Grandview benefits from the regeneration of Farnborough town centre and surrounding areas.
The new Farnborough International Conference and Exhibition Centre will bring excellent economic benefits to an area already rich in major employment. The success of Farnborough Business Park continues and is home to numerous major corporates and SMEs alike, including RedHat, RBS and Fluor.
The proposed Civic Quarter will provide a mix of leisure and civic facilities as well as housing. Horizon Farnborough is a major retail development which has attracted retailers such as Hobbycraft, Smyths Toys and Decathlon.
The Meads Shopping Centre has seen significant changes over recent years with the arrival of a seven screen Vue Cinema, Sainsbury’s Superstore, Prezzo, Travelodge and a gym. Sticky Sisters, a new dining experience, has opened its first restaurant at The Meads.
The next phase of development of The Meads is further acknowledgement that the exciting regeneration of Farnborough is key to the future economic and cultural growth of the area.
Grandview is prominently situated very close to the town centre and is easily accessible by road, rail and air. Just a minute’s walk takes you to Farnborough station, providing regular fast services to London Waterloo (34 mins), Basingstoke (13 mins) and Guildford (26 mins). The M3 motorway J4 is only 1.8 miles and J4a 3.7 miles.
As well as being an important business destination, Farnborough has a very successful and well attended college where facilities include the Aerospace and Automotive Academy, Beyond Fitness Gym, Gallery Restaurant, Graphic Design Suites, Hair & Beauty Academy, TV and Radio Studios, University Centre Library and more.
Degree and Higher Education students make use of the new University Centre building for small lectures, as well as other specialised facilities. The new building provides bright and welcoming spaces to learn in, with a Starbucks coffee shop, computers, library and plenty of study areas under one roof.
