Virgin Media moves UK HQ to Reading

Virgin Media has picked Mapletree’s Green Park Business Park in Reading, Berkshire, as its new UK HQ, taking 120,000 sq ft at 500 Brook Drive.

The move comes as Mapletree readies the next phase of speculative development at the 195-acre Green Park, with plans to develop 228,000 sq ft of office space across two buildings at 400 and 450 Longwater Avenue.

Virgin Media currently has UK head offices in Hammersmith, west London, and in Hook, Hampshire.

It will join other international occupiers at Green Park, including drinks giant PepsiCo, Chinese tech company Huawei and defence firm
