Westfield Stratford City has performed “exceptionally well” since opening in September, according to the Australian developer.
In its full year figures statement, Westfield revealed that in the 14 weeks to December 31, Stratford, positioned adjacent to the London 2012 Olympic Stadium, attracted 13.6 million shopping visits.
Last year’s unveiling of the largest urban shopping centre in Europe marked one of the few developments to be opened in recent years. No major centres will open this year.
It said its Westfield London shopping centre, opened in 2008 in west London’s White City area, experienced a 10.8% sales lift to £960m last year.
Westfield said its UK portfolio of centres at December 31 was 99% leased.
The shopping centre owner said net profit surged 37.6% to AUS$1.53bn in the year to December 31.
