This block of apartments was originally an office building that has been converted into residential dwellings through the permitted development initiative. Located within the town of Wath upon Dearne in Sheffield this four-floor building was constructed in 1998 as an office complex.

The block is situated at the eastern end of the Dearne Valley where much of the new commercial development has taken place. The Dearne Valley was designated as an enterprise zone in 1995. In that time it has been transformed by the creation of 10,000 new jobs occupying a wide range of new commercial developments.

Given the planned regeneration works in the area, the scheme is ideally positioned to benefit from an ever-growing demand for private rental sector (PRS) accommodation.

The developer acquired the site with a view to build good quality and affordable homes for local residents to be able to rent.

The development is due to be completed in Q3 2020, after which point they will let each of the apartments through a lettings business they own under their group of companies. Their intention is to sell the development as an income generating asset, which they have successfully done many times previously to various funds.

The purchase of the development can be structured in a number of ways depending on the preference of the buyer. Please note that there is a freehold premium of £681,000.
