There are currently 86 apartments up for grabs with 250 in the first phase and eventually 430, along with seven townhouses.

St Anne's Wharf, a former brewery industrial site between King Street and the River Wensum, had stood empty since 1999 before it was bought by Orbit Homes in 2014. Work began on the first homes in February.

Tom Amis, from Savills in Norwich, which is selling 21 river-facing apartments, including the penthouse, said: "St Anne's Quarter is a spectacular collection of contemporary, high specification apartments offering the very best in city living with some great riverside views.

"We have already had plenty of interest from a real mix of purchasers - including first-time buyers, downsizers and investors - all of whom are attracted by what Norwich has to offer. Whether that's its fine selection of national and independent retailers, its wealth of restaurants and cafes or its vibrant night life, there's something that appeals to everyone."

The scheme will include 33 homes for affordable rent, 66 for 'build to rent' designed not to be sold and around 80 for shared ownership as well as seven commercial units.

Plans are also for a riverside plaza which will be home to two restaurants.

Savills are selling apartments ranging in size and price from £315,000 to £450,000. All apartments include fully decked and glazed balconies or terraces and allocated on-site parking with stunning skyline views. A typical apartment, offering two bedrooms, priced at £365,000 is on the third floor and has a kitchen/living room and two bath/shower rooms.

Work was delayed on the site back in 2015 after an archaelogical dig found pottery and oyster shells dating to the 13th century along with coins from a medieval St Augustine friary, and the remnants of a timber jetty thought to have been used to bring Norman stone into Norwich for the construction of the city's castle and cathedral.
