The developers of the £28 million Lincoln student accommodation The Gateway have revealed spectacular new views of the city from its roof.

The Lincolnite went for an exclusive peek of the view on March 12, with Lincoln Cathedral dominating the city skyline and scenes of work ongoing on the Lincoln Tank Memorial on the Tritton Road roundabout.

The eight-storey building off Ruston Way is set for an August completion after Jackson & Jackson Developments Ltd took on the build with constructors Kier Group.
