HSBC employees have chosen their preferred name for the bank’s new office, which is being built as part of the new Sheffield Retail Quarter.
The bank’s employees opted for Grosvenor House as the name for the new office celebrating the heritage of the site, which used to be occupied by the Grosvenor House Hotel.
HSBC employees in Sheffield will be relocated from their current office space at Griffin House to Grosvenor House in 2019 after the banking giant signed as the anchor tenant on a 15-year lease, committing them to Sheffield city centre.
The new address for HSBC’s office will be Grosvenor House, No.1 Wellington Street.
The main office entrance located on the corner of Wellington Street and Cambridge Street, and another entrance facing onto a new area of public realm at Charter Square. The building will also include retail space and shop fronts will be primarily located on Cambridge Street and also the important corner where Pinstone Street meets Furnival Gate.
Councillor Mazher Iqbal, cabinet member for business and investment at Sheffield City Council said: “We’re delighted that employees at HSBC have acknowledged the Grosvenor House Hotel in this way. It links the building’s future perfectly with its past.
“We have worked closely with HSBC for some time now on the design of its new office space.
“Their team has been a pleasure to work with and it is fantastic that HSBC has committed to our city centre as it is a vitally important employer with a proud history in our city.”
James Emmett, chief operating officer at HSBC Bank, said: “Our colleagues overwhelmingly voted for Grosvenor House as the name of our new home in Sheffield. The city is an important regional hub for our IT operations and we are delighted that the construction of our new office is progressing well.”
