The Moor Market, Sheffield, UK

Magnus Wills, Leslie Jones Architecture

A new city centre landmark.  The Moor Market, Sheffield is a new 73,000 sqft purpose-built market designed by Leslie Jones Architecture for Sheffield City Council. 

A dramatic brass-clad entrance arch forms a new landmark for Sheffield, increasing visitor numbers to The Moor by a third and initiating further regeneration. 

Inspired by traditional market halls, Leslie Jones have used innovative construction techniques and high quality materials to create a contemporary setting for the market. 

60,000 sq ft of adjoining retail space has also been created for SWIPPT, creating a distinctive retail mix of local traders alongside nationwide brands. 

Arranged to allow a continuous frontage onto The Moor for the adjacent new retail space. A key objective was to maximise the limited frontage onto The Moor. 

This publicly funded project needed to achieve added value within the relatively tight budget of £14.5 million. Initial design stages began in 2009, with planning permission achieved later that year. Work on site started in May 2012 and was completed on time and within budget, for the official opening on 25th November 2013. 

The project makes a significant contribution to revitalising the market hall typology for the 21st Century and presents a fresh approach to high street renewal. 

Sympathetic to the existing urban fabric, the scheme has positioned one of Yorkshire’s largest concentrations of small businesses alongside nationwide brands to create an exciting new shopping and leisure destination.
