There have been some exciting developments on the co-working scene in Sheffield since my last post.
Union St. has opened and is attracting an interesting variety of tenants. I visited the space before it opened but need to go back and see how things are shaping up. Visit the Union St website here.
Meanwhile, The RoCo on Glossop Road is going to be “Sheffield’s first dedicated co-operative development built exclusively for the next wave of creators, artists, designers and makers”. They are transforming 7 Grade II listed buildings into a 17,000 sqft site including art and design retail spaces, studios and co-working, galleries, a make house and maker shed, a cafe bar and deli and a range of meeting and event spaces. They have already secured over £650k of investment and have now launched a community share offer to raise the final slice of funding. The website is being updated and should be live again on 18th August.
