About Park Hill

Park Hill is a Grade II* listed building in Sheffield, United Kingdom. Built between 1957 and 1961, Park Hill attracts considerable architectural and social history interest. Following a period of decline and neglect, Park Hill is currently undergoing a striking redevelopment and entering a new phase in its history. Renovated, reimagined and reborn as a 21st Century urban community, Park Hill still radiates the enthusiasm and optimism of its original residents and visionary architects. #LoveParkHill
