Boxpark gets Wembley pitch approval
Plans for London’s largest Boxpark in Wembley have been approved by the London Borough of Brent.
Similar to its steel-framed predecessor in Croydon, Boxpark Wembley will feature a selection of independent and established food traders from across London and around the world, as well as a major 2,000 capacity arena space for large scale events, and a BoxBar, stocked with a top selection of craft beers, fine wines and spirits, for more intimate events.
Boxpark’s Creator and CEO Roger Wade said: “I’m delighted to announce the opening of the third Boxpark site. 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!”
Quintain Chief Executive Angus Dodd said: “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.”
Boxpark Wembley will be created by BDP, the team behind the award-winning design of Boxpark Croydon. BDP’s Chairman, Gavin Elliott, is keen to get started on the new project:
Boxpark Wembley is scheduled to open its doors towards the end of 2018.
