Westfield and John Lewis announced that John Lewis will open a four-level department store at the UK's number one shopping centre, Westfield London, creating approximately 600 new jobs for London.

The 230,000 sq ft department store is John Lewis's first West London branch and will stock over 350,000 lines including fashion, home and technology. Creating a bold and impressive architectural statement, which will anchor the new Westfield London extension, the shop will include a unique outdoor dining terrace with views over the listed Dimco buildings and BBC television centre.

The planned Westfield London extension will feature 600,000 sq ft of additional retail and 1,500 homes and is expected to create around 6,700 permanent new jobs. The new department store is expected to be a major attraction for customers, adding to the 27 million UK and tourist shoppers who visit Westfield London annually.

Michael Gutman, Westfield's European Managing Director said: 'John Lewis is the most requested store at Westfield London and we are delighted that we will soon be able to deliver on this for our customers. The new store will be another huge attraction to Westfield London and will become an important centrepiece of the massive regeneration taking place in the White City opportunity area with the creation of thousands of new homes and jobs.'

Andy Street, John Lewis Managing Director, said: 'Our business in London has strengthened significantly over recent years. It is therefore right that we now move to open in Westfield London and bring our offer to customers in the west of the city.'

Nicholas Botterill, leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council, said: 'The arrival of John Lewis at Westfield is further proof that White City is becoming unmatched as a centre for shopping and leisure. We warmly welcome the creation of 600 jobs at the department store, which will bring even more visitors to the area and make a lasting contribution to its ongoing regeneration. This is fantastic news for local people, for the local economy and for the whole of west London.'

The new John Lewis department store at Westfield London is expected to open in 2017.
