Kingstanding will transform over 30 acres of unused brownfield land in Kent into a thriving new business destination and community, addressing a severe shortfall of office and industrial space provision in the area.
In addition to providing high-quality employment space and much-needed business accommodation, Kingstanding – located 3.5 miles from Tunbridge Wells town centre – will also create a flexible working environment to cater for a variety of different businesses.
The scheme, designed by Scott Brownrigg architects, comprises a mix of high quality offices and warehousing units within a landscaped parkland setting – centred around a restored pond and backed by the ancient woodland of King’s Standing. Buildings will be positioned adjacent to the woodland and other key landscape features to allow the occupiers immediate access to nature and other outdoor amenities.
A terraced bowl of parkland landscape will wrap around the pond and create a central amenity space for employees. Biodiversity across the site will be much improved – the pond will create habitat for birds, dragonflies, bees and butterflies and will also be accessible via public footpaths, accommodating a café and other general facilities for occupiers.
The site is well connected and accessible by car, bus and train, while cycling to the site from Tunbridge Wells town centre will take around 16 minutes. The scheme has direct access to the newly improved A21 and is only a short journey to the M25.
