A new multi-million pound event space called Magazine London is set to open in summer 2019.
Construction of the venue – a joint project between Venue Lab (a Vibration Group company) and property and investment specialist Knight Dragon – is due to get under way in December. Venue Lab was also responsible for Printworks and Landing Forty Two.
The building was designed by world renowned architect Nissen Richards, whose impressive portfolio includes the V&A Lecture Theatre and Seoul Opera House.
Vibration Group Strategy & creative director, Simeon Aldred said: "It’s a pivotal moment for Venue Lab and hugely significant for London. Greenwich Peninsula is a flagship global development and one of the single largest regeneration projects in Europe."
The project in the heart of Greenwich Peninsula will stand on the riverbank with views of Canary Wharf and have capacity for 3,000 people across 5,394sqm.
In addition to its indoor space, it will also have an adjoining ‘Showground’ – a landscaped environment on the banks of the Thames with a further 13,985sqm and a capacity of 7,000. This means a combined space of 19,379 qm and capacity of 10,000 opening up the potential for events, brand activations and festivals that require an outdoor element.
It has been described as "a sleek, modern blank canvas perfect for hosting anything from concerts, conferences, exhibitions, product launches, parties, award ceremonies and dinners."
Catering will be supplied by the award-winning Moving Venue, caterers for more than 50 of London’s leading venues from Printworks to Somerset House.
Benefiting from excellent transport links – North Greenwich Tube station is less than 300m away – Magazine London is only eight minutes travel time from central London.
