Chapman Taylor wins Supreme Gold Award the second year in a row
Four Chapman Taylor schemes picked up five awards at retail property organisation BCSC’s Gold Awards 2008. Cabot Circus received the highest accolade of the night, the Supreme Gold Award. This is the second year in a row that a Chapman Taylor scheme has won Supreme Gold - Princesshay in Exeter won last year.
“Cabot Circus is a truly excellent example of a mixed use scheme”, said Neil Varnham, Chairman of the BCSC Gold Awards Jury and Head of Distribution & Business Development at Henderson Global Investors.
He added: “The attention to detail throughout the scheme is exemplary and is seen in the design detailing, the signature dome roof, the artwork, the shop fronts and the customer facilities.”
The Trafford Centre in Manchester was awarded BCSC’s Established Centre Gold.
St Pancras International won the In-Town Retail scheme (300,000 sq ft or less) category. The Jury praised the design for bringing a timeless quality to the grade 1 listed building.
Cabot Circus and Highcross, were two of the winners in the In-Town Retail Scheme (more than 300,000 sq ft) category.
