Maidenhead office block gets approval

Posted on by John Cronin

Plans for a £20m office block development in Maidenhead have been approved by the local council.

The nine storey, 35m high building at the highest point will be the second tallest building in Maidenhead after Berkshire House, another multi-storey office block in the town that is 39m at the highest point. Despite some local opposition planning panel members argued the development, on a gateway site to the town in Market Street, will be key to the town’s rejuvenation plans by bringing a surge of footfall in 600 workers. Two existing office buildings on the development site at 27 and 29 (Albany House) Market Street are to be demolished.

The new office block will be located in the commercial area of Maidenhead and will offer approximately 7,000 sq m of floor space in a building of 9,200 sq m gross. The planning committee was satisfied that the development is capable of achieving a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating. It is not yet known if the floorplates will be rated as Grade A.

Aegon Asset Management who plan to lease out the office space are the financial backers behind the development and the project will be undertaken by Capella Estates. Architects for the scheme are Darling Associates.
