Saint-Cloud Way is a new high-quality residential neighbourhood that knits together Maidenhead town centre with surrounding areas. The proposal integrates a vibrant public realm with 350 new homes alongside supporting community and commercial uses. The development creates a new context for the historic building on the site providing opportunities for a greater appreciation of Maidenhead’s heritage assets. The architectural detailing and material palette build upon Maidenhead’s rich material heritage and the surrounding context to embed the proposal into its surroundings and add to Maidenhead’s established character.
A key driver for the scheme is the creation of new green landscaping linking east-west to the existing Kidwells Park area and a new north-south pedestrian link to the town centre. These new links and associated improvements to the public realm establish the development as an integral part of the town enabling easy, safe access to local amenities for the neighbouring communities.
The site is currently occupied by the former Magnet Leisure Centre. It is the second of four key town centre sites in Maidenhead to be developed by a joint venture formed in 2017 between the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and Countryside Properties.
