The Point design underwhelming, says campaigner


The design for a new multi-million pound shopping centre to replace one of Milton Keynes' best-known landmarks has been described as "like an explosion in a triangle factory".

The Point was Britain's first multiplex cinema when it opened in 1985. Last year owners Hammerson announced proposals to demolish the building and build a shopping mall.

Feedback from a public consultation held in May last year was taken into account in the new design.

Central Milton Keynes councillor and architecture campaigner Linda Inoki said the plans for the new development were "underwhelming".
