Costa Coffee are coming to Milton Park

Published on: 16/06/2014

Today, MEPC has announced that Costa Coffee is coming to Milton Gate. The drive-through and cafe will be built by MEPC with work expected to start in the next two weeks and to be completed by the end of the year.

Philip Campbell, Head of Leasing and Development at Milton Park, explains, "Milton Gate is the gateway to Didcot and we are keen to engage in opportunities which enhance the local environment beyond the Park. This pre-let to Costa helps to improve the facilities at the Milton Interchange and such a popular brand will attract a broad variety of people, including regular visitors and passing trade."

The drive-through and cafe offering from Costa is an increasingly common option as the UK's favourite coffee brand expands from the high street into petrol forecourts, hotels and on major roads.

Tom Swords, Acquisition Manager at Costa explains; "Part of the long-term strategy for Costa is to provide a perfect cup of coffee in prime travel and transport locations. Milton Gate offers us an excellent opportunity located next to the Milton Interchange on the A34. Our drive-through will become an integral part of a thriving community which includes Milton Park - the second largest business and science park in Europe.

“Through the Milton Park Local Development Order planning permission was achieved quickly which will accelerate the development programme. With a proven track record, we have every confidence in MEPC’s ability to deliver.”

Costa is the second major brand to commit to Milton Gate, following on from the announcement of Ridgeway Volkswagen's new showroom last month. Philip Campbell adds, "Milton Gate is a prime development site with opportunities for a wide range of businesses. MEPC is currently working with several other potential occupiers to bring forward further developments which will be of benefit to the local community as well as making a positive addition to Milton Park. Our next challenge is to secure a business class hotel for this prominent location.”
