Chatham Place, Reading

Chatham Place is a mixed of residential, commercial, retail, leisure and community spaces with quality public open areas. As part of a section 106 planning agreement it provides 96 affordable homes.

Chatham Place, in the centre of Reading, is a high-quality regeneration project which evolved through close liaison with Reading Borough Council, the main landlord of the site, and Muse Developments (formerly AMEC).

It is a mix of residential, commercial, retail, leisure and community spaces with quality public open areas. As part of a section 106 planning agreement it also provides 96 affordable homes.

There were two phases to the development. The affordable housing was built in phase one, together with a 590 space multi-storey car park and 211 private apartments. This was completed at the end of 2008. The second phase of the development incorporated the building of the office and leisure spaces and was completed in 2010.

Catalyst was selected as the development partner for this project following a competition involving all of the joint commissioning partners in Reading.
