Cushman & Wakefield and Nash Bond have been instructed to lead a new phase of retail and leisure leasing at Wembley Park – Quintain’s 85-acre major new London destination.
A further 180,000 sq ft of space over 42 units is being allocated in nine new buildings across the landmark north-west London scheme. The mixed-use project is set to become the UK’s largest single site for Build-to-Rent homes with over 5,000 to be delivered over the next seven years, all under Quintain’s management.
Building will also be at a pace not seen at any other major development site, with 3,000 homes under construction by the end of 2017. The additional retail and leisure space will help cement Wembley Park’s fast-growing status as an exciting new destination to rival the very best areas of London.
The site’s mix of iconic heritage, new neighbourhood and exciting retail and leisure space makes Wembley Park one of the most exciting developments in Europe, all just 12 minutes from Central London.
Angus Dodd, Quintain Chief Executive, said: “Wembley Park is already a destination alive with activity and experiences and we are constantly improving and enhancing what is on offer. With superb new buildings, excellent transport connections and an exciting programme of events, Wembley Park is going from strength to strength.”
Matt Slade, Quintain Director of Commercial Operations, said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Cushman & Wakefield and Nash Bond. These firms are the best in their field and we have assembled a team that can curate an amazing mix of occupiers for our ground floor spaces that will become a uniquely vibrant retail and leisure place. We envisage this place to be a catalyst for the further economic regeneration of Wembley, with new shops, restaurants and other leisure uses that define distinct districts; from small scale neighbourhood retail to large format food and leisure experiences.”
Justin Taylor, Head of EMEA Retail for Cushman & Wakefield, said: “We are excited to be working on these new retail districts at Wembley Park. We have worked on similar huge developments and recognise Wembley Park’s outstanding potential.
“The scheme has been meticulously planned to be not just somewhere to live, but also a vibrant neighbourhood, alive all year round with the bonus of world-class leisure facilities on its doorstep. Quintain’s vision for Wembley Park is absolutely aligned with ours for the future London and we look forward to helping them deliver it.”
David Bannister, Nash Bond Director, said: “Nash Bond are thrilled about the latest addition to our placemaking resume with a great opportunity to work with Quintain in the creation of a unique retail and leisure destination that will provide the perfect platform for London’s largest PRS development set alongside some of the world’s most iconic live performance and sporting venues."
