Sales at the Westfield London shopping centre in White City reached £870m last year, its owner revealed.

Turnover was up 24.7% in total and 18.8% on a comparable basis in 2010, the centre’s second year of operating, property giant Westfield reported.

Westfield managing director Steven Lowy said: “We are extremely pleased with the performance of Westfield London and its strong growth since opening just over two years ago.

“Demand for space continues to be strong and we are now planning Westfield London’s next phase of development and expansion.”
