Reaching New Heights

If you’re looking for stylish city-centre living in Sheffield, you won’t get much better than the recently opened Loxley Heights development on Rockingham Street. Exposed spoke to Danielle Nicholson, General Manager at Fresh, to get the lowdown on this exciting new living space…

Where are we at with the development as things stand?

Loxley Heights is now open and we welcomed our first residents at the beginning of May.  The interest has been phenomenal and there are just a few one- and two-bedroom apartments still available to rent.  We’ve just released our studios which are all furnished and provide fantastic value for money, especially for young professionals, keyworkers and recent graduates starting their first job in the city.

Tell us a little bit about the development and the community you’re building in Sheffield?

Loxley Heights is home to 132 rental studios and apartments. Each studio or apartment is expertly designed to maximise space and light and the clever layout of our studios means that you have distinct living and sleeping areas. Residents at Loxley Heights also get exclusive use of our social spaces including a stunning sky lounge, roof terrace and courtyard, plus you also get complimentary access to facilities at the neighbouring Steelworks property, which includes the gym, fitness room, karaoke & media lounges.

But Loxley Heights is much more than just apartments and facilities, we’re building a really friendly and inclusive community. Our dedicated residents’ team are on-site 6 days a week and we host regular clubs, socials and experiences that are all included in your rent. So, one day you might be at a book club and the next day wine tasting on our roof terrace! We’re just planning our first exciting social which includes live music and a mixologist, all with an Ibiza vibe. We can’t wait!

What makes Loxley Heights different from other developments in the city?

Where to start….  Unlike lots of rentals, we welcome pets for a small monthly charge. Our tenancies are flexible from anything between 6 months and 3 years, or more. Superfast internet, access to all our facilities plus our events and clubs are included in your rent. We’ve got an app where you can view your account details and report any maintenance, which is then carried out by our on-site maintenance technician.

Who do you feel is the ideal candidate for the development and what are the benefits of living here, rather than looking at other areas of the city?

We’ve already got a varied mix of residents living with us. We’re really central so lots of our residents work in the city centre or at the hospitals and universities, which are approximately a 5 to 15 minute walk away.  If you’re looking for stylish urban living and a place where you can have your own space, but equally meet your neighbours and make new friends, then Loxley Heights is right for you.

How does Loxley Heights meet the needs of a modern-day workforce and the shift towards a culture of working from home?

We know that not everyone fits the 9 to 5 lifestyle and that working life has changed drastically recently!  If you’re looking to WFH we offer a range of co-working spaces where you can chill out with your laptop. Plus we have a separate meeting room which you can book for that all important work call. Our clubs and socials are also programmed around our residents’ working patterns so no one misses out.

What are the fundamental factors in building a strong mixed community around the area?

We believe in giving people the space and opportunity to meet likeminded people who live in the same property.  Our residents’ team are dedicated to facilitating this and they understand that our residents all want different things from their rental experience. One person might love coming along to our clubs, another might just want a quick chat with our General Manager when they pass through reception. It’s a new approach to renting centred around you. We also work with the wider community, promoting local businesses to our residents and using local suppliers whenever we can.

How would you like Loxley Heights to be seen in five years’ time?

Our wish is that Loxley Heights will have built a really strong reputation amongst Sheffield renters for quality homes that offer a safe and friendly environment and great value for money.
