Woking AlturaThe site is being prepared at Victoria Way for Woking’s new landmark, an 18-storey, three-tower office block. A notice on the site hoarding says it will have a “Skyview Restaurant.” There is no other information about any public access. A direction to a website, altura-woking.com, reveals only a picture of the development, and the news that more details will follow, although there are a number of email addresses for agencies involved. It is likely to be the first of a series of new, distinctive buildings that will dominate Woking’s skyline in the years to come as the town exploits its good railway links. A story in the Woking News and Mail reveals more about the thinking behind the development, , including the hope that it will spark other development in the immediate area, including more public space.

Three months on from this original posting, the site has been turned into a temporary car park as the developer accepts it may take some time to sign up a tenant in the current financial climate.  He’s no fool, though: his car parking charges undercut Woking borough council’s ones.
