Topping out has taken place at the new 240,000 sq ft office development at Green Park, ahead of an expected Autumn completion.
Reading West MP and secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy, Alok Sharma, joined pupils from Whitley Park Primary School as guests of Green Park owner, Mapletree to plant a sapling and tour the site at 400 and 450 Longwater Avenue.
Mapletree vice-president of asset management in the UK, Rory Carson, said: “Once the two new buildings are completed in the Autumn, the total amount of office space will increase to approximately 1.6 million sq ft, providing capacity for a further 2,500 people to join the Green Park business community.
“Ready for occupation in Autumn 2020, 400 & 450 Longwater Avenue will provide a total of 233,988 sq ft of grade A, column free space over five floors, surrounded by bio-diverse landscaped grounds overlooking Longwater Lake.
“This latest development underpins Green Park’s ethos of providing an occupier-centric approach in all that we do, with the building designs having been accredited by the WELL Building Institute. In addition, they are expected to achieve a BREEAM Excellent certification.”
Cushman & Wakefield and Campbell Gordon are agents for the building.
