DLA Piper puts final touches on Elshaw House move

Fit-out will be completed this spring on 17,000 sq ft, accounting for the top two floors of the office building in Sheffield’s £470m Heart of the City development.

Elshaw House is described as Sheffield City Council’s new zero carbon-ready office building. Queensberry is the council’s development partner.

Along with the two floors of office space, the DLA space includes an adjoining private terrace on the top floor.

Located on Carver Street, next to Pound’s Park, Elshaw House is tipped to achieve a five-star BREEAM green energy rating, making it a key part of the council’s green goals.

Additionally, Elshaw House has also recently achieved an ‘excellent’ five-star NABERS UK rating due to its lean design, providing a structure with 40% lower than average carbon usage. This places it in the top 1% of office buildings in the UK for energy efficiency.

Cllr Ben Miskell, chair of the transport, regeneration and climate policy committee at Sheffield City Council, said: “We are thrilled that DLA Piper has signed a lease on Elshaw House. It is one of the world’s largest law firms. For such an established business to reaffirm its commitment to the city shows a real confidence in everything we’re doing to drive Sheffield forwards and continue growing our economy.

“Elshaw House represents the very best in office space and is delivering new headline rents for Sheffield. Alongside the world class Pound’s Park, Grosvenor House – home to HSBC and CMS – and Europe’s largest food hall, we’re creating a truly transformational new city centre district.”

Andrew Davison, project director at Queensberry, added: “In our opinion, DLA Piper has secured the best office space in South Yorkshire, with unrivalled sustainability, location and employee wellbeing benefits.

“World class commercial spaces like this are helping to take Sheffield to the next level on the national stage.

“Interest in the other floors in Elshaw House is incredibly high and the ground floor retail and F&B spaces are also attracting potential occupants.”

Elshaw House has six ground floor units suitable for retail or food and drink venues, complementing the seven storeys of  workspace above.
