The £1.8 billion Westfield Stratford City retail project will be the gateway to the London 2012 Olympic Park and is the largest urban shopping centre in Europe. It has 5,000 parking spaces and hosts John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose stores, a 17-screen Vue cinema, and the UK's largest casino operated by Aspers. With 250 shops and 70 restaurants, it will create a new lifestyle destination for East London. Stratford City also includes three hotels and 130,000 square feet of office space.
