Boxpark and Quintain secure planning permission for London’s biggest Boxpark in Wembley Park
The London Borough of Brent has granted Boxpark and Quintain permission for Boxpark Wembley, a 10-year joint venture between Quintain and Boxpark to bring forward a brand-new casual dining and event destination, located directly on Olympic Way (known to fans around the world as the iconic Wembley Way).
Set to open in late 2018, Boxpark Wembley will be positioned in the heart of Wembley Park – an area which is being transformed into a new creative district for London. The arrival of Boxpark, home to some of the UK’s most innovative street food operators and cutting-edge events, further cements the area’s emergence as one of London’s most exciting new locations.
Boxpark Wembley will house 27 food and beverage operators, a 20,000-sq ft dedicated events space and 300-capacity venue. Boxpark Wembley has been designed to cater for the millions of visitors who come to the area every year for world class sport, music and shopping, as well as the growing community in Wembley Park, where over 7,000 new homes, 500,000 sq ft of retail and leisure and 630,000 sq ft of Grade A office space is being delivered. It is anticipated that 20,000 people will call Wembley Park home by 2027.
James Saunders, chief operating officer of Quintain, said: “The opening will mark as huge step change in the transformation for the area, adding to the growing offer of shops, homes and activity already here. Set to open later this year, Boxpark Wembley will be a new destination for local people and the growing number of visitors to the area, to experience some of the best street food London has to offer.”
