The dedication of WESTFIELD LONDON, in October 2008, spelled trouble for the 32-year-old BRENT CROSS CENTRE. The new Westfield property was less than 5 miles away and (with 1,614,600 lettable square feet) was nearly twice the size of the older shopping precinct.

In September 2011, an even larger Westfield property started trading to the public. WESTFIELD STRATFORD CITY, less than 10 miles distant, encompassed an astounding 1,883,700 lettable square feet.
