The £460m redevelopment of Woking town centre has started on site. From 2020, the Victoria Square development will provide more than 125,000 sq ft of new retail floorspace as well as 429 build-to-rent apartments, multi-storey car parking, a medical centre and two public plazas.
The site takes in the former Woking Market, Post Office, Globe House, Woking Fire Station and part of the existing Wolsey Place shopping centre and the project is being delivered by a joint venture between Moyallen, which owns the adjoining Peacocks shopping centre, and Woking Borough Council.
Marks & Spencer will anchor Victoria Square with a two-level 50,000-sq ft store alongside a new flagship Boots store.
Moyallen chief executive Peter Robinson said: “This project is in line with our strategic focus to rapidly drive the area’s potential and its dynamism for the benefit of everyone.”
