Ipswich council is set to give the green light for 169 new flats and houses to be built on the "Landlink" site between Wherstead Road and the Riverside Industrial Park.
The homes will be built in 10 three-storey blocks on the site which is currently derelict and considered an eyesore locally.
The development to be built by a consortium including local builders R.G. Carter and the Shaftesbury Housing Association, will include 25 per cent homes for rent or shared ownership.
