The MK1 Shopping and Leisure Park development is located to the west of the existing MK Stadium and is an enabling component of the overall masterplan for the site. The building has been designed to have prominent and visible retail frontages for its end users to the street scene created between MK1 Shopping Park and the Odeon cinema with its restaurants.
The building provides a total of 10,000 sq ft of retail floor space. There are 5 units within the building which are tailored internally to match specific end user requirements, these currently include JD as the largest anchor unit, Carphone Warehouse and Card Factory.
The main stadium frontage of the building is emphasised by a wide ‘colonnade’ zone with feature tree planting, which links the main entrances of the building and replicates that of the adjacent buildings. The colonnade also provides the framework for ‘brise soleil’ elements to give solar shading to the south facing elevation. Emphasis is given at night by special feature lighting to the colonnade zone providing a suitable night time landmark.
