EXMOUTH Dock's tallest building, the £10 million Regatta Court, has been completed - now all the developers have to do is sell them.

Midas Construction completed the 39-flat development, and celebrated with Eagle One Homes Ltd last week.

Ian Pitman, Director, Midas Construction, said: "Midas is delighted to be involved in this scheme which brings together a major local client in Eagle One Homes Ltd with a local contractor.

"This is the sixth development that we have completed for our client in the marina complex."

The topping out celebration is traditionally held when the highest point of a building has been constructed.

Chris Fayers of Eagle Homes, said: "I am delighted that Midas Construction has reached this milestone.

"The building is being constructed using the latest modern methods coupled with traditional concrete frame construction.

"We are delighted after many months of hard work that the building has reached this stage on time and on budget."

However he admitted that finding homebuyers at the Dock's new development may not be all plain sailing:

"Although trading conditions in the residential market place have proved to be tougher than previous years, there is still strong interest from prospective purchasers with a recent reservation of a waterfront apartment at over £750,000.

"Eagle One Homes expects to secure further sales in due course. Exchanges worth a total of over £6 million have already been secured.
