UK practice bblur architecture received funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to begin the Slough regeneration in the UK.
Funds worth £11m ($16.6m) will be used to deliver the proposed bus station and culture centre project featuring a new library, performance area and adult learning area.
The project will also involve building 1,600 new homes, 34,000m² of office space, a hotel, and new public realm and highway improvements.
Demolition work of the Brunel bus station and redundant office building has already begun, according to architectsjournal.co.uk.
The cultural centre is expected to be complete in 2011.
