The Proposal

Woking Town Centre has a significant shortage of high quality Grade A office space and so new office developments like this are needed to drive investment into the town and boost the local economy.

The proposed development will provide accommodation for all types of business, from local SME’s to large national corporations. It also considers the needs of the town and provides significant social and economic benefits, including:

  • 136,000 sqft of highly sustainable, Grade A quality office space
  • New flexible restaurant, café and retail spaces
  • Supporting night time and daytime economies
  • High quality new public realm and landscaping
  • High quality design that responds to the local context
  • 1,000+ Additional Jobs created by the development.
  • Encouraging sustainable travel with cycle facilities
  • £66m per annum of additional Gross Value Added to the economy upon completion
