    • Profile photo of Ipswi The Link scrapped plan another nail in Ipswich waterfront coffin by Ipswi.

      Archant’s old offices in Lower Brook Street were to be turned into “The Link” – an architecturally brilliant mixed office, retail, leisure, hotel and multi-storey car park development. Penn Commercial as agent and Wrenbridge as developer. Not an greyfriars disaster. Except, aiming for the floor, Ipswich is to get retirement housing development instead. The Link wasn’t that ambitious. CGI drawings hint at a Waitrose…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Waterfront Town dream has died by Ipswi.

      It is of great sadness to reveal the Ipswich Waterfront Town dream has died after 15 years in the making. The visionaries (Ipswich Vision Group) have deviated from the original planning intention and are desperately trying to do something within their powers to stay in power. These public-funded clowns won’t be giving up however; perseverance is a good quality but so is knowing when it is time to give up! Being stubborn to collect miniatur…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Stunning entrance gateway to Ipswich Waterfront by Ipswi.

      Almost 3 years ago Ipswich Borough Council held an design competition to create a “stunning entrance” to the Ipswich Waterfront from Stoke Bridge end. At the time, Ipswich residents weren’t convinced and ever since New Year 2015 it appears this has all disappeared to be forgotten about. Ipswich Borough Council Press releases/news article 2014:- Plan for waterfront gateway Ipswich Borough Council is set to step in to kick-start …

      Ipswich Waterfront-based University of Suffolk has entered the Complete University Guide for the first time. Placed at 129 it is nothing to write home about however due to the newness of the university, it can only really climb the table (or so we all hope!). Academics have said this is due to not being able to submit data for all the categories. University of Suffolk joins Complete University Guide 2018 in last place, above Wrexham Glyndwr (…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ben Gummers Wine Rack U-turn by Ipswi.

      So Ipswich MP Ben Gummer was instrumental into securing the £20m investment to complete Regatta Quay “Wine Rack” but he didn’t always see it as important.

Why the change of heart?EMPTY BUILDING MAY NEVER BE COMPLETED 23RD JULY 2011 | EAST ANGLIAN DAILY TIMES The empty skeleton of a huge developme…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Waterfront by Ipswi.

      Ipswich Waterfront: Time to pull the plug? For many the Ipswich Waterfront is a 21st century project but digging into the history a little, the project is over 30 years old with early steps in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and despite being the sole tourism focus for Ipswich town we have very little to show for it. Ever since the Star Lane gyratory was built, alternative uses for the Wet Dock were sought. This included early developments of re…
