Our history

Established in 1992, Quintain brings London property and places to life through investment and development.

Wembley Park

Wembley Park

Our most famous project is Wembley Park, covering approximately 85 acres of land around the UK's largest National Stadium in North West London. To date we have completed more than 1,000 homes and mixed use development at Wembley, including London's first outlet centre which now attracts 7 million visitors a year. This year we will have 3,000 homes under construction on this site, with outline consent in place for the delivery of a further 3,000.

Previously, we were instrumental in the conception of Greenwich Peninsula, a 15,000-home development around The O2 in South East London that is now controlled by Knight Dragon.

Wembley Park

The Wembley Park scheme began through Quintain's acquisition of approximately 44 acres of exhibition land and car parks surrounding the National Stadium in 2002. Subsequent land purchases have expanded our ownership to 85 acres, creating one of the largest urban regeneration sites in Europe.

Having secured planning consent for an initial 5.3 million sq ft of development, work began in 2006 on the modernisation of Wembley Arena – still the UK’s most famous music and entertainment venue – including creating a new front door to the building facing the National Stadium and Arena Square, which previously had been service yard. Through a series of further planning permissions Quintain currently has consent for a total of 8.8 million sq ft of development, including 7,000 homes.

The first 1,000 new homes are already completed, alongside a West-End standard 361-bedroom Hilton Hotel, fantastic new public spaces and London Designer Outlet, bringing over 70 shops and restaurants alongside a multi-screen cinema and children’s playpark to Wembley. Today more than twice as many people visit London Designer Outlet each year as they do the stadium and arena combined.

In early 2017 Quintain announced its intention to develop 5,000 built to rent homes at Wembley Park, creating the largest single-site build to rent development anywhere in the UK.


Now, with planning and funding secured, Wembley Park is set to become the largest Build to Rent development site in the UK.

Greenwich Peninsula

Greenwich Peninsula

The O2

Following a land swap in 1999, the Company acquired 18.5 acres of land which now constitutes part of the Greenwich Peninsula scheme immediately to the south of The O2. Quintain and its development partner secured permission for 14.1 million sq ft of development on the scheme in 2004, including consent to create 10,000 new homes for the capital.

AEG were introduced to the scheme and have now transformed The Dome into The O2.

In November 2013, we sold our interest to Knight Dragon, in a deal worth £186 million.
