Westfield Century City Expands Its Food Court Space Considerably

Because so many of you are tracking the progress of the developing Westfield Century City Shopping Center, I’m giving you the details as I encounter them.  The latest?  The food court has expanded its floor space by a great deal.  I know it’s hard to tell from these photos, but a new glass wall has been built creating increased floor space.  If you look at the first photo, what you’re looking at is the erstwhile news stand that stood in the outdoor area across from the former Coral Tree Express ( on the far right of the photo).  You can see that the area is now enclosed.  The second photo is standing where the old doors used to be and looking toward Meizhou Dongpo, that is now just outside the new entrance.  What’s going to occupy all this extra space?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
