Boxpark, a dining and retail space made with shipping containers, is to launch its third venture, Boxpark Wembley, in late 2018 in Wembley Park.
It follows the successes of the Shoreditch and Croydon sites which opened in 2010 and 2016 respectively.
Boxpark Wembley will take inspiration from the former sites, however it will have a completely new and bespoke building design and will be the first to have a roof. It will have 29 units for established and independent food operators.
It will work closely with the local community to host a series of live music, events, talks and workshops which will take place in the 2000-capacity events space, or the more intimate 300 capacity venue.
Roger Wade, founder and CEO, Boxpark, 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 sees over 11 million visitors every year and is home to over 6000 people.
Angus Dodd, chief executive of Quintain, which is delivering 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."
