Westfield Corporation

Westfield Corporation is one of the world’s leading shopping centre companies with iconic retail destinations in London, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles among its portfolio of 34 centres. Westfield Corporation is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and was created in June 2014 when Westfield Group separated its Australian and New Zealand business from its international operations. The Australian and New Zealand shopping centres are now owned and managed by Scentre Group.

Last year approximately 400 million customer visits to Westfield Corporation shopping centres generated over $16 billion in retail sales. Westfield centres are highly productive, with strong franchise value and the ability to attract the world’s leading retail brands. They are an essential part of the community’s social and economic fabric.

Westfield’s strategy is to develop and own superior retail destinations in major cities by integrating food, fashion, leisure and entertainment and by using technology to better connect retailers with consumers.

Westfield continually improves its portfolio by developing existing centres, acquiring new centres and exploring opportunities in new markets. Many shopping centres in the portfolio are owned in partnership with the world’s leading property investment institutions. Westfield also works with the world’s leading retail and luxury brands to create a unique shopping and leisure experience.

Westfield manages every aspect of its portfolio – from design, construction and development to leasing, management and marketing – ensuring that its centres constantly meet the highest expectations of today’s retailers and consumers.
