Westfield London to open

by Caroline Wilkinson | 02 Sep 2008

Westfield London, a £1.6bn mixed-use development is due to open this October as part of the regeneration of the White City Opportunity Area.

The scheme, designed by US architect Michael Gabellini on behalf of Australian-based developers Westfield Group, will feature a 14-screen cinema run by National Amusements and a gym with health spa.

The 200,000sq ft, three-floor development will also boast two levels of retail stores and The Atrium, an interior events space as well as 40 restaurants and bars

One of the restaurants, called Ito, will be launched by Tom Etridge. Etridge previously owned gastropub business group Frandek, before selling it to Compass Group's Restaurant Associates in 2006.

The 60-seat 'healthy fast-food' restaurant will be designed by Martin Brudnizki and will include a 12-seat bar with conveyor belt.

Westfield Group managing director, Steven Lowy said: “Westfield London will draw on our global and local experience of creating unique retail and lifestyle offerings. It will provide a customer lifestyle experience, combining entertainment, dining, and leisure opportunities with guest hospitality: valet parking, porters, personal shopping and more.”
