Residential-led masterplan linked by a boulevard to the east of Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes, UK
332 apartments & 51 townhouses
Milton Keynes is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the UK. With this in mind, the area surrounding Campbell Park to the immediate east of the town was earmarked for development by Milton Keynes Development Partnership, with tp bennett as masterplanner and Crest Nicholson Regeneration delivering the mixed-use scheme.
Surrounded by planted streetscapes, Campbell Park is linked to Milton Keynes by a boulevard, continuing the town’s design tradition. With 383 residential units– a combination of apartments and 51 townhouses – Campbell Park achieves internal coherence and acts as a bridge between Central Milton Keynes and the Grand Union Canal.
“It combines Milton Keynes with a landscape solution associated with the canal system,” says tp bennett’s Nick Hirst.
Beyond the housing area, a tree-lined canal basin hosts a population of narrow boats, providing a local leisure focus with amenities including a restaurant and a nursery. With Phase 1 complete in 2023 and the second phase underway, the scheme has been praised for addressing a shift in demand for waterfront living, providing a mix canal side townhouses and high end apartments to the locals who strive to live and enjoy the desirable waterside location.
