The Victoria Square development in Woking town centre is on track for phased completion in spring 2022.
Construction giant Sir Robert McAlpine is spearheading the multi million pound transformation, which is a joint venture between Woking Borough Council and shopping centre owner and investor, Moyallen Group.
At 34 and 32 storeys high, the two residential towers will feature over 400 high specification apartments in a prime location. The built-to-rent apartments will benefit from full concierge facilities, an external garden, and an amenity space for residents.
The 23 storey third tower will be home to the town’s newest hotel. The 189 room flagship Hilton Hotel will include senior and junior suites, a new lobby bar, all-day dining restaurant, stylish sky bar, conference facilities and an on-site café.
The new development will be anchored by 125,000 sq ft of commercial space featuring the new Marks & Spencer food and clothing store across 50,000 sq ft, multi-storey car park, a medical centre and two public plazas.
In addition to the new car park, sited under the M&S and retail units, the project has also incorporated the demolition and redevelopment of the Shoppers’ Red car park. When combined, the rebuilt 1,382 space Shoppers’ Red car park and the new M&S car park, will provide an additional 740 car parking bays for Woking town centre.
Plans for the all new Victoria Square retail, residential development and hotel, which were first proposed in 2012, play an integral role in Woking’s transformation.
