A new Westfield shopping is being built in Croydon.

£1 billion is being invested in the project, which is being built by international retail developers Westfield and Hammerson plc.

It will involve the redevelopment of Croydon’s Whitgift and Centrale shopping centres.

It's hoped work will start on the 200,000 square feet retail centre in 2015.

5,000 jobs will be created.

Westfield in Shepherds Bush opened in October 2008, and Westfield Stratford City opened in September 2011.
