A long-awaited 580,000 sq ft "sister" to the recently-revamped Camden Market is to open on Friday in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.
The canal-side Hawley Wharf development, owned by billionaire entrepreneur Teddy Sagi’s investment firm LabTech, will offer a Curzon cinema, a host of indie retail and leisurebrands and 10 foodie restaurants including HotBox and BaoziInn.
Brands taking up spaces include including streetwear brand Marbek, in a collaboration with MrSneaker, skate brand Scum, 100% vegan and natural skincare brand SknFed, and hairdresser Butchers Salon.
There will also be a new offering, Camden Boxing Club, from Fitzrovia's Rathbone Boxing Club's operator, The Boxing House.
Later this year, occupancy is set to increase to include 150 stores and 60 food outlets. The complex also contains 195 apartments.
LabTech already overhauled the iconic Camden Market and launched food space Buck Street Market up the road by Camden Station last year, just weeks before lockdown hit.
Company commercial director, Maggie Milosavljevic, told the Standard Hawley Wharf will "bring to life this part of Camden".
She said LabTech's "commitment to the area of Camden remains", and said: "We're especially proud as it will be the first development to open in London since Covid restrictions lifted."
"We have seen an increase in appetite from traders in the F&B, retail and entertainment space which we believe will help to drive local and eventually tourist footfall to the area."
