The Arc, Reading

Lochailort Reading Ltd.

The Arc is a new commercial building in Reading City Centre.

Located on the corner of Vastern Road and King’s Meadow Road, where the two converge on a roundabout providing a major entry point into the centre of Reading from the north. The train line is situated immediately to the south, with Reading Train Station a two minute drive or around a ten minute walk away.

The site is located within an area of Reading that has seen much redevelopment throughout recent years; with the arrival of Crossrail and subsequent refurbishment of Reading Train Station attracting new investment to the area. Notable new architecture includes the Number Two and Number Three Forbury Place buildings, One Reading Central, The Blade and the Station Hill masterplan, developed by Scott Brownrigg.

This unique and innovative collection of existing tall building projects has set a strong precedent for the development of The Arc, with the intention of creating another landmark building for Reading that will enhance the city’s commercial offering as well as improving the quality of the immediate public realm.

The integration of a publicly-accessible ‘Sky Park’ at the very top of the building will provide a new tourist attraction, with views stretching across the city and beyond in a unique green setting.
