Work has begun on a new £20 million development on Lincoln’s waterfront, which is expected to create in excess of 100 jobs.
The development is the first of its kind in nearly nine years in the city.
It will consist of 69 luxury private apartments and three new restaurants in the former Mouchel and Viking House, which previously housed Job Centre Plus.
Completion of the restaurants is expected around Easter 2017 with the apartments shortly following in the Autumn.
Lincoln-based Jackson & Jackson Developments Ltd, working in partnership with Richardsons Capital, are overseeing construction of the development and are currently in discussions with four to five national brands, which are keen to have a presence in the city.
Lindum Group will be working on the shell and core construction, whilst LGG Projects work on the internal fittings and fixtures.
Director of Jackson & Jackson Dominik Jackson said: “It’s great to be on site today and see the project come to life.
The apartments will be the first city living opportunity delivered in Lincoln for nearly nine years, offering a high standard of living with exceptional views over the city.
When compared to Jackson & Jackson’s other projects, Dominik said that One The Brayford is of high importance due to its prominent position within the city.
“It is a great opportunity to tidy up this end of the Brayford, which has lagged behind the rest of it for the last five to 10 years,” he said.
