Fri 22nd Sep 2017 - Boxpark Wembley to launch in late 2018 with ‘real street food focus’
Boxpark Wembley to launch in late 2018 with ‘real street food focus’: The third Boxpark site will open in Wembley Park in late 2018 and have a “real street food focus”. The concept launched in Shoreditch five years ago, with Boxpark Croydon opening in October last year. Boxpark Wembley will feature a bespoke design, with 29 units for established and independent food operators. The venue will also offer a programme of more than 200 events a year, mirroring the framework of community-focused events at Boxpark’s other sites. Boxpark Wembley will work closely with the local community to host live music, events, talks and workshops at a 2,000-capacity events space and separate 300-capacity venue. Boxpark development director Matthew McMillan told Propel: “Boxpark Wembley will have a real street food focus – basically we’re taking the best bits from Croydon and making them better. The whole street food scene is so vibrant across the UK, particularly in London. You’ve got new entrants coming on the scene on a daily basis. We plan to have a mix of up-and-coming street food operators and more established names. We will be going to planning later this year and the aim is to be up and running in 12 months’ time.” Boxpark founder and chief executive Roger Wade said: “Boxpark Wembley is in an iconic location on Olympic Way in Wembley Park. We look forward to working closely with (owner and developer) Quintain, Brent Council and venue operators on the site to develop a world-class food, drink and entertainment destination, and possibly the best fan park in the world!” Gavin Elliott, chairman of architects BDP Manchester, which designed Boxpark Croydon, added: “It’s great to ‘get the band back together’ to design another Boxpark with Roger and his team. The Boxpark Wembley scheme is a significant evolution of the food and beverage model we developed in Croydon, and takes our thinking to a new level.” Quintain chief executive Angus Dodd said: “Boxpark Wembley will open up Wembley Park to a whole new audience.” As well as more than 11 million visitors a year to its shops, restaurants, bars and hotels, Wembley Park is already home to more than 6,000 people with construction to start on another 3,000 homes by the end of the year. Boxpark Wembley will be part of the £2bn investment currently under way at Wembley Park.
