Boxpark Wembley to open on 8 December
Boxpark Wembley, the largest site to-date for the pop-up mall pioneer, will open on Saturday 8 December at Quintain’s £3bn Wembley Park development.
Ugly Dumpling, Nanny Bills, Smoky Boys, Mitsuryu and Cut + Grind are among the street food vendors that will open at Boxpark this December, which will be home to 27 independent traders and a 20,000-sq ft event space. Boxpark Wembley will be situated in The Village, one of the four distinct retail districts that make up the 85-acre mixed-use Wembley Park site, which recently welcomed artisanal coffee shop, Blacksheep.
Matt Slade, retail director at Quintain, said: “The opening of Boxpark Wembley will mark a monumental milestone in the regeneration of Wembley Park. With a unique mix of world flavours and social spaces, it’s exciting to add another dimension to Wembley Park’s legendary leisure offer, and somewhere that caters to both event day attendees and the growing local resident and worker population.”
In addition to Boxpark, by 2020 Wembley Park will be home to over 40 new shops, restaurants and services, complementing the current retail and casual dining offer at London Designer Outlet. It is set to attract over 20 million visitors a year upon completion, with over £300m annual retail spend predicted, putting it ahead of London districts such as Camden, Victoria and Ealing Broadway.
