City Tower

Reading, Berkshire

City Tower, Reading’s tallest residential development, is just a short walk from the town’s superb shopping and business centres. Completed in 2015, City Tower offers 139 contemporary one and two bedroom apartments, many with balconies and clustered around their own private landscaped courtyard.

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