Ben Ivey, sales and marketing director of Berkeley (Oxford & Chilterns) said: We are thrilled to be playing a key role in the regeneration of such a vibrant town.

Our new scheme, Horlicks Quarter is being created on the iconic Horlicks factory site and will include 1,300 new and refurbished apartments and townhouses, with a range of amenities for both residents and the local community."  

Mr Ivey added despite Covid, the build programme for the development remains on track to create 576 homes in phase one.

“We were delighted to welcome our first residents into Aquifer House last month such that 35 apartments are now occupied,” he said.

“Our landscaping team have also been busy finishing the central ‘Aquifer Gardens’ which we will formally open next month.

“Anyone coming down to the site will be impressed by the progress we’ve made. Our vision for the scheme is really beginning to take shape.”

Novus apartments is the latest collection of homes to be delivered by Slough Urban Renewal, a joint project between the council and national urban regenerator, Muse Developments.

Andy Howell, general manager of Slough Urban Renewal, explained: "Home to some major employers, with strong transport connections, a huge regeneration underway and some impressive new leisure facilities already in place, Slough is an attractive proposition for first time buyers."

“It’s a fantastic town rich in history with even more potential and we are committed to enabling place-changing regeneration for the benefit of the community to drive generational job creation and economic development.”
