News: Iliad tops out Renaissance building


At an event held in Rotherham last month, developer Iliad proudly announced the near completion of the Old Market building – part of the first phase of Rotherham’s major All Saints’ Quarter Renaissance project. The Old Market sees main contractor, ISG, build 44 one, two and three bedroom apartments on four storeys with ground-floor retail accommodation built around a raised internal courtyard. With a prominent frontage onto the River Don and in close proximity to the historic All Saints’ Minster, the building is at the core of Rotherham’s Renaissance. The Old Market building has recently been praised when architects for the building, Glenn Howells Architects, scooped the coveted, national ‘Project Winner’ award at the 2007 National Housing Design Awards. Bill Addy, Business Development Director of the Iliad Group said: “The topping out of Old Market marks a significant stage in the physical regeneration of Rotherham. We are very pleased with how well the scheme is progressing and the interest that it is creating locally and nationally. "I think this project is proving to be an excellent example of good practice in terms of how a public/private sector partnership can work successfully to bring about town-centre regeneration.” Addy also discusses the project in this month's Yorkshire Business Insider.
