New life for historic Loxley Valley mill site
Date: 02/08/2012. Story submitted by: ChrisSavage
One of Sheffield’s most historic industrial sites will be developed for luxury housing designed by Mowbray Street architects, Coda Studios.
The Loxley Works site, off Loxley Road, dates back to the 18th century and the dawn of the Industrial Revolution.
The site was abandoned many years ago and is now a scar in the Loxley Valley’s precious Green Belt.
But award winning Sheffield architectural design consultancy Coda Studios has had plans approved by Sheffield Council’s planning department that will preserve the site’s central industrial building and bring it to fresh life.
The redundant mill building was originally constructed in the late 19th century asa small-scale rolling mill during the development of steel works in the area.
The plans for its conversion include the creation of 10 loft-style houses, using the industrial features of the site.
Coda managing director, David Cross, said: “This is going to be a very difficult and challenging project, a totally unique development.
“We will be creating loft style dwellings, using the original industrial features but at the same time remaining completely true to the Green Belt setting as well as saving the history and heritage of the area.
“We feel our design team has created something totally unique for this area of Sheffield.”
