“We want to introduce Reading to a new way to live. At Gravity, we’re much more than just rental accommodation. With a community focussed approach that has multiple layers to it, we’re the ideal living solution for those moving into the area. Especially for those who need to relocate for work. When you’re new to an area, it can be quite daunting. But with Gravity, we really focus on creating a community that is ready to both welcome and support as much as they can.”

Susanna Rock, Co-Founder and CIO, Gravity

Located in the heart of Reading in RG1 – one of the town’s most sought after postcodes – Gravity Royal Heights is a ten minute walk to Reading station which is ideal for London commuters.

Reading is home to some of the world’s largest tech brands including Visa, Ericsson, Huawei, Oracle and Virgin Media, and is known as the Silicon Valley of the UK. With many offices close by (Visa, being less than a minutes’ walk from the property), Gravity will work alongside resident companies, not only to provide accommodation to staff living locally, but also to support with corporate relocation. Gravity’s hassle-free living experience can help fast growing companies attract talent in today’s highly competitive environment by providing best in class accommodation and taking care of all the typical pain points faced by young professionals who need to relocate. Well-known in the capital as a destination for entrepreneurs, Gravity will also support the numerous start-ups that have made Reading their home.

“Technology is a big part of our DNA at Gravity which is why we want to be where tech is thriving. It’s exactly why we’ve come here. As more and more companies base themselves out of Reading, there are some exciting opportunities to work with developments such as Green Park Business Park and Thames Valley Park which we know we can provide a lot of support to.”

Riccardo Tessaro, Co-Founder and CEO, Gravity
