Seems like a sensible use - just up the road from the other recent addition? The same principle has been applied by the council in Sheffield recently; increase the supply of city-centre based student accomodation to try and open up the suburban housing markets to families and young professionals again.

I just came back from a visit to Ipswich, not sure if they even have a thread? does anyone know if the new tall building by the Waterfront/Mill building still being built? It looked a bit like an empty shell

There is an Ipswich Thread, I'm pretty sure it's near the top of this main Projects&Construction page.

Last I heard there are a one or two that have stalled, mid-construction.

They are starting to build the St Anne's Quarter in Norwich. I walked past there the other day and saw them starting on the site, which has remained empty since the old brewery was demolished in 2003.

Take a look at the Orbit Homes St Anne's Wharf PDF

A very 'blocky' urban quarter is taking shape!

And I know I won't be popular in the streets of the East Anglian capital (& the one-time second largest/most important city in the kingdom) for saying this but these blocks could've reduced their 'footprints' and at least doubled in height.

There is a case for a height increase in Norwich, less outward sprawl!

A planning application was submitted in June for new student flats up to 13 storeys on the old Mecca Bingo site. Can't post links yet but more info is on the Alumno website under news.
