Evening Standard: "Croydon's set for a Westfield makeover, come what may" (and a CPO for HAMMERSON?)

"I asked Croydon's chief executive, Jon Rouse, on Wednesday if his council might compulsorily purchase land from the squabbling owners of the Whitgift Centre. Why? Because they are stalling the urban equivalent of a heart transplant by Westfield. The Aussie developer wants to replace the clapped-out centre with a Stratford-sized mall.

"Westfield might even want to build a centre far larger than the Whitgift.

"Hammerson is looking to upgrade its 700,000-square-foot Centrale mall, just to the west. If you compulsory purchase (CPO) both, Westfield could build a mall even bigger than Stratford."
