Reading Football Club Developments has unveiled plans for Royal Elm Park – an exceptional mixed-use development with Madejski Stadium at its heart. Proposals comprise the transformation of an undeveloped parcel of land, providing a world-class convention centre, new homes, over 1,000 new jobs and delivery of an exciting new mix of leisure facilities, including an ice rink, restaurants and a large public square.
The convention centre will bring together year-round business and cultural events which will benefit the people of Reading and the local economy, designed to meet existing market demand and act as a catalyst for growth in Reading and across Berkshire. Capable of accommodating up to 3,000 delegates, the centre will provide flexible, adaptable spaces – able to facilitate a range of events from business meetings, conferences and exhibitions to live entertainment including music, sport and comedy.
Royal Elm Park proposes to deliver over 600 new homes on this site, many of which will overlook a new, publicly accessible park of more than 10,000sq m in size – comparable to approximately one and a half football pitches.
