Wokingham Town Centre Regeneration project shortlisted for Property Week award
Benoy¡¯s Wokingham Town Centre Regeneration project has been shortlisted for a prestigious Property Week Property Award in the Placemaking category.
The Property Week Property Awards are the UK¡¯s leading and most prestigious annual awards dedicated to the full spectrum of the commercial property industry.
The project shortlisting follows Wokingham being awarded the Royal Town Planning Institute¡¯s award for?¡®Excellence in Planning for a Successful Economy¡¯ last year and also the ULI Award for Excellence earlier this year.
Our work at Wokingham saw us working across two sites ¨C Peach Place and Elms Fields, as part of a wider regeneration project instigated by Wokingham Borough Council in the face of a failing retail and leisure offer, lack of town centre living and competition from nearby competing centres such as Bracknell and Reading.
Closely following Wokingham Borough Council¡¯s vision, Benoy reimagined the town centre as a thriving destination for commerce and urban living; with modern retail formats, F&B, leisure and a significant quantum of residential across two mixed-use developments at Peach Place and Elms Field.
The award results will be announced at a ceremony in London in November.
