A site dominated by redundant grain silos is to be transformed to create a development reflecting the past of a former Hanseatic port.
The South Quay development will reflect King's Lynn's historic past
Silos on the South Quay at King's Lynn are to disappear to make way for a luxury hotel, shops and apartments.
A London investment firm hopes work on the scheme will start later this year.
Paul Sheerin, a solicitor acting for the developers, said they want the new development to blend with King's Lynn's historic quayside.
Developers, the Viva Investment Corporation, have not given any information on the projected cost of the scheme but have some definite ideas which they are discussing with the King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council.
"We are going to build a centrepiece in the style of a Hanseatic warehouse which has been refurbished to make apartments.
"The designers want to give the impression that it has always been there although we know in reality that it hasn't."
