It could be second time lucky for the Kings Triangle plans when they return before the Royal Borough on Tuesday - despite the fact concerns remain over the £152million scheme.
Councillors have been advised to approve in principle the redevelopment of the area between King Street, Queen Street and Broadway, with final approval delegated to officers subject to a string of more than 60 conditions.
They deferred making a decision on the application at a meeting in December due to a list of flaws, opting to give ING Red UK (Maidenhead) Ltd time to work on them.
A new report prepared by council officers ahead of Tuesday's meeting now says the development should be supported.
"It will help bring about the rejuvenation of Maidenhead town centre and in particular will enhance the retail offer and create new homes and office space all within a high quality environment that will integrate well into its surroundings," it reads.
"The scheme will also contribute towards economic growth."
The report can be viewed on the council's website.
The meeting will take place at the town hall from 7pm.
