Westfield announces multiple new signings
Unibail-Rodamco Westfield has announced a raft of new retail, dining and leisure signings across its flagship destinations, which together attracted over 4.2 million visitors in the first month since reopening after lockdown.
Due to launch late this summer at Westfield London, the Situ Live experiential retail destination will aim to bring innovative products to life through immersive store design, live demonstrations, and storytelling. The 8,000 square foot space will feature six curated theatres, including ‘Fitness & Wellbeing’, ‘Connected Home’, ‘Nutrition Kitchen’, ‘Entertainment’, ‘Home & Mobile Working’ and ‘On The Move’.
In addition, Hyundai’s premium brand Genesis (pictured) will debut in the UK this summer with a physical space at Westfield London, while Kurt Geiger’s Shoeaholics brand has recently launched a 20,000 square foot flagship store at the shopping centre.
New food and beverage outlets to open at the West London include Filipino ice cream concept Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream and Bindas Eatery on Westfield Square.
Looking at Westfield Stratford City, Turkish restaurant and cocktail bar Lokma will open a 6,000 square foot offering on The Street this summer. Meanwhile, the centre’s food courts will see the addition of Honi Poke, North Fish Restaurant and plant-based burger joint Neat Burger.
Kate Orwin, leasing director for Westfield UK & Italy, said: “With over four million visitors through our doors since reopening last month, Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City continue to attract the best concepts and stores that our customers want. It’s exciting to see brands adapting in a new era through experiential retail, community, health initiatives and more and we look forward to welcoming over a dozen new brands in the coming months.
“However, after a challenging year for physical retail, we know it will be a tough journey ahead and what we need now, more than ever, is for Government to help get the industry back on its feet again by urgently reforming business rates.”
