Special guests were invited to the official opening by Arch of the mixed use development in Front Street.
The building features two retail units and the Town Council office on the ground floor, while on the upper floors there are eight two-bedroom apartments for rent by Arch Homes.
Three of the apartments have already been let while the ground floor retail units can provide either one larger retail unit or two smaller retail units.
