A major shopping centre in Milton Keynes will undergo a £60 million revamp over the next three years as part of the next stages of its redevelopment.
While the first stage of Centre:MK’s refurbishment – which includes the £10 million renovation of Sunset Walk, the centre’s new premium quarter – was recently completed, the second phase will see the shopping centre undergo a complete overhaul.
It aims to offer customers brand new facilities, including a new 1400 space multi-levelled car park next to John Lewis.
The next phase will also improve the Deer Walk area and includes new customer service lounges, family facilities and public toilets.
Some of the money spent on the revamp will be directed towards initiatives such as an Centre:mk app, website, social media platform and digital wayfinding.
Centre:MK’s joint owners Hermes Investment Management and AustralianSuper said the refurbishment aims to ensure the shopping centre meets the needs of shoppers.
“Centre:MK plays a significant role regionally as we provide a critical mass and diversity of offer unavailable elsewhere,” centre director Kevin Duffy said.
“The investment in the malls, wayfinding, facilities and customer service will collectively allow us to build upon the place making we have created and further improve the space.
“These plans ensure Centre:MK is always relevant for the consumer and retailers and will create a refreshing, exciting and modern look and feel within the iconic destination.”
