The ‘pop-up’ street food and retail mall business, which opened its first site in 2010, currently operates three London locations in Shoreditch, Croydon and Wembley.
The group now hopes to expand the business across the UK with the launch of its new BoxOffice and BoxHall concepts, and has appointed JLL to acquire the sites as well as lease them. JLL has also been appointed as joint leasing agent on all existing Boxpark sites.
BoxOffice will be the larger of the two developments, and is designed as a way to incorporate a co-working spaces into new Boxpark sites.
The BoxOffice sites will be between 50,000 and 150,000sq ft in size, and set over four to six floors.
Ground floors will feature a Boxpark streetfood and bar area, with the first floor designated for leisure operators including cinemas, crazy golf and karaoke, and two to four floors of co-working space above that.
The second concept, BoxHall, will be smaller - 10,000 to 20,000sq ft – F&B-focused destinations that will each feature between six and 12 street food vendors.
So far Boxpark is yet to announce where in the UK it will look to expand to, but earlier this year it signed a lease to open its first restaurant site outside London, on Shoreham beach, West Sussex
“Boxpark has always been an innovator in the retail and leisure sector, and these brand new formats demonstrate our investment in continuing to evolve both the brand and the sites we build and operate,” says Boxpark founder and CEO Roger Wade.
