BDP is working with Boxpark, the pop-up mall specialist, on plans to develop 10 new sites over the next five years including its first sites outside London.

The specialist food and retail park developer currently has three outlets made out of refitted shipping containers across the capital in Shoreditch (pictured), Croydon and Wembley. BDP worked on the Wembley and Croydon outlets.

The company has also announced the launch of two new concepts – BoxOffice and BoxHall. 

BoxOffice is a co-working space which will be incorporated into new Boxpark sites, while the firm said BoxHall will focus on food and drink and be based at city centres across the UK.

The BoxOffice sites will include cinemas and other leisure attractions such as crazy golf and karaoke.

BDP was involved with planning the concept, but Boxpark hasn’t ruled out hiring further architects to work on specific projects in future.
