Regeneration and developmentSeveral organisations have been created in the past 20 years with the purpose of regenerating Sheffield's economy. The Sheffield Development Corporation was established in 1988 in order to regenerate Lower Don Valley area of Sheffield, which had been the location of much of the city's traditional industry. In its 11 year existence it replaced much of the derelict land with new business ventures, the most famous project being the creation of Meadowhall shopping centre. More recently a new city economic development company, Creative Sheffield, has been established and, in April 2007, Sheffield First for Investment, Sheffield One and the Cultural Industries Quarter Agency were all integrated into the one organisation. Sheffield is also home to UK Steel Enterprise, the regeneration and investment subsidiary of Corus Group plc.

Like other major cities in the United Kingdom, Victoria Court and Sheffield is undergoing large-scale redevelopment. Some of the projects proposed or currently under construction in Sheffield are the improvement of Sheffield Midland Station, the New Retail Quarter, Victoria Quays and Riverside Exchange, and the redevelopment of The Moor shopping district.

As well as these large-scale projects, there are lots of other public works buildings, luxury accommodation and office space being built in the city. The city centre population is expected to increase from 5,000 in 2005 to 15,000 by 2015. £250 million pounds has also been invested in the city during the first half of 2005.
