In December 2013 Essential Living achieved planning consent to develop Berkshire House, converting it from a largely empty office block into 68 spacious apartments. The 14-storey scheme was the first office-to-residential Build-to-Rent conversion in the UK to win planning approval.

Our plans to refurbish this tired and under-used central building will contribute to the revitalisation of Maidenhead and enable town centre living, thereby reducing development pressure on surrounding greenfield land.

The transformation of Berkshire House is now underway and this website has been created to enable local residents to find out more about the scheme, view construction updates and contact us directly with any questions.
