Double deal secured at Milton Keynes’ Midsummer Place

20th March 2024 | Jack Oliver

Ellandi has secured a major double deal at Midsummer Place in Milton Keynes, with Sports Direct and Lane7 set to join the scheme.

The 50,000 sq ft Sports Direct store will offer a range of footwear, clothing, and equipment, and feature more brands from the Frasers Group with concessions from USC, Evans Cycles, and GAME.

Meanwhile, bowling operator Lane7 will take 40,000 sq ft for its 18th opening in the UK.

Both brands will be taking space in the former three storey Next Beauty & Home unit, with Lane7 occupying the basement floor.

Simon Anderson, asset management director at Ellandi, said: “Securing both Frasers Group’s Sports Direct, and Lane7 for Midsummer Place demonstrates both confidence in the market as well as highlighting the opportunity at Midsummer Place. These brands will complement the recent re-development of The Boulevard F&B quarter. We are transforming the centre, and in addition to the physical changes we are curating a very attractive tenant mix. This brings us one step closer to realising our vision to create a high-end, quality destination.”

These signings follow the recently completed development of the scheme’s boulevard which has seen the opening of eight independent luxury cabins to create a food court, providing cuisines from around the world alongside recognised F&B occupiers such as Leon, Starbucks, and Pret A Manger.
