MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA-Westfield Group and partner LaSalle’s Asia Property Fund have recently opened the newly renovated Westfield Doncaster mall here, which was given a A$600 million ($415.9 million) facelift. The work more than doubled the size of the asset to just less than 1.3 million sf.

The center now has 420 stores. Anchor tenants include Coles and Safeway supermarkets, as well as Target and Big W discount department stores, and David Jones and Myer department stores.

Westfield is marketing the center as one of its upscale international destination assets, which also include Bondi Junction in Sydney, Century City in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Centre and Westfield London, which opens in two weeks.

Westfield has started two new projects this year that will total a combined A$4 billion in development costs. Starford City, in East London, will open the year before the 2012 Olympics and include the Olympic Village for the event, as well as 5,400 residential units, 1.3 million sf of hotels and just more than five million sf of offices. Sydney (Australia) City will have 409,032 sf of multi-level retail and will include a 27-story office tower when it is completed in 2010. Westfield owns 119 shopping centers in Australia, the US, New Zealand and the UK.
