Here’s a picture of the East London space back in 2006.
And here’s how it looks today, incorporating Westfield Stratford City, the Athletes’ Village and the Olympic Stadium:
With 300 shops and 50 restaurants, Westfield Stratford City will be the largest urban shopping centre in Europe. It’s due to open on 13 September.
There’ll be a John Lewis, an M&S and a Waitrose, as well as all your other favourite stores: Primark, Next, Mothercare, Swarovski, Paperchase, Uniqlo, Superdry and Reiss to name but a few!
Westfield Stratford City will have an unrivalled transport network; it’ll be one of the best connected shopping destinations in the UK. £17 billion is being invested in public transport in the lead up to the 2012 Olympics.
