    This one has been on the cards for a long time now, wanted to do this at night but the opportunity has not yet arisen.

    On the way back to the car from an explore earlier on in the day, the opportunity was there so we took it.

    Looking up the gap in the stairwell we couldn't wait to get to the top so we got in the lift. However we went up to find we had been stumped at the very last hurdle and had to turn back, no roof top action this time :mad

    The next floor down from the roof is also sealed but we managed to take a quick look on this floor. I would say this may be the penthouse but as I know they are looking at extending the height and adding more floors in future; this must be why its empty.

    Hopefully we can get over that final hurdle in future but for now this is as close as we got.

    History:

    Velocity Tower is a development project currently under construction next to the Inner Ring Road in Sheffield City Centre, South Yorkshire, England, overlooking Ecclesall Road. The build is a continuation of a previous design to be built by Cala, titled 'Eclipse'.

    The original plans for the site was for a single tower name Eclipse, the result of a project by Cala Developments and initially designed by Broadway Malyan. These designs called for a charcoal-grey cladded 22 storey tower with a 12 storey brickwork skin wing that was to provide 263 new apartments.

    After successfully selling most of the apartments before construction began - Cala decided that the economic conditions were unfavourable and abandoned the scheme in 2005, causing concern among early investors by putting the land up for sale without a public announcement.

    In December 2008, Velocity Tower - although unfinished - opened its doors to potential tenants. The tower currently has apartments to let on most floors, with the uppermost floors unfinished and a number of access points clad in white painted boards, rather than the glass panels of the remainder of the building.

    On with the shots, sorry about some of the reflections from the glass.

    Hope you all enjoy:)
