Mixed-use masterplan to provide 400 homes
Child Graddon Lewis has been appointed to design the latest phase of Bracknell town centre’s regeneration.
The practice has been selected by Bracknell Forest council alongside developer Countryside as joint venture partner to lead the £124m scheme, which is the latest phase in the Berkshire town’s revamp.
It follows the completion of BDP’s £250m refurb of The Lexicon, an open-air retail district of shops, food outlets and a cinema.
The new JV will work on a masterplan for three council-owned sites to provide around 400 homes, of which 35% will be affordable, together with a new health centre, restaurant, office space, gym, community space and some public art.
The first planning applications are expected to be lodged in early 2021 with construction slated to begin the same year.
Landscape architect Outerspace, planning consultant Montagu Evans and fire consultant Jensen Hughes are already on the project team.
