Kennet Island is developed by St James, and the first properties were sold early 2007. It is still being heavily developed, and plans for the future include a new traffic circle allowing easier access from the A33 dual-carriageway onto the estate itself. The Kennet Island development is one of the reasons why Berkeley Group has been able to weather the 2008 recession.
The development is expanding rapidly, with two more phases planned, the latter of the two coinciding with an expansion of Prudential plc, with new office buildings in a nearby industrial estate. In the 'Piazza', the central square of Kennet Island, is where the shops and several water features are located.
