Boxpark Set To Expand Trading

June 5, 2024

oxpark will expand its presence in London by taking over Buck Street Market in Camden, marking its fifth site in the capital. The trendy hospitality firm announced on Tuesday that it had secured a long-term property management deal with Places for London, Transport for London’s property company, for the Buck Street Market site.

The 12,000 square-foot market, acquired by Places for London in October 2023, will undergo a comprehensive renovation aimed at revitalizing the space. The refurbishment will support over 40 independent food operators and retailers, enhancing the market’s appeal and functionality.

Pending planning permission from Camden Council, the transformation of the north London location will proceed. Simon Champion, CEO of Boxpark, expressed enthusiasm about the project, stating, “It’s an exciting challenge for Boxpark to reinvigorate an iconic destination like Buck Street Market. It’s no secret we have a love of locations beaming with culture and community, and Camden is no different.”

Champion highlighted Camden Town’s rich offerings in food, music, and the arts, aligning perfectly with Boxpark’s ethos. He emphasized Boxpark’s commitment to supporting independent businesses nationwide, noting that this restoration will be one of the most significant takeovers in London this year.

Currently, Buck Street Market hosts 23 retail and 23 food units, operating seven days a week. The planned refurbishment aims to enhance the market’s vibrancy and continue fostering a dynamic community space.
