Spring start for Plymouth tower building

Oceanique plan
The 357ft (109m) tower development will take about three years to build

Construction of a futuristic 31-storey building in Plymouth city centre could begin next spring.

The £89m Devington Homes Oceanique development near Derry's Cross was approved by planners in May.

Thought to be one of the tallest outside London, the building will include a hotel, flats, student accommodation and space for businesses.

The centrepiece will be a 357ft (109m) curved tower which developers believe will transform Plymouth's skyline.

The scheme is expected to take about three years to complete.
