New office space is on the cards in central Milton Keynes as plans for a five-storey office block have been submitted to the Council for approval. The complex – Victoria House – will be developed on Grafton Park, subject to approval being granted.
The applicant is Frontier Estates (Investments) Limited, a successful UK property development company that was established in 1996. Frontier Estates has completed about 150 projects covering all sectors of the market – including office space, industrial, food stores, healthcare, residential and hospitality. In total Frontier have developed or secured consent for more than 10 million sq ft of floor space, an impressive achievement.
The application includes plans for a 4,500 sq metre building that incorporates both office space and a restaurant/cafe on the ground floor. The building would be constructed next to the Jaipur building on Avebury Boulevard, in the business district of central Milton Keynes. The Milton Keynes Central railway station is around 400 metres away, giving the site excellent transport links.
According to the design and access statement, the building is intended to be “easily subdivided floor by floor & wing by wing”, allowing flexibility for different sizes of establishment. The building also “encourages alternative modes of transport through secure cycle storage, locker and showering facilities”. Frontier Estates’ plans include space for 49 cars and 28 cycles.
The planning application is now to be considered by Milton Keynes council.
