Bracknell town centre regeneration
The Bracknell Regeneration Partnership is seeking to create a vibrant town centre, with a mix of new retail and leisure not only for daytime but also to develop the town’s night time economy.
The first phase saw the introduction of a new 36,000 sq ft Waitrose store which has received a fantastic response from the local community.
The demolition of one of Bracknell Forest’s most well-known buildings, Winchester House, has begun and represents a significant milestone in the regeneration.
The scheme has gained in momentum over the past year and is now entering an exciting stage in the evolution of the town centre.
The second phase, which will begin in 2015, will see the regeneration of the northern area. This will include around 50 retail and leisure units, ten restaurants and landscaped public spaces.
Who has signed up?
The scheme has already agreed a pre-let to Cineworld; the UK’s number one cinema chain, for a 12-screen, 41,500 sq ft cinema.
The new town centre will also feature a brand new 80,000 sq ft Marks and Spencer store, bringing a full range of fashion, home ware and quality food to the town.
Fenwicks has also agreed terms on a new 80,000 sq ft iconic building.
Other confirmed stores include Primark and H&M as well as a range of eateries including Nandos, Zizzi, Carluccio’s, Coast to Coast, Gourmet Burger and Las Iguanas.
