Public exhibitions are to be held to display the next phase of Station Hill in Reading.
As exclusively revealed by Thames Tap, developer Lincoln MGT has submitted plans for the second phase of the £750 million mixed use scheme to Reading Borough Council.
The proposals, which are for the northern section of the scheme, will be on display along with members of the project team on Friday, January 31, (4pm – 8pm) and on Saturday, February 1 (10am – 1pm) at The Biscuit Tin, 40 Station Hill.
Alex Aitchison, director of development at Lincoln Property Company UK, said: “The submission of this brand new planning application for the north site (phase two), is yet another deliverable milestone in bringing forward all the aspirations of stakeholders and the wider community for Station Hill.
“The proposal will deliver the new gateway to Reading that the town deserves, whilst ensuring a best in class regeneration to anchor Reading as the capital of the south east for generations to come.”
Construction of 538 flats in phase one of the scheme is set to begin in Spring 2020. Demolition of Friars Walk is currently under way.
Once complete, Station Hill will provide over 1,000 new homes, 600,000 sq ft of offices, 100,000 sq ft of commercial space for retail, cafés and restaurants, a new pedestrian link between the station and the town centre, a landscaped pocket park and public square to host community events.
