Despite the deepening high street crisis, the developer is planning a second major development near its existing White City shopping complex.
The £1bn regeneration plan for the White City Opportunity Area includes 1,700 homes and around 500,000 sq ft of retail.
This time the scheme will be spread over a wider area and is aimed at connecting the White City development with Shepherds Bush using new pedestrian walkways, opening up railway arches to White City Green, a new green space in the area.
Westfield director of development and asset management Duncan Bower said: “This project will form a pivotal link between White City and Shepherd’s Bush while creating over 2,500 jobs for local people.
“By bridging over the road network, the proposals will help to transform the area into a pedestrianised quarter from where people will have clear and attractive walking routes both east/west to the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea and north/south with the wider Opportunity Area.”
