Bracknell’s regenerated town centre has opened for business. Following months of anticipation on social media and elsewhere, customers can visit the new shops, dine at the restaurants and enjoy the different attractions following the grand opening on 7 September.


Part of a £768 million investment in the regeneration of Bracknell Forest Borough, the renovated town centre includes The Lexicon Bracknell, a brand new, £240 million retail and leisure heart for the town and for East Berkshire.


The Lexicon Bracknell was developed by the Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, a 50:50 joint venture between Redwood client, Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, and  Legal & General Capital, working with Bracknell Forest Council.


James Lass, Fund Manager for the Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, said: “We are delighted that The Lexicon has now been opened by the community in Bracknell. This scheme has transformed the town and will be a catalyst for creating value and further opportunities elsewhere in the town centre. The impressive line-up of retail and restaurant brands will create a vibrancy for the local economy, whilst the scheme as a whole complements the area’s exceptional business and employment offer, reinforcing Bracknell Forest as great place to live and work.”
