Here are a couple of stories out today that I have put on EGi News that show progress continuing apace at the Olympics developments - a significant investment in Westfield's Olympics hotels and a new MD for John Lewis Stratford:
Westfield has sold two hotels at the 1.9m sq ft Stratford City shopping centre at east London's Olympics site to ES Properties (Stratford) Limited, a joint venture between Cycas Capital Hotel Partners and Patron Capital.
I revealed in October that Australian shopping centre giant Westfield had teamed up with InterContinental Hotels Group to open two hotels across an 11-storey, 186,000 sq ft complex.
The Patron jv is understood to have paid around £50m.
The HKR Architects-designed property will feature a 188-bed Holiday Inn hotel and a 162-bed Staybridge Suites hotel featuring serviced apartments.
