"Should we be feeling slightly sorry for Hammerson?
[Yes - we do all the time!]

"Yesterday's 'Develop Croydon' conference was all about Westfield. London Mayor Boris Johnson bounded on stage to tell everyone he was 'delighted' that Westfield had chosen Croydon to build their third London mega mall.

"...  And Hammerson's director of UK retail development Robin Dobson [Dobbo], was barely off stage, when Schroders' Ian Mason was busy telling everyone how Westfield was the best thing to ever happen to Croydon."

Estates Gazette:

"About a third of Croydon's office stock is old and redundant. That's a quite a lot.

"Jon Rouse, the council's well-respected chief executive, reckons that anywhere between 20% and a third of the town's offices need to be razed or refurbished."
