The Moor, a retail area in Sheffield’s city centre, struggled as stores closed and new out-of-town destinations attracted shoppers away from the high street. Our retail-led regeneration masterplan revitalises the site with a new landmark market building, a mix of leisure uses and a high-quality public realm.
The old Castle Market has been replaced with a new iconic shopping destination – The Moor Market. The 73,000 sq ft landmark building includes 60,000 sq ft of retail space for over 180 market stalls for local traders. The scheme also features a multi-screen cinema, nine new restaurants and additional retail space.
The Market’s distinctive design with its curved glazing and brass-clad entrance is a modern take on traditional European markets. The façade features alternating panels of western red cedar basket-weave cladding and projecting courses of red brickwork. Inside is light and bright with laminated timber trusses and beams bringing texture and warmth, inviting shoppers to spend a little more time in The Moor.
“The Moor now successfully competes with out-of-town schemes to draw from a wider catchment, and Sheffield has begun to regain its place as a major regional shopping destination.”Lee Pope, Director
