Bluewater is named top UK shopping centre
Monday 19 December 2011
Westfield has been beaten by Bluewater to the top spot in an industry league table of UK shopping centres. Westfield's latest offering – the 1.9m sq ft Stratford City shopping centre that opened in September – has been placed third in the hierarchy while Gateshead's Metro Centre came second. Westfield London, in Shepherd's Bush, is now fourth.
The index, put together by retail property expert Trevor Wood Associates, looks at the top 500 centres in the UK scoring them on attractiveness to shoppers, retailers and investors analysing everything from tenant turnover to number of shop vacancies.
Of the top 10 schemes, six are out of town shopping centres – highlighting the extent shoppers are lured away from traditional high streets.
