London Olympics: Stratford CityOn the back of the London 2012 Games, the largest urban shopping centre in Europe is opening in September 2011 on the doorstep of the Olympic Park. Work on Stratford City started in early 2007 with phase one set to be complete in time for the Olympic Games and the entire project due to be finished by 2020. The new Westfield Shopping Centre at Stratford City claims to be "inspired by East London's creative spirit" and boasts unrivalled transport connectivity following the opening of Stratford International and the improved Stratford Regional Overground, Underground and DLR lines. Like in its older counterpart in White City, the Westfield Stratford City will have as its backbone the triple beacons of John Lewis, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. Spread over a staggering 1.9m square feet, there will also be a 14-screen Vue cinema, a 267-room Premier Inn hotel, another hotel with 350 rooms, office space, almost 5,000 new homes, and 300 stores "from High Street to boutique, established to contemporary". Royal Mail has allocated the postcode E20 to the Olympic Park and Stratford City - the postcode which was previously only used for the fictional suburb of Walford in the BBC soap opera EastEnders.
