Incredible new video shows how stunning Glass House apartments in heart of Hull will look

The developers of a huge residential scheme have released an amazing video showing what it will look like inside.

Those behind the scheme, Iguana Developments, believe the former police station will be the crowning glory of the city centre.

The development, named The Glass House, has been ongoing for four years and should be completed by March next year.

Now a public event will be held later this month allowing people to view the plans, videos and images and make a reservation on one of the 94 apartments if it takes their fancy.

The video shows the incredible rooms and the facilities which includes a gym and a cinema.

Iguana Developments' managing director, Jason Coleman, said: “It has been four years in the making but we are very proud of this development.

“To have such an iconic building in the very heart of city centre yet in a tranquil south facing setting overlooking Queen’s Gardens makes it utterly unique.

“Our developments just keep getting better and better and we guarantee that buyers will not be disappointed with The Glass House.

“We aim for our brand to be synonymous with quality and this development raises the bar on our trademark smart amenities, which make chic city living so attractive.”

The facilities available in the new apartment block are staggering and tailored to professionals who may want to work from home.

Mr Coleman said: “We like to avoid cramming in lots of apartments and instead increase the square footage of each home and maximise space throughout the building.

“There is a two-storey reception atrium with concierge and in the basement we have located a large fully equipped gym, gaming room and cinema.

“For the first time we have also put in a private dining room to seat up to 14 people with kitchen facilities and a large co-working office space.

“Developments in London have trialled these types of facilities to enhance the experience of city apartments and if it’s good enough for our capital, it’s good enough for Hull.

“The co-working area is for residents who want to work from home but don’t necessarily want to work alone in their apartment. This helps us to create a community atmosphere for people to get to know each other and maybe even the opportunity to do some business networking.”

The development will also include a high-speed internet connection

Mr Coleman said: “Two key components are the future-proofed fibre optic internet with 1000mpbs capability plugged into each apartment.

“Installed by Pure Broadband, residents do not share bandwidth with other properties in the area. There is also undercroft parking for 105 vehicles.

“All of the apartments are amazing and filled with natural light but the crowning glory is the duplex penthouses.

“These split level apartments have terraces around the outside, en-suites for each bedroom and unrivalled views of Queen’s Gardens - up above the trees, it allows the outside, in.”

Iguana Developments is inviting people to Ferens Art Gallery on Saturday, September 28 at 10am to view plans, videos and interior images.

It will also be a chance to meet the developer and ask questions in person as well as make reservations on any of the 94 apartments and penthouses available.

Mr Coleman said: “At the open day we will announce the pricing structure of the 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom park-facing apartments which are aimed at owner-occupiers to create a six-star experience in terms of location and exciting new features.”

Iguana Developments other ventures has seen it invest almost £40m to refurbish Essex House on Manor Street, Liberty House on Liberty Lane and now The Glass House in Queens Gardens since 2015.

The main elevation on Dock Avenue is fully glazed and features a two-storey atrium entrance, while most apartments will have their own balcony and the penthouses have roof terraces.

Queen’s Dock Avenue is to be fully pedestrianised, linking The Glass House directly to Queens Gardens which itself is receiving a £2.5m facelift starting in spring 2020.
