As a key part of Sheffield City Region's innovation district, the Olympic Legacy Park is set to be a world leading health and wellbeing innovation development.
Plans are already well underway at the 35 acre site in the Attercliffe area in Sheffield, which will be home to world class research and innovation, sports, education and health facilities.
The joint venture between public and private sectors, led by Legacy Park Ltd with Sheffield City Council, Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will target elite and professional athletes, amateur competitors, community groups and school children as well as businesses operating in health and wellbeing markets.
Ultimately, the research and development projects conducted at the park, including those at Sheffield Hallam's Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, will contribute towards the health, wellbeing and sports innovations of the future, helping to generate significant cost savings for the public purse.
ekosgen and JLL have been commissioned to produce a Strategic Business Plan for the Olympic Legacy Park, which reflects on success to date and sets out the vision and development opportunities that could be captured and delivered over the next 5-10 years. The business plan which is being developed in consultation with partners such as Westfield Health and Toshiba, will also consider the potential economic, social and community impacts that the scheme can generate, as well as the most appropriate delivery vehicles.
