Wembley Park has already been transformed over the last decade. Quintain’s £3.4billion regeneration of the 85-acre site to date has delivered a 350,000 sq 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.
This year Quintain invited the public to comment on proposals for the next stage in the development of Wembley Park, to help shape this area which is fast becoming one of London’s new vibrant neighbourhoods.
The next phase of the scheme includes:
A three-form entry primary school which will cater for up to 630 pupils.
4,000 more homes. All will have access to communal space as well as secure, underground parking. The homes will include a mix of tenures and include family-sized units as well as one and two-bedroom.
Up to 1.5m sq ft of commercial space on Wembley Park Boulevard, this will include offices and retail, creating up to 7,200 new jobs and generating up to £16.8million additional spending in the local economy.
A seven-acre park with two multi-use games areas and a lake. The park will include clear routes through for pedestrians and cyclists and will provide a safe, welcoming place for people to relax and have fun.
Improved transport connections with a long-term solution for Wembley Stadium’s parking requirement, delivering 3,400 parking spaces on site.
Improvements to public transport, pedestrian crossings and cycle routes as well as improvement to transport options.
