Scheme is practice’s first office job in UK outside London

Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners has drawn up its first UK office scheme outside London with a £190m development in Milton Keynes.

The firm behind the Cheesegrater in the City of London has unveiled plans for mixed-use scheme in the city called MK Gateway.

The scheme for developer First Base and investor Patron Capital will include 185,000 sq ft of Grade A workspace incorporating office, co-working and R&D space.

It will also feature 285 build-to-rent homes in a new building with retail and cafés at street level.

MK Gateway will be set around a new public square and landscaped green spaces and is designed to help Milton Keynes hit a net-zero carbon target by 2030.

Plans will be submitted to the local council next year following a public consultation.
