The subject property is prominently located on the corner of Station Road and Friar Street, with excellent visibility from both the train station and Reading town centre. Reading railway station is 200 yards away from the subject property and will soon service up to four Crossrail trains per hour directly into Central London. Station Road acts as the primary thoroughfare connecting the train station and the amenity offer in the town centre including The Oracle shopping centre, therefore attracting a significant level of footfall throughout the day.
The subject property is directly opposite Pitcher & Piano and Caffe Nero and is also surrounded by a number of other well-established leisure operators such as Revolucion de Cuba, Nando’s and Revolution. The arrival of Crossrail has provided the impetus for long-awaited redevelopment in the area with initial plans in place for the Station Hill development which will include a mix of residential, retail and office space. There is approximately 3.7 million sq ft of office space planned within the Reading station
