Boxpark and Quintain recently secured planning permission for the largest Boxpark to date. The London Borough of Brent granted permission for Boxpark Wembley, a 10-year joint venture between Quintain and Boxpark Ltd, 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 house 27 food and beverage operators, a 20,000 sq ft dedicated events space, and a 300 capacity venue. It 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.
James Saunders, chief operating officer for Quintain, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to say that Boxpark is now officially coming to Wembley Park. 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.
“It 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. Boxpark is officially coming home and we couldn’t be more excited.”
Roger Wade, founder and CEO of Boxpark, added: “I’m delighted that the Boxpark Wembley planning has been approved. We are looking forward to working closely with our development partner Quintain, Brent Council and Wembley Park stakeholders Wembley Stadium, SSE Arena and LDO to deliver a world class fan village and street food destination.”
