Tower of strength

No sooner had the barricades gone up around Thames Tower than plans were unveiled to show off its replacement.

It will be more than double the size of the current mucky brown block and externally it will have a glass and aluminum facade.

There will be retail on the ground floor and first floor.

It’s not the latest or greatest building looking building but it will be Reading’s tallest. And it will be stunning compared to the horrible building there now.

Developers envisage a 2016 finish. After so many years waiting, all I can say is it can’t come soon enough.
