The London Borough of Brent has approved plans to build London’s largest Boxpark in Wembley Park.
Boxpark Wembley is a joint venture between Quintain and Boxpark and is set to open later this year.
It will house 27 independent food and beverage operators, a 20,000sq ft dedicated events space and 300 capacity venue.
Roger Wade, founder and CEO of Boxpark, said: “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.”
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. 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.”
The first Boxpark launched in 2010 in Shoreditch offering 43 traders. Boxpark Croydon followed in October 2016 which has 40 traders set in over 90 shipping containers.
