BOXPARK Croydon to open in early 2016

The London Borough of Croydon has announced a deal to open a new BOXPARK Marketplace next to East Croydon train station. BOXPARK, which opened the world’s first pop-up mall in Shoreditch in 2011, has teamed up with Croydon Council, Schroder UK Real Estate Fund (SREF) and Stanhope plc. to bring forward a new BOXPARK at Ruskin Square, Croydon. Work on BOXPARK Croydon is set to begin immediately with an opening scheduled for summer 2016. BOXPARK, which is constructed of stripped and refitted shipping containers, has been designed by Gavin Elliott of architecture practice BDP and will include 80 units arranged around a covered courtyard space made available for year-round events. In line with its Shoreditch forerunner, BOXPARK Croydon will focus on small independent retailers to create a unique shopping and dining experience. This will transform the quality of the retail and leisure offer in Croydon and is expected to draw customers and new businesses from across South London, Surrey and Sussex. Offering a click and collect service, BOXPARK Marketplace will allow customers to physically shop for products in-stores, as well as purchase and share items online and on their mobile.
