The date when the first details of the Fruit Market homes will be released has been revealed in a development being called "unlike any other" in Hull.
The regeneration of the Fruit Market will see 101 new homes built in the area. It comes after a number of new restaurants and bars have opened in the area, in a redevelopment driven by Wykeland Beal.
Now, the developers have said the 2,000 people who registered an interest in the homes will be able to see the first details later this month in a launch weekend on Saturday, January 20 and Sunday, January 21.
Visitors to the launch will have the opportunity to be among the first people to view the plans for the properties in what developers are calling "a vibrant new community formed as part of Hull's most significant urban regeneration project".
The Wykeland Group and leading housebuilder, Beal Homes, have joined together as Wykeland Beal to breathe new life into the Fruit Market, working in partnership with Hull City Council.

The partners yesterday hailed the launch of the £17 million residential scheme as the latest major chapter in the exciting transformation of the Fruit Market.
Richard Beal, chairman and managing director of Beal Homes, said: "We're excited to announce the launch of Fruit Market residential development and look forward to letting prospective buyers know how they can become part of it.
"This will be a residential development unlike anything seen previously in Hull or East Yorkshire.
"The Fruit Market offers not just a place to live, but a unique lifestyle opportunity - the chance to be part of a new, vibrant community where people love to live, work and play, where residents have everything they need close to hand.
"This development will bring the contemporary lifestyle and energetic vibe of the trendiest areas of major cities such as London, Manchester and Liverpool to Hull, combined with a true sense of community and belonging.
"With the regeneration of the Fruit Market taking root and Hull buoyed by City of Culture, we believe this is the perfect time to offer this new residential and lifestyle opportunity. We've had huge interest in the Fruit Market and we expect the launch to be very well attended."

The launch event will be held from 10am to 5pm on January 20 and 21 in Building C at the @TheDock development, adjacent to the Centre for Digital Innovation (C4DI) tech hub in Queen Street in the Fruit Market.
People attending the launch will be given an overview of the development, view new external and internal images, and receive details of the property types and prices for the first homes released, which are due to be available for occupation from late 2018.
An expert advisor will also be available to guide potential purchasers on mortgages and incentives such as the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, which makes it possible to buy a new home with just a five per cent deposit.
Dominic Gibbons, managing director of Wykeland Group, said: "Our ambition for the Fruit Market is for it to be a place of energy, creativity and opportunity, live with activity morning noon and evening.
"An essential part of that is creating a high-quality residential community within the Fruit Market, bringing further vibrancy and vitality to an area that has been rejuvenated by unprecedented investment.
"The launch of the residential development is a major milestone in a long-term regeneration project which is at the foregront of Hull's reinvention as a great place to live, work and invest."

They will be mostly townhouses and duplex apartments, arranged over two and three storeys.
