Green Gates is ideally located just a mile from the centre of Maidenhead which is currently being transformed by a £300m placemaking scheme, ahead of the arrival of Crossrail in 2019. Set to breathe new life into the already thriving town centre, and surrounding area, this major investment will introduce nearly 100,000 m2 of new office space, an enhanced retail offering, additional parking, a new town square, and a variety of new cafés and restaurants, creating a distinctive heart of the community that is both stylish and welcoming.
Maidenhead is already home to a variety of independent stores, alongside Waitrose and the Nicholsons Shopping Centre. The town centre also enjoys regular markets from artists, farmers and continental traders. A little further afield, a selection of shops with easy parking can be found in the Bishops Centre.
Providing excellent road and rail connections, the A404, M4 and M40 are all easily accessible and a regular train service operates from the nearby Maidenhead Railway station, which is located less than one mile from the private development, transporting passengers into London in just over 30 minutes.
From 2019, residents will be able to reap the rewards of Crossrail line which will become the Elizabeth Line, linking Maidenhead with Essex via London. There will be two trains per hour from Reading calling at Maidenhead, East London and Central London stations. The new trains are set to provide a world class rail service to Bond Street in 40 minutes and Canary Wharf in under an hour, with access to Heathrow Central in 25 minutes.
