'Pop-up Theatre' for Wembley's Fountain Studios?

Fountain Studios
The Stage LINK reports that Quintain are applying to Brent Council for change of use for Fountain Studios, former venue for the X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.  The studios have been vacant for some time since Quintain's acquisition, although the retail park next door, which they also acquired, is still in operation.

Quintain want to use the studios as a pop-up theatre for up to 7 years so it looks as if development of the site will be delayed. There is still uncertainty over the fate of the College of North West London building which is situated next to the retail park on Olympic Way.

The Stage reports that Quintain want to erect external seating at ground level and are in talks with a high-profile producer with  'pop-up venue' experience.
