The new Westfield Stratford City Mall, bordered on its north side by the new Stratford International Station, dominates the Olympics site, dwarfing the Aquatics Centre and Olympics Stadium to the south
Westfield Stratford City Mall, Europe's largest urban shopping mall, opened Sept. 2011 in the heart of East London.
The mega-mall will also double as the London Subway gateway to the Olympics.
Frank Lowy was Larry Silverstein's partner in the World Trade Center on Sept 11. 2001.
Over two-thirds of all those attending the Olympics stadium are expected to transit through Westfield's new "Stratford City Center."
Lowy, a dual Australian and Israeli citizen, is co-founder of the Westfield Group, operator of over 100 shopping centers in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and UK. They also own Marriott Hotels.
