Cutting-edge developments in South Yorkshire have been shortlisted for property awards.

Sheffield Hallam University’s sports park, Doncaster’s civic offices and cultural quarter, SOAR Works and the Rivelin Water Treatment Works are all in line for a gong at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Pro Yorkshire Awards.

The awards celebrate the best in land, property and construction projects and recognise the most talented property professionals.

Doncaster’s Civic Offices have been recognised in the Commercial category, while the cultural quarter joins the SOAR Works enterprise centre, Parson Cross, in the Regeneration category.

SOAR Works is also shortlisted in the Community Benefit category along with Sheffield Hallam University sports park.

In addition, the sports park appears in the Tourism and Leisure section.

The Rivelin Water Treatment Works, Manchester Road, are in the Infrastructure category.

Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones said she was delighted to hear the council’s £300m project to transform the Waterdale area of town had made the shortlist.

Sheffield Hallam University Vice-Chancellor Professor Philip Jones said: “This sports park is one of the best outdoor multi-sports facilities in Yorkshire, and will benefit not only our students, but the community teams that use it as well.”

The awards ceremony will take place on May 23.
