Councillors will see proposals for a new 133,000 sq ft office building opposite Slough Railway Station on Wednesday (December 4).

The 0.41-hectare site of the former Octagon office building, currently used as a temporary car park, has been the subject of two ambitious, mixed-use schemes, known as Station Square, both of which have been withdrawn.

One plan for 343 Build-to-Rent flats, a 170-room hotel along with leisure business and retail uses and a later scheme for 180 flats and an 85,000 sq ft office, were both withdrawn by Exton Estates and Aberdeen Standard Investments in October.

Now the developer is to present its latest plan to Slough Borough Council’s planning committee in a pre-application presentation at Wednesday’s meeting.

The current proposal is for a seven-storey office building with two ground floor cafes, a two-level car park and roof terraces on the sixth floor and top level.
