The joint venture between Westfield and Hammerson has secured a co-located John Lewis department store and Waitrose supermarket as the anchor tenant for their £1.4bn redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre.
The 165,000 sq ft, four-level John Lewis shop, which will incorporate a Waitrose on the ground floor, represents a significant investment by the John Lewis Partnership in Croydon town centre.
