Westfield Stratford City welcomed 50 million visitors in past year

Figures released by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield have revealed that the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre has attracted 50 million visitors in the last year.  

Since its opening in 2011, the east London destination has now received more than 323 million visitors and generated retail sales of more than £7.4 billion.
 
Michel Dessolain, chief operating officer Europe for Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said: “We are very proud to reach another UK first at Westfield Stratford City with footfall topping 50 million in twelve months. It is fitting that a destination at the heart of the Olympic legacy story continues to break records. Expectations for future growth are very strong with an estimated £22 billion to be invested by 2027 bringing more retail, homes and offices, as well as cultural and learning institutions to the area.”

The release of the figures follows Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield’s publication of a report on the socio-economic impact of its centres in London over the past decade. Called ‘10 Years in the Making’, the report was written to coincide with this year’s 10th anniversary of the Westfield London shopping centre’s opening on the other side of the city.

The report says that one in five Westfield Stratford City employees live in the London Borough of Newham and that 13% of all jobs are supported by the centre. Other contributions cover £12 million to fund transport and infrastructure improvements such as the DLR extension to Stratford International, better bus services and improved pedestrian and cycle routes.
