Saxon Court, the former council offices in the city centre, will be redeveloped into a mix of workspace, homes and community spaces.
Built in 1980, Saxon Court will be retained and repurposed to deliver high-quality workspace for small, medium and large businesses alongside local convenience retail and a new public space for cultural and community use. The adjacent land will deliver homes for individuals and families, already living in or new to Milton Keynes.
First Base and Patron Capital have exchanged on the purchase of MK Council’s former offices at Saxon Court.
And Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners, the architectural firm behind the design of the famous Cheesegrater in London, is responsible for creating the development's plans.
This will be Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners very first scheme outside of London; it is called 'MK Gateway' and will cost £190 million to develop.
MK Gateway will include 185,000 sq ft of Grade A workspace, 285 build-to-rent homes, and shops and cafes at ground level.
It will be built around a new public square and landscaped green spaces.
These plans will be submitted to Milton Keynes Council in 2021, following a public consultation.
