Grainger plc, the UK’s largest listed residential landlord, has appointed Knight Frank to find tenants for its eye-catching retail units at its newest purpose-built rental development in Sheffield.

In a first of its kind development for Sheffield, Brook Place provides 237 high quality one, two and three bedroomed homes to rent along with a range of resident amenities, including gym, lounge, co-working space, outdoor gardens and terraces, and the three commercial units.

Brook Place is located close to the popular Ecclesall Road in Sheffield and features three high quality ground floor retail units between 1,291 – 3,271 sq ft on the prominent site between Pear Street, Summerfield Street and Napier Street.

John Jarman from the Sheffield office of Knight Frank said: “The homes, which are now available, are likely to attract an audience of 25-35 year-old working professionals, sharers and couples from the local area.

“Therefore the retail units would appeal to retailers wanting to target a dynamic, young population living locally, and also a large office population within a five minute walk.”

The three modern high quality ground floor commercial units at Brook Place are finished to a shell and core specification allowing flexibility for incoming occupiers to make each suite their own.

John added: “They all benefit from being near Ecclesall Road, a vibrant area of the city which is popular with young professionals and students, and are a 5-10 minute walk from the city centre.

“One of the units has a prominent return frontage on the corner of Summerfield Street and Napier Street, and benefits from A1 use class. The two units which front Porter Brook can be combined to accommodate a larger requirements and benefit from A1, A2 & A3 use class.”
