A design competition for the redevelopment of the Broadway Triangle site in Maidenhead has been launched by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
Architectural practices across the UK are being invited to submit expressions of interest as the site's new owners, the London & Aberdeen Group and Smedvig Eiendom, look to find the perfect plans for the land.
A release issued by RIBA states the clients are looking for a practice which can 'bring imaginative thinking to build upon a high level strategic master plan' and produce a 'high quality, affordable scheme that sits comfortably within its context'.
The proposed scheme is estimated to cost about £200m and will involve the redevelopment of a 4.7 acre site between Broadway, King Street and Queen Street for a combination of leisure and residential facilities.
A minimum of three architectural practices will be shortlisted to develop concept designs for the project, with each practice receiving an honoraria payment of £7,000+VAT.
The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is 2pm on Friday, February 21.
