With exciting decoration, varieties of fashion retailers around the world and exotic cuisines, Westfield London Shopping Centre owns the fame of being the fifth biggest commercial centre in the United Kingdom. Despite its architectural failure, the place is considerably the one of the best areas in London as a meeting hub and, as an eating and shopping area. Its address is Centre Management Suite, Unit 4006, Ariel Way, London W12 7GF.
On October 30, 2008, Westfield started its promising journey with a five-storied building providing a retailing area of 150,000m² (1,614,600 ft²). This dynamic and innovative place has provided 80% shops specialized in fashion. Remarkably, traders from at least 15 countries are continuously delivering their best products and services. Apple, Bershka, Boots, Bose, Jaeger, Kurt Geiger, and other more than 265 fashion-focused and premium retailers have housed in this luxurious environment. It has five anchor tenants. The newly developed area, namely the Village, is a high-end retailing area. The area includes brands Burberry, De Beers, Dior, Gucci, Miu Miu, Mulberry, Myla, and Versace.
Delicious food items from around the world are another iconic feature of this shopping mall. A cluster of 17 exotic restaurants spread across the Westfield. At least 25 styles from different nationalities have made this hub appealing to the food enthusiasts. Among them, six are new in United Kingdom and five are the newest brands. Around 50 concepts of food have been the winner of around 73 different awards.
Westfield London has not stopped just showing their excellent remark on shopping and food. Rather their entertaining arrangement for the shopping-tired visitors is quite promising. The multiplex cinema Vue provides with a capacity of around 3,000 seats. It is a 14-screen movie hall including five 3D screens. Moreover, a gym a spa and a library have added new tastes to the people visiting the place.
The infrastructure of transport system in UK has love-bombed this area. In every five minutes, the adjacent four rail stations provide a tube coming towards and going away from this area. On average, one bus in every minute reaches two highly busy bus stations. However, this is not the complete picture of the transport for this shopping mall. A car parking providing 4,500 spaces allows a huge number of visitors to come from far of the city. Any consumer for his quick shopping can also come here by his cycle using the new cycle routes. Reportedly, the space for cycle is unsatisfactorily inadequate. In addition to that, a secure pedestrian route allows the huge number of visitors to come here walking.
Such lovely place, however, cannot satisfy the thirst of the architects. This failure has brought an unfortunate moment for this building. The Carbuncle cup is awarded in every year to the ugliest buildings in the United Kingdom. In 2009, the unfortunate winner was this edifice. Some tree-looking columns supported its unsteady roof over an enormous central lobby. One of the mentionable designs is the living wall situated as Southern Terrace. It is 170 metres long and four mitres tall. It stands between the commercial centre and local homes providing a heartening, fascinating and vibrant location for outdoor cafés and restaurants.
Although it is true that, this lovely place is not satisfactory at the scale of architecture, exciting experience of million people every year shows that its attractiveness lies in the comfortable environment, availability of top-class products and arraignments of fun elements.
