Development next to Queens Gardens is expected to be completed in March next year.
A hotly anticipated Hull apartment development will be revealed at a launch event at the Ferens Art Gallery.
The luxury Glass House complex next to Queens Gardens is expected to be completed in March next year.
And now Iguana Developments, the Hull firm behind the project, is inviting people to get a first look inside the complex.
The firm will be putting plans and interior CGI images on show at the Ferens on Saturday 28 September at 10am.
Watch a video tour of the Glass House below:
The open day will also reveal the pricing structure of the one, two, three and four-bedroom park-facing apartments.
Guests will be given the chance to meet the developer and make reservations for the 94 luxury apartments and penthouses.

The building on the site of the former Queens Gardens Police Station has been stripped back to a concrete shell and had two storeys added, with the outside being fully glazed.
Its basement will have a large gym, cinema, private dining room with kitchen facilities and a large co-working office space. The development also has underground parking for 105 vehicles.

It has "future-proofed" broadband with 1000mpbs capability plugged into each apartment. Installed by Pure Broadband, it means residents do not share bandwidth with other properties in the area.
The duplex penthouses are split-level apartments with terraces outside, en-suite bathrooms on each bedroom and south-facing views of Queens Gardens.

Councillor Daren Hale, Hull City Council Deputy Leader and portfolio holder for planning, land and property, said: "This development represents another exciting city centre conversion following on from the success of K2 and Essex House.
“The developer has worked very closely with both the council’s planning and building control teams to ensure the scheme provides high-quality spacious accommodation on a prime site in the city centre and we hope to see our continued working with Iguana Developments as they continue to invest in high-end city centre accommodation.”

The project will see Queens Dock Avenue pedestrianised, linking The Glass House directly to Queens Gardens, which is receiving a £4.3m facelift starting next year.
Jason Coleman, managing director of Iguana Developments, said: “We aim for our brand to be synonymous with quality and this development raises the bar on our trademark smart amenities, which make city living so chic.
“We like to avoid cramming in lots of apartments and instead increase the square footage of each home and maximise space throughout the building.
"Developments in London and other large cities around the UK provide these types of facilities to enhance the experience of city apartments and if its good enough for our capital, its good enough for Hull."
