West Brompton Crossing will be a one-stop experience for eating, drinking and shopping. A place to discover a carefully curated mix of independent brands, thoughtfully designed spaces and interesting events, the pop-up high street will be mews-inspired, with colourful shop fronts and contemporary interiors.
Getting set for a very tasty launch is the Incipio Group who will open ‘The Prince’ on 16 November. The team behind the hugely successful ‘Pergola on the Roof’ is bringing a closed pub and five other buildings back into temporary use, with feature restaurants including ‘Patty & Bun’, ‘The Begging Bowl’, ‘MAM’ and ‘Rabbit’.
The remainder of West Brompton Crossing will bring new retail to the area. Flexible retail spaces will showcase emerging brands and new local talent. The project will also aim to prioritise jobs and opportunities for local people with an extensive programme of community initiatives. ‘The Crossing’ will be a unique community space available for local businesses, schools, artists and designers to use, display and sell their work. It comes with all amenities included – electricity, Wi-Fi and water are free of charge, plus a selection of modular furniture to enable a flexible fit-out for each tenant to minimise set-up costs.
“West Brompton Crossing is going to be a vibrant and exciting temporary addition for this part of Earls Court. We have long-term plans for the redevelopment of Earls Court, which will ultimately create thousands of new homes, a new park for London, and create 10,000 jobs” Mike Hood, Group Development Director, Capco.
West Brompton Crossing will open in phases from 16 November 2017, and will operate until late 2019.
