It’s official. ‘The Piano’ will replace The Point in Central Milton Keynes.


Inspired by the MK grid – Hammerson’s new design wins approval
The original Point (c) Mark Coster

After seven years of, at times, fierce debate the fate of The Point has been sealed. Members of the Council’s planning committee voted unanimously to approve Hammerson’s final designs to replace The Point, saying this was a building that would stand the test of time.

In a late condition attached to the approval, the original Point cannot be demolished until the owners are ready to start building its replacement, and as a mark of how keen the Council is to see this prime site brought back to life, the applicant has two years to get started before the consent expires.

    Another non-descript Lego building to replace the iconic Point. Take a look at the amazing buildings being built at any other U.K. city.
