Mountford Pigott has been retained by Plutus Estates as architects for the design of a major mixed-use development at Grafton Way, Ipswich. The scheme comprises a mixture of houses and apartments to provide over 250 new homes as well as a hotel, restaurants and a gym. The site is ideally located for commuters, a short walk away from Ipswich train station with a long stretch of frontage to the River Orwell. Following a successful public consultation the design concept is being developed for a full planning application submission in late spring 2017. An exhibition to introduce the scheme to the local community took place in February and was reported in the Ipswich Star.
