I love the way people are already writing off box park when it hasn't even opened. I think it's a positive move for Croydon in what would otherwise be a worringly bleak high street.

The places they've got opening there are wicked.

It's a food and drink retail park.. one outlet is curiously named MEATLiquor. Sure some of the faithful Will be along shortly to post some suitably smutty remarks ..

Presumably will actually be called Beouf Burgignon(?) when the area really takes off.

Reminds me of only fools and horses. Beef stew for £1.50 becomes beef burgignon for £5 to the yuppies

Areas that have been regenerated, rejuvenated, or gentrified are the equivalent of people who win "the most improved player" award at the end of season party. All it means is they are slightly less s*** than one were, but still dreadful.

Anyone getting excited over boxpark, or shopping centres and the like should seriously revaluate what makes a place good.

Iceland = bad.
Fair trade coffee house = good.

Have to agree with you and SW17.

Croydon town centre needs regeneration, whether shops is the answer who knows but it needs something.

When I moved to Croydon it was the place to visit outside of London. Look at it now

 


the dignified don't even enter in the game

not slating Boxpark at all, just the clientele that, after the hoo haa of it being opened, will loiter and fester in the area. The skanky 'yoot' and the 'homeless'.

I know! I holidayed in Liverpool if that's marginally better too? To be fair, Brum has some cool things... Chinatown, Black Country Museum, Cadbury's world and... um... the Bullring...?

WTF is a BoxPark?

Is it like a fox hat? Whenever I tell anyone I'from Bromley they tell me to "wear a fox hat".

A new fancy place where they sell new fancy food from all around the world; it's opening next to East Croydon station.

It's worked in other parts of London to be fair, and it's better than putting another chicken shop and/or Spoons, surely? Slag it off, but it's a lot better than that, which would, as you say, certainly attract the 'yoots' and the 'homeless.'

same sort of thing in Shoreditch , dalston , Brixton and lewisham ,ive been to a few of them and they are a great night out . if you like craft beers , basic cheap cocktails and different street food like banh , sliders , tacos , jerk and stuff its brilliant . your average erbert will not like it so doubt they will go.

There's nothing wrong with it, but then if that's all you can do, it gets a bit boring. Why would I travel to Croydon to do that every week when I do that in Wallington already? I hate hipsters as much as the next person, but to call it all pretentious is a bit of a stretch when it diversifies what you can do...
