Boxpark Wembley agrees terms for 75% of units, three-month waiting list for applications:
Boxpark Wembley has agreed terms for 75% of its units. Operators to sign up include US chicken brand Wingstop, Shake Shack, and street food operators The Ugly Dumplings, Poptata and The Athenian. Boxpark said it had received unprecedented demand for units and was running a three-month waiting list for new applications. Opening later this year, Boxpark Wembley will be its largest venue to date. At the heart of the rapidly developing Wembley Park, the 24-unit, 2,000-capacity venue will feature independent food and beverage vendors, secured by agents CWM, alongside 20,000 square feet of events space. Units range from 500 to 1,800 square feet and the venue, a partnership with developer Quintain, will be Boxpark’s first fully indoor site. Boxpark founder and chief executive Roger Wade said: “There is a real mix of food offerings we think locals and visitors will enjoy.” Boxpark is currently seeking open land or vacant plots within mixed-use development schemes as it gears up for further expansion. “London and other major cities” are preferred, with space ranging from 10,000 to 100,000 square feet. Leasehold requirements are for a minimum of five years, but Boxpark said it would also consider freehold sites.
