The former office block and KFC premises in the heart of Prince of Wales Road has been transformed into almost 80 studio, one and two-bedroom apartments by Regency Residential and Intro Developments.

Before the redevelopment, the building was empty for some time, but the site has previously been used as British Rail offices and was once a dance hall known as the Grosvenor Rooms, where The Beatles performed in May 1963.

Several apartments have recently gone on the market with Abbotts estate agents, with prices starting from £140,000.

Abbotts describe the flats as “ideal rental properties”.

They said: “Situated on one of the primary routes in and out of the city centre, Grosvenor house is a development of one and two bed apartment conversions over six floors.

“The development is in an excellent position to take advantage of Norwich’s expanding infrastructure and local amenities.”
