Pop-up mall Boxpark has been granted planning permission to open its biggest site yet, in Wembley.

The London Borough of Brent approved plans for the project, which Boxpark describes as a ‘new casual dining and event destination’, on Wednesday (14 February).

Opening late 2018, the Wembley Park site will house 27 food and beverage operators, 20,000 sq ft of events space and a separate 300-capacity venue.

Shipping container units at the scheme will range in size from 500 sq ft to 1,800 sq ft, and Boxpark says it will announce the food trader occupants over the next few months.

Roger Wade, Boxpark founder and CEO, says the company is looking forward to creating a ‘world class fan village and street food destination’.

The project is part of a 10-year joint venture between Boxpark and developer Quintain, which has been working on regenerating the Wembley Park area since 2004.

The first Boxpark shipping container mall opened in Shoreditch in 2010, followed by a second larger site in Croydon in 2016.
