Central Milton Keynes Shopping Centre The Milton Keynes Development Corporation began work on the original "Shopping Building" in 1973 as the centrepiece of Central Milton Keynes. The design followed the envisaged glass-covered shopping streets or arcades on the scale of The Galleria in Milan. It formed a glass-and-steel envelope for 130 shops and six department stores, arranged down two parallel daylit streets, planted with tropical and temperate trees. With a length of 720 metres, it was said to contain the longest shopping mall in the world.
