BCSC Gold Awards Entries 2008 – In Town Retail Scheme (more than 300,00sqft)
Cabot Circus Bristol – Bristol Alliance (a joint venture between Land Securities Group plc and Hammerson plc)
At the Awards ceremony held in the Grosvenor Hotel, Cabot Circus was announced as the overall winner of the Gold Awards for retail projects in 2008.
Cabot Circus was described as a national exemplar and won against unusually stiff competition including the Highcross development in Leicester and Victoria square in Belfast (which both won special runner up acknowledgements).
The judges praised the manner in which the area development had been planned with residential units, offices, retail space and hotel fully integrated into the existing street plan.
