a short taxi ride away. Travel time to London from Sheffield is only just over two hours, with trains running to the capital every 30 minutes.

Air

Five international airports are accessible within an hour’s travelling time – Manchester, Leeds-Bradford, East Midlands, Doncaster-Sheffield and Humberside.

“West Bar Square represents a very significant step forward in the regeneration of Sheffield’s Riverside Business District which is becoming a major area for new employment. It will bring long vacant sites into productive use and also link the growing new residential areas at Kelham Island and Wicker into the City Centre.”
