Weston Tower, Sheffield

History

It is not clear when this building was closed but it appears as though it's last use was as rented office space for different companies on each of it's floors.

During an economic boom, many proposals were made for several areas around Sheffield to undergo significant refurbishment, creating a 'skyscraper city'.

Weston Tower was to become a 23-storey residential tower that also comprised of office space, restaurants and bars, at a cost of £60 million.

Permission was granted in 2006 but the company due to undertake the redevelopment was later dissolved and in 2013 the building as it stands, built in the 1960's, was sold for less than £1 million, with the intention of being redeveloped in to student accommodation.
