Love it or loathe it, it is one of the latest landmark buildings in the town, and has been the subject of considerable comment - to put it mildly.
There are twelve apartments, six one-bedroomed and six two-bedroomed, all with double aspect views. An interesting touch is lockable kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets.
It is an extremely eco-friendly building, so well insulated that it only requires one boiler (plus another back-up) for the whole block. This will partly be achieved by a planted screen of mixed fast-growing climbing plants, which are already sprouting.
Twelve lucky families, couples or singles will soon be occupying these central location apartments, at a weekly rent of either £57 or £62 per week.
Needless to say, they are all taken!
