WORK on a part-built apartment complex has started again - six years since the development came to an abrupt end.

The City Reach building, on Heelis Street, will contain 113 apartments with work expected to be finished in "nine to 11 months' time".

The concrete skeleton - which was conceived as a striking new addition to the Barnsley skyline when the development was given planning permission almost seven years ago - sold for £375,000 at auction in October.

The development, near Morrisons, was abandoned at the height of the recession but work has recently restarted thanks to owners Superior Living Limited.

It will also have car parking and a gym for residents.
