Alan Boswell Group has purchased the building in Rouen Road from media group Archant.

Archant, which publishes the Eastern Daily Press and the Norwich Evening News, will remain in the building leasing one floor.

Archant's executive chairman Simon Bax, said: "We have always said our intention was to remain in the city centre within the heart of our communities and close to the amenities and transport links many of our staff depend on. This view was overwhelmingly supported by staff."

When Archant announced it would be selling its offices in September 2017 plans were initially submitted to demolish the 1960s building and build flats and shops in its place.
