THE CITADEL SHEFFIELD
Proposed Retail Development
Client: Tandum Properties
The Citadel was built on behalf of the Salvation Army. It served as their headquarters until 1999 when they relocated to new premises and since then the building has since stood empty. The proposals to convert this Grade II listed building will enable this building to be restored and saved as and important part of Sheffield's heritage for generations to come.
The Citadel is located in the centre of Sheffield within an already established shopping district, adjacent to the area soon to become the “New Retail Quarter”.
The proposals aim to modernise the interior of the building, making it suitable for use as a retail unit whilst maintaining the important architectural features which give the building its character.
Changes are to be made to the principal elevation facing onto Cross Burgess Street in order to increase the amount of shop display area and to distinguish the building as a retail unit.
