Project details

A new urban quarter in a historic town centre.

Parkway provides nearly 28,000 sq m of retail space at street level and includes two anchor stores along with over 50 shops and public realm space surrounded by al fresco cafes adjacent to the River Kennet.

Two-level retail units front the new Middle Street within the managed centre with linked access to the existing high street shops. Above the retail podium, a landscaped piazza is surrounded by over 180 residential units with a seven storey landmark residential tower fronting onto the adjacent Victoria Park.

The separate building blocks provide a coherent and legible pedestrian environment that recognises and responds to the destinations and other quarters in the town.

A vibrant retail-led, mixed-use town centre scheme.
