The planned Milton Keynes City Centre developments we are still waiting for

    It seems that Milton Keynes has a constant stream of new hotels, developments and more announced every week.

    Back in 2018, we ran an article about how the Milton Keynes City Centre skyline might change in 2019.

    But 18 months later, there's still lots of new developments we are still waiting for.

    In March 2018, we told you about how the green light had been given to the new 'tallest building in town' (at the time) with a 14-storey luxury hotel planned to be built near John Lewis in the City Centre.

    'Hotel La Tour', which at the time was due to open in 2020, will be the tallest building in the Milton Keynes City Centre, with a top floor viewing platform included as part of the plans.

    Part of the new plans include a public viewing area and art installation on the top floor as well as leisure facilities, conference rooms and a rooftop bar and restaurant.

    We had an update on this one a few weeks ago - with an opening date of 2022 now predicted.

    MoxyThen in June 2018, details of another new hotel and multi-storey car park were unveiled, this time close to The Hub.

    A 256 bedroom Marriott 'Moxy Hotel' is planned for the site, with Moxy currently boasting outlets in New York, London and Milan.

    The rooms in the hotel are described as 'small but expertly designed' and the lobby is 'the place to be', according to travel website ShermansTravel.

    The hotel is now expected to open in the summer of 2021.

    Away from the hotel scene, and plans for 'New City Place' were revealed by MKFM back in July 2018 aiming to replicate the success of The Hub.

    New City Place will be located on Midsummer Boulevard between The Hub and the Central Rail Station, opposite Wetherspoons.

    Enquiries were being taken for the office space, on one side of the piazza, which will comprise of 16 floors and a total of 253,000 square feet of space.

    200 'luxurious' apartments will fill the opposite side spread over 24 floors, with a full concierge reception on the first floor.

    A rooftop restaurant over two floors will sit on top of the apartment block, giving stunning views over Milton Keynes from 28 floors above ground.

    There will also be an open public viewing gallery from the 29th floor of the second block.

    We don't yet have a confirmed opening date.
