Berkeley was delighted to welcome a number of local dignitaries and residents to the formal opening of Aquifer Gardens at Horlicks Quarter in June.
Local MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, Council Leader James Swindlehurst, and a host of local councillors, joined Berkeley to celebrate the completion of the first public amenity space within the emerging neighbourhood.
Aquifer Gardens is set at the heart of Horlicks Quarter, providing a large green public open space with beautiful landscaping and calming water features.
Horlicks Quarter is an exciting regeneration site where, in partnership with Slough Borough Council, Berkeley has delivered the first new homes and is well underway with the heritage restoration of the iconic former Horlicks Factory, clock tower and chimney.
Caroline McHardy, Land & Development Director at Berkeley Oxford & Chiltern, said “The opening of Aquifer Gardens marks another major milestone in the creation of Horlicks Quarter. We were delighted to welcome our first residents into Darjeeling House in April, with over 65 apartments now occupied. Meanwhile, works continue with the restoration of iconic landmarks on the site such as the Clocktower and major refurbishment of the Horlicks Factory building, with apartments now available for sale. We were thrilled that some of our key local councillors and residents were able to join us to mark this momentous occasion.”
Mr Desi MP shared photos from the memorably day, commenting that “the iconic chimney and factory, a British landmark in Slough, has been rejuvenated by Berkeley Group to blend seamlessly into beautiful housing.”
Berkeley Group is the only major UK homebuilder committed to long-term regeneration; transforming disused land into distinct, sustainable mixed-use neighbourhoods. Horlicks Quarter is one of 26 long-term regeneration developments already in production.
