A new Permitted Development application has been made to convert Soane Point in Reading to 100 flats.

Tene Living applied to Reading Borough Council in May to convert the office building in Market Place. Now Business Environment has submitted a similar application via Pegasus.

It proposes some small alterations to the layout but the same number of units – 76 studios and 24 with one-bedroom.

Tene Living had previously applied to create 144 flats but that was rejected over noise and contamination risks.

And last year, Castleforge Partners applied to carry out a major refurbishment and extension to create 110,771 sq ft of co-working space under its Clockwise brand but withdrew its plans in January.
