Design plans for a four star luxury, boutique hotel in Milton Keynes are now underway, following successful planning permission. The 250-bed hotel will be located on Marlborough Gate and it will include conference and meeting room services, a gym, spa and pool facilities, as well as a rooftop restaurant that will offer fantastic views over central Milton Keynes.
Designed by pHp Architects, the scheme will feature an eye-catching design that will create the illusion of the sun on the east side of the hotel off Midsummer Boulevard.
“We are delighted to receive the green light for the Milton Keynes hotel development. Our emphasis is on quality and the entire building design team have certainly delivered above and beyond that in their plans,” said Mark Stuart, managing director at Hotel La Tour, the owners of the development. “Hotel La Tour Milton Keynes will fill a much needed luxury services gap within the area and bring life and connectivity to it. It will also create approximately 200 new jobs as we recruit and develop local talent.”
The next stage of design planning has already started for Couch Perry Wilkes (CPW), the engineers providing the mechanical, engineering and plumbing expertise, as well as the BREEAM assessor role. The other companies part of the project are Gleeds, pHp Architects and Scott, White and Hookins Structural & Civil Engineers and Sharps Redmore Acoustics.
“We are busy developing client specific solutions to ensure that the guests and staff have the best possible experience when visiting and working in the hotel. We are therefore working with specialist designers for interior design, audio visual, spa specialists and artists working on commissions within the development,” explained Matt Wrate, director at CPW.
The cost and project management services for the project are provided by international property and construction consultancy Gleeds.
