New leisure facilities bring new dimensions to Campbell Wharf
Milton Keynes Development Partnership’s (MKDP) vision of a thriving canal-side community at Campbell Wharf continues to take shape with the news that its development partner, Crest Nicholson, has exchanged contracts on three commercial units.
Local business Canal St Coffee will open its second speciality coffee bar following the success of its first outlet in Leighton Buzzard. Serving high-quality coffee and food, their ambition is to provide a place for residents and visitors alike to socialise, conduct business and lounge as well as promoting local artistry, culture, and commerce.
For those in Campbell Wharf and the wider city looking to get fit and in shape, PT Workspace will be offering dedicated studio space for personal trainers to use with their clients.
Building on the success of the first two seasons of cruising from Campbell Wharf, the Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust is set lease office and storage space to provide shore-based support to Electra, an all-electric volunteer-run narrow boat. Electra offers the community, either on public cruises or private charters, the opportunity of seeing a different perspective of the city on relaxing cruises along the 11-mile stretch of the Grand Union Canal that winds its way through Milton Keynes and its parks.
Matthew Green, Property Development Director at MKDP said, “It’s great to see two independent businesses signing up to take commercial space at Campbell Wharf; both Bogota Coffee and PT Workspace will bring an added vibrancy to the leisure and retail offer already at the scheme. We’re also very pleased that the dedicated team of volunteers, who put in so much time and hard work running Electra, will have a physical home at Campbell Wharf”.
