Hammerson and Westfield: Shopping Centre Wars - Now it turns ugly

Link to Croydon Today

"A CINEMA complex remains a vital ingredient in retail giant Westfield's £1billion investment plans for Croydon's Whitgift Centre, its development director John Burton confirmed this week.

His confidence that cinemas in a Croydon Westfield will succeed comes despite the fact that Hammerson, its rivals for Whitgift development, received planning permission for a £50m regeneration of its Centrale shopping centre in North End [including a cinema] last week."

Neil Crawford, from Hammerson, told the meeting:
"The development will help reverse the alarming decline in Croydon over the last ten years, and will be a catalyst to regenerate and revitalise the town centre."
[Regarding existing north London town centres,
Hammerson will have to use the opposite argument at Brent Cross!]
