Watch the video below for the latest update on the Ipswich Winerack project, as well as the history of its development:
Scaffolding is now in place on the front section of the building and a tower crane has arrived on site. The work is due to be completed by the end of 2020.
The building has been in a semi-constructed condition since the financial crash of 2008. Ipswich Wharf Developments Ltd is now taking on development of the building following £15 million investment through Homes England’s Home Building Fund and £5 million from New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) through its Growing Places Fund.
Chris Starkie, Chief Executive of New Anglia LEP, said: “We are pleased to see work progressing on the Winerack. This project marks a step forward in the transformation of this part of Ipswich and it will help to unlock new investment and development opportunities.”
