The vision is to create a vibrant mixed use development in this key town centre location while protecting one of the key heritage assets of Reading for future generations.
The scheme will provide a market square with enhanced retail, and visitor accommodation in the form of an aparthotel and a 4* hotel.
"A destination location that restores the listed buildings of Queen Victoria Street and Friar Street, creates a market square retail experience and provides overnight accommodation in a variety of concepts. The scheme will create vibrancy, employment opportunities and in turn, support the local and regional economy"
Proposals seek to reinstate the historic shopfront design and uniformity, creating a unique historical character to this part of QVS and restore QVS to former glory.
QVS 1 - "The renewal of 141-148 Friar Street could act as a valuable catalyst to support wider improvements within this part of the town centre”
QVS 2 - “The proposals have the potential to provide a significant townscape benefit to this key intersection at the heart of Reading"
