Xscape buildings have conspicuous design features, unusual shapes and large sizes. Xscape buildings, named after the company that created them, X-Leisure, tend to house real snow indoor ski slopes, sports centers, malls and other leisure facilities.
At 144 feet high, the Xscape Milton Keynes exemplifies the large size of Xscape buildings. It is the second-tallest building in Milton Keynes and is clearly seen on the skyline of the city. More than 3.5 million people visit the Xscape Milton Keynes each year, and the building is over 431,739 square feet in size.
