Midsummer Place has released images revealing plans for the regeneration of its Boulevard.
Earlier this month, a planning application was submitted to turn the Boulevard into a 'place for shoppers to dine and relax in a vibrant environment'.
Today (22/7), the shopping centre has revealed the plans to residents. The images shared show new natural wooden exterior on the existing restaurants, such as Leon, and also plans for two more 'well-known brands'.
There are also plans for small independent or established food operators to offer cuisine in cabins,
As well as a makeover on existing units, and more to come, the plans also include additional seating and an event space for performances.
Midsummer Place say these could include 'live music, dance, theatre, children’s craft activities, community arts and more'.
The makeover is expected to be complete by Christmas.
Shelley Peppard, General Manager at Midsummer Place says we can expect more places to eat: “We have some incredibly exciting new eateries joining Midsummer Place in both the permanent units and the cabins, which will be announced in due course.
“Over the past few years, we have welcomed several new eateries to Midsummer Place including, Souv-Lucky Day Greek Gyros, Beirut Cuisine and most recently LEON and we look forward to welcoming more. The new development will become a focal place for people visiting the City Centre and be a welcome addition to the overall offering Midsummer Place has.”
Work is expected to start in the autumn and be completed over two months – just in time for Christmas.
Asset Manager from Ellandi, the Asset Management company, Tom Ellams, said: “Midsummer Place is a premium shopping destination that sits in the heart of one of the fastest growing cities in the UK. It presents an attractive proposition for food, retail and leisure operators that will benefit from the high footfall that Central Milton Keynes offers, plus the continued development in and around the new City.”
