  • Description

    The Blade (110,990 sq ft) is a striking landmark building providing high quality office space with spectacular views. The landlord, Northwood Investors, are based in the building themselves and pride themselves on a personable and hands-on service. The stunning building is complimented with a professional business lounge and co-working space for use by guests and employees alike. A variety of fitted and non-fitted suites are available with a town centre parking ratio of 1:1,000 sq ft.


    The Blade is within a five minute walk (through Forbury Gardens) of Reading’s main station – which provides outstanding transport links across the country and beyond. From 2021 the Elizabeth Line will provide reduced travel time into and across Central London. Heathrow will be within easy reach thanks to the proposed new £500m Western Rail Link to Heathrow scheme – meaning passengers will benefit from direct rail access to the airport from Reading. Access to the M4 at three junctions provides wider connection to the national motorway network and the M25. Reading is fit for cyclists with a 37 mile network. The Readybike hire scheme now has 29 docking stations in the town’s urban centre.

    Reading consistently appears at the top of many annual surveys as one of the best places to live and work in the UK. The town has attracted companies from the creative and tech industries in recent years – thanks to Reading’s vibrant local environment, diverse amenity offering and entrepreneurial spirit.

    Reading boasts an enviable array of shops, bars, restaurants and cultural venues – catering for all tastes and occasions. From The Oracle shopping centre with all the high street favourites and a 10 screen cinema – to music and arts at The Hexagon – to a wide range of sports facilities and activities, it’s all on your doorstep.
