YMCA Flagship Building


£13m nine-storey tall YMCA campus is completed in Central Milton Keynes. The project is intended to transform the lives of young people in MK.
It will provide much-needed housing and employment opportunities and deliver real social value for those who need it most.

It involved toppling the existing 1970s-built YMCA facility on North Seventh Street and building a new high-rise block on half of the space.

The other half was used for a high-rise block of 250 apartments to be sold privately.

The new YMCA building consists of 199 apartments, accompanying offices, community facilities and commercial units.
