Building works are progressing on two new hotels and apartments on the old library site in the town centre.
The site, between the A4, William Street and the High Street, is being completely transformed by Slough Borough Council into two Marriot brand hotels and 64 top spec apartments, as well as ground level bar and restaurant space.
Leader of the council James Swindlehurst, chief executive, Josie Wragg and director of regeneration, Joe Carter, had a tour of the site to see how work is progressing in May.
Councillor James Swindlehurst, lead member for regeneration, said: “These hotels and apartments show the council’s commitment to not only regeneration but regeneration of the town centre area.
“This complex will bring new vitality to this area with the restaurant and bar and also a choice of hotel accommodation from the short stay boutique of the Moxy to the long-stay business suites of the Residence Inn.
“It is exciting to see work starting and I am looking forward to seeing this complex complete in less than two years.”
The new complex is being developed by the council via Slough Urban Renewal (SUR), a joint venture between the council and Morgan Sindall Investments Ltd.
It has been announced that the Moxy hotel will be using Thunderbirds influences in its décor linking the brand new development with the iconic series which was filmed on Slough trading estate.
