Pop-up revolutionary, Boxpark have announced a joint venture with Quintain to open Boxpark Wembley in late 2018. The exciting new destination for shopping, dining and events in North West London will be located in the heart of Wembley Park, an 85-acre site undergoing regeneration by Quintain predicted to be the country’s largest build-to-rent development.
Boxpark Wembley will be the third of its kind in the capital, with the other two in Shoreditch and Croydon. The venue will include up to 29 independent and aspiring food and beverage traders. Set out in a bespoke layout covering 4,000 sq m on Olympic Way, it will create a new entertainment space for those living in, working at and visiting Wembley Park.
Roger Wade, Boxpark’s creator and CEO, said:
“I’m delighted to announce the opening of the third Boxpark site, Boxpark Wembley. Boxpark Wembley is located in an iconic location, on Olympic Way in Wembley Park. We look forward to working closely with Quintain, Brent Council, and the other venue operators on the site, to develop a world class food, drink and entertainment destination, and possibly the best fan park in the world!”Wembley Park is already home to thousands of residents and welcomes over 11 million visitors each year. It is also one of the most connected corners of north London and benefits from a wide range of attractive public spaces, housing developments and office and workspaces. Boxpark Wembley hopes to establish itself as part of the growing developments in the area and provide an alternative place to eat, drink and play.”
Following this, Angus Dodd, the Chief Executive of Quintain who are currently heading up the renovations at Wembley Park, said:
“We’re pleased to be able to announce that Wembley Park is soon to be home to Boxpark Wembley. We are working hard to ensure that Wembley Park is an exciting place to rent and live in London and this brand new space is another way in which we are demonstrating that. Boxpark Wembley will open up Wembley Park to a whole new audience and we are looking forward to welcoming them, along with those that live and work here already, as we work closely with Boxpark to deliver this new exciting venue for London.
