A 15-storey office building next to Reading Station has been completed.
Thames Tower, developed in a joint venture between Landid and Brockton Capital, was delivered on 15 May.
It comprises 18,100sq m of office space and has already attracted a number of occupiers, including financial services provider HSBC, professional services firm BDO, recruitment firm Austin Fraser and natural food specialist Pret A Manger.
Designed by dn-a architects, the scheme saw a 10-storey 1970s building stripped back to its frame. Floor plates were extended and four floors added, creating an additional 5,760sq m of space.
A 370sq m rooftop lounge with a terrace and garden was added, called Roost, designed by Moho London, providing a communal bar and cafe for occupiers and also used as an events space.
The building’s ground floor includes 740sq m for restaurants, cafes and other amenities.
“We are incredibly proud to have completed Thames Tower,” said James Silver, Landid development director. “We have created a workspace that is like no other in Reading.
“This project has been a labour of love. Some of the great occupiers that we have already signed up will soon be moving in and bringing the building to life.”
