Sheffield Olympic Park


Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is a £100m development across a 30 hectare site which is transforming the eastern quarter of the city.

It is set to become an internationally-recognised Innovation District for health and wellbeing research and learning, plus the location for offices, laboratories, leisure, retail and residential spaces.

The area expects to attract Life Sciences organisations and, in particular, Med Tech sector businesses, in order to become a Life Sciences Opportunity zone that pioneers world-leading health and well-being research and innovation.

Set to deliver a tangible legacy from the London 2012 Olympic Games, Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park will comprise a combination of world class sporting facilities, education, new skills, research and innovation, environmental improvements and opportunities for the local community. The continued success of Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is acting as a catalyst for regeneration of this historic part of Sheffield.

The scheme is being delivered by Legacy Park Ltd, a partnership between Sheffield City Council and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is expected will create 3,500 jobs. Construction is being managed by Scarborough Group International.

Situated just minutes from the M1, 10 minutes from Sheffield train station and within 90 minutes of five international airports, Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is ideally located for occupancy by national and international SME’s and large organisations.
