Hallam Towers – Sheffield – January 2013

The building was initially built to accommodate the mass influx of people arriving for the group stage games that Sheffield held for the 1966 World Cup. It was designed by Nelson Foley of the Trust House Architectural Department, and cost £1 million to build back in 1963. It opened in 1965 – 47 years ago. In 1970, the building was taken over by Trust House Forte, and from 2001 to April 2004 became the Holiday Inn Sheffield West, when it closed. Proposals had been made to transform the buildings into apartments and although planning permission was granted IN 2009, it expires this December.
