October saw US Investment Banking giant Goldman Sachs announce that it was taking new office Space in Milton Keynes, as it rolls out its consumer banking business “Marcus” in the UK. The site is expected to open in 2019 and create 150 jobs, This is the first office that Goldman Sachs have opened outside London.

As a very busy 2018 draws to a close, we have much to look forward to in 2019. From the hotly anticipated re-opening of MK Gallery to the delivery of two major new public art commissions by Something and Son and Sarah Staton, we also look forward to welcoming Raumlaborberlin to MK to deliver the first ever Festival of Creative Urban Living in September 2019.
