Creating a new London destination
Wembley Park was first noted as a destination for Londoners in 1894, when Sir Edward Watkin opened it to the public as a leisure destination, just 12 minutes from Baker Street Station on the Metropolitan Line.
Today, after 10 years of investment and seven years of development, Quintain has completed the first chapter of Wembley Park’s transformation into a new destination for London with a unique combination of attractions. These include the Capital’s only designer shopping outlet, a West-End standard Hilton Hotel and the historic SSE Arena, Wembley all right next to the world-famous National Stadium. 1.8 million sq ft of construction has been completed to date, with a further 6 million sq ft left to deliver.
London Designer Outlet opens
473 Homes at Emerald Gardens
The focus now is on residential development: the Company holds outline planning consent for 5,000 new homes at Wembley Park and construction of 473 homes at Emerald Gardens is due for completion in early 2016.
These 473 homes will be arranged in seven buildings of various heights around an acre of private gardens. Residents will be within minutes' walk of both Wembley Park tube station and the restaurants, shops and cinema within London Designer Outlet. Most importantly, they will be living somewhere where the big spirit for which Wembley is renowned combines with the human scale we all want from the place where we live.
