This week, the regeneration of Bracknell town centre hit a new milestone as the final stage of the demolition was completed. The last building to be demolished was in the former Charles Square, which is in the process of being transformed into a new shopping street. These works are anticipated to start in the spring.
Simon Russian, Development Manager for Legal & General on behalf of the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, commented: "This is a really exciting time for the regeneration. With work progressing quickly in the northern part of the Town Centre, we will soon see the steelwork for the new shopping street appearing so residents will get a great idea of how this part of the regeneration will fit together.
"We are very grateful to both residents and businesses for their cooperation whilst the last part of the demolition has been completed."
Marc Brunel-Walker executive member for economic development and regeneration, said: "This final stage of demolition is a key milestone in the creation of a new and exciting skyline for our town centre, which will include Marks and Spencer, Fenwick and many other famous names." This part of the Lexicon is due to open in Spring 2017 alongside the new shops, restaurants, cinema and car park in the northern retail area.
