Location

A unique opportunity to invest in Reading’s tallest residential development, City Tower. Just a short stroll from Reading’s superb shopping and business centres, City Tower offers 139 fabulously appointed one and two bedroom apartments over 18 floors, many with balconies, clustered around their own private landscaped courtyard.

The scheme is further complimented by underground car parking, a 24-hour concierge desk and under-floor heating. These apartments set a new standard for Reading which, until now, have only been found in London’s most exclusive apartment buildings.

Local Area

Reading has experienced significant growth over the past 15 years, to become a popular headquarter location for multinational firms within the technology sector. The arrival of companies such as Microsoft, Cisco, HP, Intel, and Huawei has given it the prestigious title, ‘Silicon Valley’ of Europe.

Central London is in reach with just a 22 minute train journey to London Paddington, and the station and surrounding rail network has recently undergone a £895 million redevelopment. Commuters enjoy increased capacity, modern facilities and more regular departures. Reading is also home to a world-class university ranked in the top 1% globally, providing a stream of young talent into the workforce.

Reading is a very popular destination for shoppers, with one of the best retail districts in the UK. Completed in 1999, The Oracle Shopping Mall contains 90 retail outlets, 22 restaurants and a multiscreen cinema, with an estimated footfall of 14 million per year.
