Broadland Housing and R G Carter have celebrated reaching the highest point of Canary Quay, a new modern housing development on the River Wensum in Norwich city centre.

Representatives from both organisations marked the milestone by joining each other on the newly poured roof of the nine-storey housing block, close to Norwich City Football Club.

Construction of the 73 one-and-two-bedroom apartments represents Phase Three of the Canary Quay regeneration project which in total is a mix of more than 300 affordable and privately-owned homes, offering modern living space in a desirable riverside location.

Michael Newey, Group Chief Executive of Broadland Housing, said: “We are very excited to see the third building on the Canary Quay site start to take shape.  Being able to stand on the 9th floor and look across the finished homes brings into focus how much work has gone into getting us to this stage. We continue to be grateful for our long-standing partnership with R G Carter to deliver these new homes for Broadland.”

These new 100% affordable homes are expected to be finished next Summer and sit directly opposite apartment blocks Patricia Hollis House, Richard Hawthorn House and Solace, completed in Phase One and Two of the scheme’s construction.

Mario Rackham, Director and General Manager at R G Carter, said: “We’re incredibly proud of this project and our continuing partnership with Broadland Housing. The Canary Quay regeneration is progressing really well and will help transform the riverside area, while providing high-quality housing for the local community for years to come.”
