News: Iliad’s Rotherham All Saints’ regeneration scheme gains planning approval


Liverpool based developer Iliad has successfully gained planning approval for All Saints’ building - the next project in the ambitious multi-million pound Renaissance plan to regenerate the heart of Rotherham town centre. Iliad already has outline planning permission to demolish the existing All Saints’ building and replace it with a contemporary four-storey building that will comprise two/three levels of office accommodation above prime retail space and create nearly 12,000 sq ft of retail/leisure space, 33,000sq ft of office space and 49 new lower-ground floor car parking spaces. Fronting All Saints’ Square and Rotherham Minster, All Saints’ building will use a palette of Rotherham Red sandstone and brickwork in a confident and contemporary manner that will complement its setting in a conservation area. The building is designed by architects, Falconer Chester Hall, and is set to achieve an environmental rating of excellent from BREEAM. Bill Addy, Development Director for Iliad said: "The approval of All Saints’ building represents another milestone in promoting the regeneration of Rotherham. With its close proximity to Rotherham Minster it was extremely important that the All Saints’ building was sympathetic to its surroundings and fitted in accordingly and we are delighted to have achieved this successfully." Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Development Services, Cllr Gerald Smith said: "The Renaissance programme is well under way and the new All Saints’ building will add another iconic development, providing the town with much needed quality office space as well as presenting another attractive, and hopefully award winning, building that complements the town centres proudest jewel – the Minster." Two of Iliad’s current projects in Rotherham are nearing completion and work will commence on All Saints’ building and Turnpike Wharf (subject to planning permission) early in 2009.
