Westfield and Hammerson created the Croydon Partnership to redevelop the Whitgift Centre into a new state-of-the-art retail and leisure centre in Croydon. We believe that our over £1 billion redevelopment is vital for the future of the town by transforming Croydon’s retail centre, creating 5,000 new jobs and helping unlock Croydon’s huge potential so that it can once again become the leading retail destination in South London.
In addition to key anchor stores, over 300 shops, restaurants and cafes will bring together a dynamic mix of high street fashion, independent traders, food and lifestyle brands.
The scheme also benefits from improvements to the public transport infrastructure network which includes major bus, rail and taxi interchange. Whilst, the Croydon Partnership aims to address the issue of poor connections between existing retail centres and the surrounding area to provide a cohesive and integrated town centre for the benefit of all local businesses. The development will be built to the highest sustainability and environmental standards.
