The Bracknell regeneration project continues with phase 3 of the Lexicon underway. This is part of the large scale £770 million regeneration project that is significantly changing the Bracknell landscape. Bracknell is currently home to a population of approximately 120,000 residents and this is predicted to increase by 15% to 141,000 by 2039, which is one of the quickest rises in the UK. In this article, we explore the changing Bracknell landscape further…
A major part of the Bracknell regeneration project has been the multiple award-winning Lexicon development, which opened in September 2017. This impressive development which cost £240 million is a gamechanger for Bracknell, offering:
- 70 new retail and food and beverage outlets, including two 80,000 sq ft stores, a 12 screen, 4DX screen cinema and many family-friendly restaurants
- 3,800 car spaces provided in both new and upgraded car parks
- Eight core buildings with 6 place utilising squares for events and activities
- £6.5 million extra investment has been made in the highway infrastructure from Bracknell Forest Council
Funding for the next phase of the Lexicon has been approved by Bracknell Forest Council. The committee backed a proposal to provide £4.5 million into the development of 19,000 sq ft of retail/restaurants in a new section to be called ‘The Deck’. The development, on the site of the now old vacant ‘Bentalls’ store, will connect ‘The Lexicon’ with ‘Princess Square’ and offer up to 11 new units.
Councillors also agreed to go in search of a joint venture partner to help develop council-owned sites at Market Street, Cooper’s Hill and Jubilee Gardens for a total of up to 500 apartments.
Located within the Thames Valley – The UK’s ‘Silican Valley’, Bracknell attracts a wealth of corporate and bluechip companies making it extremely popular with professionals from around the globe. Amongst the household names includes Waitrose, HP, Dell, Fujitsu, Honda, Daler Rowney, 3M, AVIS and GE to name but a few!
