John Lewis is to open a 230,000 sq ft department store in Westfield London, creating 600 new jobs.
The store, its first in West London, will stock 350,000 lines including fashion, homewares and technology and will anchor Westfield London’s extension.
The shop will include an outdoor dining terrace with views over BBC Television Centre.
John Lewis said the store will create a “bold and impressive architectural statement”.
The planned Westfield London extension will add 600,000 sq ft of retail space and 1,500 homes.
Westfield European managing director Michael Gutman said: “John Lewis is the most requested store at Westfield London and we are delighted that we will soon be able to deliver on this for our customers.
“The new store will be another huge attraction to Westfield London and will become an important centrepiece of the massive regeneration taking place in the White City opportunity area with the creation of thousands of new homes and jobs.”
John Lewis managing director Andy Street said: “Our business in London has strengthened significantly over recent years. It is therefore right that we now move to open in Westfield London and bring our offer to customers in the west of the city.”
The store is expected to open in 2017.
