Redhill’s new development on Marketfield Way reached an important milestone on Friday.  The concrete frame of the residential block has now reached its full height of 13 floors. 

In line with tradition, reaching the highest point of the construction was celebrated with a “Topping Out” event.  The occasion was marked by a yew tree branch being placed on the top floor, accompanied by a toast to the future success of the scheme.  The event was presided over by the Mayor of Reigate and Banstead, and attended by development partners and members of the Redhill Business Guild.  

The development includes a new multi-screen cinema, shops, restaurants and new homes, and is scheduled for completion at the end of next year.
