The Olympic Gateway


This year Stratford plays host to the greatest show on earth. Around ten million visitors are set to waltz through the gateway, and they’ll have the amazing shopping experience of Westfield Stratford City to welcome them in.


As the gateway to the Olympic park, Westfield Stratford City is part of one of the largest renovation projects ever undertaken in the UK. Eyes across the globe will be focused on Stratford, and significant infrastructure and cultural improvements have been made as a result. The centre is part of a £1.45 billion development to ready Stratford for the increase in footfall. On completion, Westfield Stratford City was the largest urban shopping centre in Europe, comprising 1.9 million square feet of retail indulgence. The destination connects stores through a series of walkways, with a


128


mixture of 300 brands including Forever 21, H&M, Esprit, Next, Topshop, River Island, Primark, Boots, WH Smith and Monsoon, anchored by British giants John Lewis, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer. The centre is more than just a shopping experience, with a combination of brands, experiences and formats over a three floor curved mall, with Marks and Spencers at one end and John Lewis at the other, with a 24 hour lifestyle street linking the Stratford international and regional stations. The street is bordered on the northern side by a three storey


shopping centre, playing host to independent operators and fresh food specialists in modern boutique-style shops contrasting with two distinct building styles on the south side, housing striking, sleek fashion stores and edgy urban brands. The centre is one of the most energy


efficient retail centres in the UK. It has been specifically designed to achieve excellence in environmental sustainability, which continues in its ongoing management.
