These images show how a boarded-off Beverley site will be transformed into luxury retirement homes.
Work is about to start on the 28 McCarthy & Stone retirement apartments at a leafy site in Molescroft Road.
The site has been boarded off since the former Molescroft Court care home was demolished last year.
Development will now get under way after planning consent for the complex of one and two-bed apartments was approved by East Riding Council.
East Riding ward Councillor Denis Healy has welcomed the start of work, more than a year after the ex-care home shut.
He says: “There was a lot of concern last year about the demolition of the house there but I think people accepted it was going to happen.

“People are looking forward to seeing those hoardings removed and a high quality development for retired people in all its glory.
“Beverley is a great town to be in and I think the development will attract people who will find Beverley a great place to live.”
McCarthy and Stone says the apartment complex, for people aged 55 and over, is expected to welcome its first homeowners in summer 2019.
Liz Green, for McCarthy and Stone North East, says: “Our Beverley development has already attracted significant levels of interest from local people who are interested in downsizing to a lower maintenance property, and have been attracted by its market town location and convenience to local amenities.

“McCarthy and Stone is committed to designing flexible homes, which are sensitively designed to reflect the character of the neighbourhood, and to help ensure people can make the most of the pleasures retirement brings.”
Up to 150 people will be employed in the construction work, with 60 on site at any one time. The development will include landscaped gardens, state-of-the-art security features, and on-site parking.
Apartments come with either a terrace or private walk out balcony, as well as high specification appliances, luxurious finishing touches and clever design features.
The company says Lifestyle Living from McCarthy and Stone offers the benefits of homeownership without maintenance worries, with external and communal areas are taken care of.
