Westfield Sydney, formerly Westfield Centrepoint, is an upscale shopping centre operated by Scentre Group[3] and located beneath the Sydney Tower in the Sydney central business district, Australia. It is adjacent to the Westfield Sydney Central Plaza.

History[edit]

The site of the A$860 million Westfield Sydney redevelopment was once occupied by the Westfield Centrepoint Shopping Centre and the smaller Skygarden and Imperial Arcades. The former Westfield Centrepoint housed over 140 stores and provided skybridge connections to two of Australia's major department stores, Myer and David Jones. There was also a connection to Imperial Arcade which featured the Sydney central business district's Angus & Robertson bookstore.

2010–2014: redevelopment[edit]

The three shopping centres are currently undergoing a complete refurbishment.[citation needed]

Stage 3 opened in October 2010 with approximately 130 specialty stores.[citation needed] The new centre fronts three streets, including the Pitt Street Mall, one of the world's most expensive shopping streets by rent;[4] Castlereagh Street, arguably Australia's most exclusive luxury shopping street; and Market Street.
