Outline plans to demolish obsolete buildings at 3-6 Bridge Avenue in Maidenhead and replace them with 57 sheltered apartments have been submitted to the Royal Borough.
The proposals include knocking down four office buildings, which were formerly used as private homes, and building an apartment block made up of one and two-bedroom flats over six floors.
In a design and access statement, applicant Aeos Projects LLP said the plans seek to address 'significant' demand for new sheltered accommodation 'by making more efficient use of a brownfield site in a highly sustainable location'.
Last month, a separate outline application from the company to build a four-storey office block on the same land was approved by councillors at a Royal Borough planning meeting, subject to conditions.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
All lines are currently blocked between Reading and London Paddington stations due to a person being hit by a train.
