With Bracknell now hailed as one of the most successful Boom Towns in the South East, there’s never been a better time to move to Bracknell and buy at the Fitzroy Collection.
With the stunning new £240 million Lexicon shopping and leisure district now open, Bracknell is forming the heart of one of the largest urban regeneration projects in the UK.
Overall, the £768 million regeneration of the Bracknell Forest area will see new schools, improvements to transport and expanded healthcare facilities, making Bracknell one of the most vibrant places to live and work in the home counties. The Fitzroy Collection by Hodson Developments is making for an ideal opportunity to invest in the thriving Berkshire ‘Boom Town’
Although Bracknell has a mainline station that can take you to London Waterloo in just an hour, the incredible regeneration of the area means there is little reason to go further afield for shopping and leisure opportunities – everything is right there on the doorstep. The centrepiece of the new Bracknell town centre is The Lexicon, a one million square foot shopping and leisure complex with 70 shops and restaurants, funded by The Bracknell Regeneration Partnership in conjunction with Bracknell Forest Council.
The Lexicon, one of the biggest town centre regenerations in the UK, has every type of shop you could wish for – a premium Fenwick department store, M&S, Boots, Next, H&M, Footlocker, Cath Kidston and much more. You can take a break at a variety of cafes, including Patisserie Valerie or Costa, and when you’re too weighed down with shopping bags to move much further there’s also a Waitrose and a Sainsbury’s. The Lexicon is also great for an evening out, with a selection of restaurants to choose from serving everything from gourmet to relaxed family dining.
Cineworld at Bracknell keeps the centre buzzing all evening, with 12 screens to choose from and access to the latest 4DX technology – a revolutionary cinematic experience that stimulates all five senses with the help of high-tech motion seats and special effects including wind, fog, lightning, bubbles, water, rain and scents, all synchronised with the action on screen.
With so much to offer, it’s not surprising that companies are investing heavily in the Bracknell area. The Bracknell Regeneration Partnership is a joint venture between Legal & General Capital and Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, while other major companies are involved in the £112 million being spent on new schools, £250 million on healthcare and £108 million on new homes. Luxury housing developments such as Hodson Developments’ Fitzroy Collection not only provide a superb environment in which to live, but also offer fantastic opportunities for buy-to-let investors to stake a claim in newly transformed area.
Christie Alaimo, Sales Director for Hodson Developments, says: “Inspired urban regeneration is transforming Bracknell into a vibrant place to live and work, with great possibilities for investment. The 72 luxury apartments at the Fitzroy Collection are within walking distance of the mainline railway station and all the shopping and leisure options at The Lexicon, but in a peaceful area with uninterrupted views of the rolling countryside from the balconies. Whether you’re looking for a first home, aided with Help to Buy, or an investment property for the future, booming Bracknell and the Fitzroy Collection should be the first place to look.”
