Paris-based Unibail-Rodamco will own a portfolio of 104 shopping centres worldwide after striking a deal to acquire Westfield Corporation for $US24.7bn ($A32.76bn). The deal comprises Westfield’s 35 shopping centres in the US and the UK, but it does not include Westfield-brand shopping centres in Australia, which are owned by the separately-listed Scentre Group. Unibail-Rodamco intends to rebadge its existing portfolio of shopping centres with the Westfield brand.
