Bridge to make way for Primark

Developers plan a £40m extension to Milton Keynes’ listed shopping centre.

The project includes the partial removal of the Secklow Gate road bridge, which spans the 1.2m sq ft thecentre:mk shopping complex.

It would mark the first major change to the listed structure, which dates from the new town’s inception in the 1970s.

Landlords Hermes and Prupin have secured fashion retailer Primark as tenant of the proposed new 90,000 sq ft store, which can be built only once the bridge is removed.

A £27m extension and refurbishment of the centre’s John Lewis store is in progress and £10.5m worth of improvement are also planned this year for stores run by Next and House of Fraser.

Hermes Real Estate investment management asset manager Ben Tolhurst said: “We are firmly committed to the development and evolution of thecentre:mk.”
