Date: December 2018
Location: Avebury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, UK
No. of Keys: 180
Seller: Vacant land
Buyer: Dominvs Group, owners of several hotels such as Crowne Plaza Aberdeen, The Dixon London, Holiday Inn Manchester as well as residential and commercial developers.
The proposals for Avebury Boulevard were lodged by Dominvs Group earlier this year.
Under the plans, which were given the go-ahead by Milton Keynes Council earlier this week (6 November 2018), a ten-storey hotel with 180 bedrooms and a green roof-top would be constructed on the vacant land.
Parking reconfiguration would also be carried out to provide a servicing/drop-off area outside the venue.
The outline application was approved subject to a number of conditions, including that work begins within three years.
McAleer & Rushe is contractor for the scheme and the hotel was designed by Urban Innovations.
THPT Comment: Dominvs are proving to be an exciting new-ish entrant to the UK hotel scene. THPT understands this might not be the only new hotel in Milton Keynes centre to be announced this year.
