Berkeley have acquired permission to create a brand-new, sophisticated property development on the site of the iconic Horlicks Factory in Slough city centre, providing quality contemporary living options enhanced by gorgeous green spaces and improved biodiversity which will help to revitalise the surrounding areas.
This development will provide a range of homes from studios, to brand new apartments, stunning penthouses in the refurbished Horlicks Factory to houses for the family. A host of amenities will also enhance quality of life for those looking for an inspiring metropolitan place to live that's a little closer to nature. With plans to build up to 1,300 high-spec homes on this site, we are well underway with our ambitions to restore this landmark area to its former glory, complete with a restoration of the original factory building, chimney and clock tower.
With Slough being one of the UK's leading business hubs and its immediate proximity to London just twenty miles away, the choice of homes provided by this new development will help strengthen Slough's position as an ideal place to live for young professionals and families.
Berkeley's development of The Horlicks factory is set to include over £5 million to go toward local infrastructure improvement projects, including those which will help bolster transport and education services and boost local biodiversity. An integrated memorial square will also give the William Dick memorial a formal civic square to create a truly unique place to reflect on the past.
This landmark site in Slough is set to be the new place to be with café, retail and fitness developments proposed. There are also luscious open spaces available for everyone to enjoy whether you're a Horlicks resident or otherwise.
This regeneration of a section of Slough city centre aims to embrace elements of healthier living and sustainability, fusing them with high-quality housing to create universal appeal. The refurbished Horlicks Factory building will incorporate a new rooftop garden to give residents a safe outdoor space which the whole family can relax in and enjoy.
Our plans aim to prioritise creating quality green spaces which every can enjoy all year round, with cultivated gardens and an on-site bee hotel to help promote biodiversity both within our outdoor spaces and the local area. Cycle and pedestrian routes will be integral to our plans, providing everyone passing through a quicker route too and from the centre of Slough and over toward the train station.
With even more investments on the way for Slough, including a £1 billion regeneration project shaping up nicely across the entirety of the city, there's never been a better time to invest in property in Slough.
