Morgan Sindall’s urban regeneration division Muse Developments has been selected as a development manager for the £650m ($841.5m) North West Quadrant scheme in Slough, England.

The scheme forms part of Slough Urban Renewal plan, a joint venture regeneration partnership between Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall.

Slough council plans to build the North West Quadrant town centre regeneration scheme on a former Thames Valley University land, which was purchased earlier as part of the regeneration vision.

Slough Borough Council chief executive Josie Wragg said: “The TVU site will be reinvigorated, housing new homes, new offices, shops and leisure facilities, completing the final quadrant of the Heart of Slough – a landmark for our town we can all be proud of.

“The investment from the council will trigger the largest single local authority regeneration project seen outside of London.”

The scheme will provide 1,400 homes across a range of tenures, more than 250,000ft² of commercial space, 45,000ft² of ancillary leisure and retail, and 150,000ft² of cultural facilities and public realm.

In addition to contributing significantly to the on-going regeneration of the town, the new development is expected to attract inward investment while creating thousands of jobs.

Muse Developments regional director Mike Auger said: “It is truly a transformational scheme and we look forward to working collaboratively with our partners and the community, to create a series of innovative solutions that deliver a real sense of place in the heart of Slough town centre.

“Slough’s town centre redevelopment is one of the UK’s largest programmes of regeneration and we’re delighted to be working with partners to deliver these exciting schemes.”

Morgan Sindall Investments managing director Wes Erlam, said: “Through SUR we are able to leverage the wider capability of the Morgan Sindall Group and are truly excited to continue to be an integral part of the Council’s long term regeneration outcomes for Slough.”

Master-plan proposals for the new scheme are planned to be developed over the coming months with public consultation scheduled at the end of 2020.
