Sackville Developments Reading Limited’s transformational scheme for Station Hill, which begins this summer, is the most significant development outside London and is on a par with mega projects such as those at King's Cross.
A joint venture between Stanhope and Benson Elliot, the mixed-use scheme will include 930,000 sq ft office space over four buildings, 300 residential units and 41,000 sq ft of retail/leisure space.
Station Hill, as its name suggests is located opposite the £900 million redeveloped Reading Station, in the heart of Reading. With incredible transport links, the catchment of occupiers will stretch along the corridor from Bristol to London and the Midlands and South Coast.
Phase one will include the creation of a new temporary public space and 215,000 sq ft of office space in Building One over 17 floors with typical floor plates of 14,000 sq ft. It is aiming to be an exemplar in sustainability with an excellent BREEAM rating of B. Building One is due to be delivered by the end of 2016.
The central car park in the scheme will be redesigned, with two additional floors, bringing capacity up to 850 cars. Retail across the development will be a modern interpretation of Reading’s historic shopping arcades.
The site has consent to build a further three major office buildings with the smallest configuration possible at Building 2 at 82,000 sq ft and the largest at Building 4 at potentially 300,000 sq ft.
