PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Station Hill development site which will see 1,200 houses built in Reading is well underway. Not only will it provide homes but it will also offer offices, shops and a 200-room hotel between Friar Street and Reading Station. The Garrard Street car park closed in early 2021 to be demolished in preparation for the One Station Hill development in Reading. The development plans to transform what is currently a run down part of the town into a massive housing area. Redevelopment work is worth £750m and will change the skyline of Reading because before the area was demolished to make way for offices and flats, the site housed an industrial-looking car park and a ballroom named Top Rank.

. So far the project has seen derelict buildings pulled down as plans for the first phase of Station Hill were given permission in July 2019. Speaking at the time, Reading Borough Council's lead member for planning Cllr Tony Page said: "Redevelopment and regeneration of this area is long overdue and the demand for it is clearly great." Once it is completed, there will be 64 studio flats, 276 one-bed flats, 248 two-bed apartments, and 11 three-bed flats. It is set over two acres of public space and will boast a public plaza at the heart of the development.
