First look inside finished city centre penthouse apartments

It is hard to believe this was once the former police station in Hull’s Queen’s Gardens.

The huge £22m residential development has seen the large building converted into 94 swanky apartments.

Floors one to three have apartments and four to five are duplex penthouses – and after years of planning and construction here’s the final result.

The “special” development in Hull’s “residential regeneration” is said to take city centre living to “another level”.

After four years under construction, The Glass House in Queen’s Gardens is finished and residents are moving in to the apartments and penthouses which will bring at least 250 people to live in the city centre.

Iguana Developments is said to be “breathing new life” into the city centre with £42m invested in its three developments.

The large city centre landmark is also home to a in-house gym and cinema, private dining, co-working space and atrium with concierge service.

The firm’s managing director Jason Coleman said: “We are thrilled The Glass House is now ready for residents to move in.

“The apartments and penthouses appeal to young professionals and down-sizers, as well as a those who’ve purchased a holiday home – in any case, the ease of city living is on the list of priorities.

“We have delayed the grand opening event until after lockdown, however, viewings are available by private appointment, with My Agent who is managing the sales.”

Mr Coleman was inspired to invest in Hull following City of Culture and hopes the success of Iguana Developments inspires private investors to continue putting money into the area.

“Complemented by work from commercial developers, Hull’s city centre is getting a face-lift,” he said.

“It’s an affordable city to live and work and I am confident we will continue to attract young professionals who will make Hull their home for life.”

Prices for the one, two, three and four-bedroom homes range from £140,000 to £430,000.
