Homes have been built in Needham Market on the site of Mid Suffolk District Council's former headquarters.
The Chambers Green development has seen 32 homes built, made up of two- and three-bedroom detached, semi-detached homes, and apartments and a retail unit.
Ten of these properties from Mid Suffolk District Council and Norse Group will be affordable homes.
This development is part of a wider plan to build 133 new homes, a community space and walk, a new library, a café and visitor centre at nearby Needham Lake, and improved access between the lake and town.
The second phase will provide an additional 60 homes, and the transformation of a former school will create a further 41 homes and a library.
