British Land dishes up new pop-up food concepts at Broadgate

May 12, 2017

Shipping containers in Finsbury Avenue Square have become home to an exciting line-up of five independent street-food operators.

These include WOLF, which offers authentic Italian food akin to a neighbourhood-style restaurant; and Claw Food, serving crab burgers sourced from traceable, sustainable and fresh crabs from Start Bay in Devon, and Yolk, which offers breakfast and lunch including its famous poached egg pots and speciality Black Box Coffee. Two remaining operators are also under offer.

The new pop-up food line-up will be in place until late 2018 whilst British Land progresses the refurbishment of a new office and retail scheme at 1 Finsbury Avenue.

Alice Keown, F&B Asset Manager for British Land, said: “We are really excited that we have the opportunity to work with these young, energetic, creative operators at a relatively early stage in their development, and expect them to flourish at Broadgate. Yolk, WOLF and Claw Food  is an eclectic line-up that will complement the already fantastic offer at Broadgate Circle, and help further establish the campus as an emerging weekend and evening destination.”

Broadgate is at the centre of one of the most exciting and vibrant parts of London.  It connects the creative communities of Spitalfields and Shoreditch with the City, and is adjacent to Liverpool Street Station. Set across 30 acres, Broadgate includes four landscaped squares offering dining, shopping and health clubs. An estimated 65 million people visit Broadgate each year, which is set to increase with the opening of Crossrail in December 2018.

British Land was represented by Davis Coffer Lyons.  The operators represented themselves.
