Liverpool One wins UK’s only ICSC awards

Grosvenor's £1bn retail development Liverpool One was awarded two prestigious awards by the International Council for Shopping Centres at its European Conference in Prague on Wednesday.

Liverpool One was the only development in the UK to be recognised at the awards. Liverpool One was named best New Development Extra Large, over 80,000 sq m, beating two rival projects both based in Portugal.

It was also the sole recipient of the prestigious ICSC ReStore award recognising retail regeneration.

Judges praised the developer and Liverpool City Council for a successful partnership that delivered a sustainable result for the local and regional community.

A statement from the judging panel said: "Liverpool One is more than a shopping centre – it is a groundbreaking and dynamic mixed-use project that has transformed 17-hectares of Liverpool's city centre into a newborn destination."

Chris Bliss, Liverpool One estate director, said: "We very proud to be acknowledged by such a prestigious international group as the ICSC. Liverpool One has now won 49 awards, celebrating every aspect of the Liverpool One scheme from planning and design to regeneration and management. The continued recognition on the international stage is testament to the work of Grosvenor, BDP and the Liverpool One team. The ultimate accolade however is the public's reaction to what has been achieved, and people continue to visit Liverpool One in increasing numbers."

Liverpool-born Terry Davenport, head of BDP's Northern Retail division and the mastermind behind Liverpool One's design, said of the latest clutch of awards: "In terms of retail design the ICSC awards are the most prestigious in the world and I'm thrilled that the achievement of Liverpool One has now been officially recognised on an international scale. Liverpool One has now notched up nearly 50 industry honours since opening in 2008."
