    This is UGLY.

    Perhaps Ipswich Society and sister organisation Ipswich Maritime Trust can finally withdraw their support for this area?

    Is this even Ipswich? I do not recognise it.

    What is even heritage anymore? The water? The Victorian wet dock shape? Maybe a couple of old boats... the rest are modern floating caravans and the awful modern architecture for flats!

    Has to be better than the above of course... so that must be good?!

    In the middle gap is the wonderful maritime window museum... what a location! Even if you aren't keen on the window museum it is hard to argue that isn't the best part of this photo. Even the art project is suffering from tatty hoarding wear and tear.

    The delays aren't helping... there are calls to outlaw ground rents for housing and flats... (should have never been allowed) this is a considerable lost amount of revenue with the delays this is taking, however, not to fear the developer isn't personally investing anything into the project. I am sure there is £100m+ in the full project... with £20m of possible interest free loans, he is laughing all the way to the bank...

    It will go ahead as he has £20m of public funds to finance it. Whether this will be January 2018 or 2020 who knows? I know they recently applied to change the cladding style. It looks absolutely awful.

    I guess that is what the "never ending" part is about... it will remain there forever :D Maybe 50 years? 100 years? We won't ever learn that it finally gets torn down lol

    I never understood the point of it as it doesn't go that far...
