Moorgarth submits planning application for Broad Street Mall, Reading
Moorgarth Group has submitted a planning application to Reading Borough Council for a major residential development at its Broad Street Mall shopping and leisure destination.
The Moorgarth scheme will create almost 500 new homes above the existing centre in three towers at the southern side of Broad Street Mall and two other residential blocks.
The existing distinctive car park wall will be retained while the Hosier St/Dusseldorf Way frontage is transformed with new retail or F&B units in South Court, adjacent to a new hotel for which separate plans have been submitted to the council.
Around Broad Street Mall, there will also be landscaping improvements to enhance the public realm. Subject to gaining the necessary planning approval, it is expected that the phased-work could start on the development next year.
Moorgarth’s managing director Gary Lewis said: “Our vision for Broad Street Mall is for an exciting and vibrant destination that will provide one of the finest urban living environments outside the capital.”
