"It also contains 1.1 million sqft of office space, the UK’s largest casino, three hotels, over 50 restaurants, 5,000 parking spaces, its own bus station and a 17-screen 3D cinema capable of screening films on request. Westfield has also forensically identified a catchment area of 4.1 million residents stretching as far as Hertfordshire and Sussex.

"The 100-acre wider Stratford City masterplan also envisages an additional 1 million sqft of retail, 5 million sqft of offices and 16,000 homes. So Westfield Stratford City is not just a shopping centre; it is city-engineering on a monumental scale, and the starting pistol for the creation of a brand new London neighbourhood."
