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 development and £900 million of investment, Quintain has secured a further £800 million of funding and planning permission to complete our Masterplan. This Masterplan will enable Wembley Park to become the largest build to rent development site in the UK as Quintain has a programme in place for 5,000 homes.
The first chapter of Wembley Park’s transformation into a new destination for London is now complete and is alive with a unique combination of community and attractions. These include the Capital’s only designer shopping outlet, a West-End standard Hilton Hotel and the iconic 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.
It is expected that on completion, Wembley Park will have created over 8,500 permanent new jobs across a range of sectors, in addition to the jobs created during construction.
