Planning approval was given last August for 44 flats to be created in the building, which was once BT's local headquarters and known as Telephone House.

After it was revamped and renamed Vantage House - because of its views - it belonged to Norfolk County Council.

The views from the top of the building include all the main Norwich landmarks including the cathedral, the castle, St Peter Mountergate, the Bishop's palace and Westlegate Tower. But the views stretch right out to wind turbines in the distance.

Samuel Le Good, partner at AbbotFox, which is handling the rental of the apartments and the sale of the penthouses, said: "Build to rent is becoming popular because of the increased need for rental accommodation in the city. 

"However, the top floor of penthouses offers something really special for Norwich."
