Kelham Riverside is a new mixed use riverside development in Sheffield's Kelham Quarter, England. It is located to the north-western edge of the city centre. The development, by Raven Group in collaboration with sheffield based architects AXIS Architecture, involves the creation of new mixed use buildings forming apartments, bars & restaurants, and commercial space on the riverside site of former workshops, long since demolished. The development is part of an ongoing regeneration of the area by AXIS and others, which started in the 1990's with Cornish Place. This development is intended to create a desirable place to live with a brand new public square, and continuation of the Don riverside walk project.
The new square is a large civic space intended to give the area a new urban social focus and contribute to creating a sense of place for the quarter by hosting events and becoming a destination for the area.
