A strategic location
Maidenhead is situated in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. It is widely regarded as one of the Thames Valley’s principal commercial centres due to its excellent road and rail connectivity, as well as a highly skilled workforce and a population of approx. 70,000.
With its excellent working environment and strategic location approximately 30 miles west of Central London and 16 miles west of Heathrow International Airport, the town has firmly established itself as one of the most sought-after headquarter locations for corporate occupiers in the Thames Valley region.
Maidenhead is a core South East office market and has attracted a number of ‘blue chip’ international occupiers, providing UK headquarter offices for Hutchison 3G, Rank Leisure, Abbott Laboratories and FM Global. The town centre is set to see substantial inward investment, focusing on major infrastructure improvements and regeneration. This will include the opening of Crossrail 2022 which is poised to improve the connectivity of the town significantly. Other town centre occupiers include Blackberry, SquaredUp, Maersk Line, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, CSL Behring and Adobe Systems.
