Our joint venture with Lincoln Property Company to regenerate Station Hill in Reading moved a step closer over the weekend with a public exhibition event to display the latest plans for the project.
The public exhibition took place on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 June at Station Hill coffee shop, The Biscuit Tin. Local people were invited to view the proposals and discuss the plans with members of the project team.
The consultation event followed the start of demolition works on site earlier this month, demonstrating Lincoln MGT’s commitment to delivering this project. Once complete, Station Hill will deliver crucial new routes linking the station to the town centre, over 1,000 new homes, high-quality office accommodation for approximately 8,000 employees, a hotel, plus 100,000 sq ft of new restaurants, bars and other leisure facilities. All of these uses will be knitted together via exceptional landscaping and new public spaces, including a new pocket park and public square with the capacity to host community events.
“Since acquiring the site last summer we have worked in partnership with Reading Borough Council to work up proposals for a best in class development. Station Hill represents one of the most exciting regeneration projects in the south east and a key step in Reading’s wider growth trajectory. We have a unique opportunity to deliver a mixed use scheme of exceptional quality, which fuses residential, office, leisure and retail uses around enhanced landscaping and public realm.”
“We are pleased with the positive feedback we have received to date through the pre-application process with Reading Borough Council, and now seek to extend our consultation to the wider community and stakeholders. We recognise the importance of working with the local community in order to achieve this and it was good to discuss the plans with local people.”
