Wembley Park has already been transformed over the last decade. Quintain’s regeneration of the 85-acre site to date has delivered a 350,000sq ft London Designer Outlet, a four-star Hilton hotel, Brent Civic Centre, student accommodation with 600 apartments, 525 new homes, including 285 affordable apartments, as well as a £26million refurbishment of the listed 1934 Wembley Arena (now called The SSE Arena) with a £10million new public square creating a focal point for the area.
Quintain’s original 2004 planning permission was for the land immediately around the Stadium. However, the team was able to buy more land north east of Engineers Way and adapt the scheme to provide more green space in Wembley Park and create a better layout of buildings, enhancing connectivity across the area.
Commercial uses will be focused to the west of the Stadium around the pedestrianised Wembley Park Boulevard and a quieter residential district is planned around a large new green open park.
