Green Park Village: A Sneak Peek Inside the Reading Housing Estate M4 users unknowingly walk by every day


Development of the site began in 2016, but many drivers riding the normally animated A33 and M4 on and off won’t even realize it’s there.

Huge developments are taking place around Reading city center and people passing by or living nearby can see the rapid changes taking place.

The likes of The Thames Quarter, off Napier Road, and Huntley Wharf at Kenavon Drive are growing rapidly.

Another development that townspeople may not be so aware of is the massive new village of Green Park south of Reading.

Occupying a large expanse of previously unused land on Green Park Business Park in South Reading, hundreds of homes have been built since development began in 2016.

Thousands of drivers will travel the nearby A33 and M4 every day without realizing it.

The 10-year construction project started in 2016 and so far 303 of the new homes have been sold.

The estate also contains the new Green Park Village Academy elementary school, which opened in September 2020, and will eventually include a community center and shops for the people who live there.

A number of “New England” style homes are also found by the huge lake on the site. The development also includes the new Green Park station, which is currently under construction.

The completed estate will eventually contain more than 1,300 new homes, ranging from apartments costing around £ 250,000 to five-bed family homes in excess of £ 900,000.

The business park is home to giants like Huawei and Tallis, and many employees of these companies have purchased the new homes.

The project is one of many projects completed in Berkshire by Berkeley Homes – including Huntley Wharf in Reading and the development of 1,110 Horlicks Factory homes in Slough.
