Wicker Riverside


The Wicker Riverside is a visually striking development that is just as impressive on the inside.

Tearle Phelan, head of residential development for Knight Frank in Sheffield, said: "The sheer quality of design at Wicker Riverside makes it one of the best residential schemes in Sheffield and it is no surprise that it is performing well despite tough market conditions.

"The development is very design orientated, with granite common areas, airy apartments, wonderful views, spacious balconies and rooftop terraces, all meaning the apartments can be enjoyed inside or out.

"The Wicker area has been largely ignored for a long time, but forward-thinking investors and developers recognised that the area actually presented a fantastic opportunity to create a new community."

The Wicker Riverside development is being carried out by developer Artisan in conjunction with architects Aedas and includes 3,275 ft of retail space and parking for 160 cars, in addition to the flats.

The 10 storey mixed use scheme is part of a project to create a multi-million pound Riverside Quarter, with shops, cafes, bars, outdoor terraces, a five-star Crowne Plaza Hotel and Express by Holiday Inn Hotel, which will be connected to the Wicker Riverside development by a new foot bridge.

Mr Phelan added: "The new Riverside Quarter will be bold and innovative with really top-class contemporary architecture, creating a new distinct identity for the area making it an exciting place to live.

"Wicker Riverside will form an integral part of the overall £1billion masterplan for central Sheffield, linking the riverside area to the city centre and acting as a catalyst for wider regeneration along the whole of the city's central riverside area, which is already being borne out with the improvements made to the surrounding ring road."

A most impressive feature of the development is that it has a beautiful porcelain tiled floor with stairs and lifts ascending to all the apartments and to the communal garden level.
There is video intercom facility, doors leading to all the rooms and wood flooring.

The apartments have fantastic sized living and dining areas, creating the ambiance of city living with defined areas for entertaining, relaxation and the kitchen preparation area.

Within the kitchen preparation area is an extensive range of wall and base units having drawers beneath work surface areas and incorporating a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap and  integrated appliances.
Communal Garden The wow factor to the development is this communal garden area that creates a centrepiece for the apartments and enjoys views out over the skyline of Sheffield.
