Completed in 1961 Park Hill was intended to provide local authority housing for thousands of people
Asset Information : A174-00004

Completed in 1961, Park Hill was intended to provide local authority housing for thousands of people. Park Hill is one of the most spectacular examples of the Modernist approach to communal living in post-war Britain. Consisting of 995 dwellings, and housing over two thousand people, it occupies an entire hill overlooking Sheffield city centre. The estate consists of huge snake-like blocks which contain the duplex apartments and the estate's famous streets in the sky, (based on the Smithsons' Golden Lane Housing plan of 1952), a bold attempt to preserve the communal benefits of street-life. Park Hill was awarded a Grade 2* listing in 1998. Today Park Hill is being renovated by north-west based Urban Splash.
