European Shopping Center Award for Westfield Stratford City
11 June 2013
Since 1975, the International Council of Shopping Centers has been presenting awards for the most eye-catching new and renovated shopping centres in Europe. The awards are viewed as the most prestigious available in terms of European retail real estate.
In 2013, a new category – Existing Centers – was added to the ICSC European Shopping Center Awards. This award is presented to projects that have the capacity to fully meet the wishes of investors and users, on the basis of economic impact and aesthetic appearance. Influence on the environment also plays an important role.
This year, the Westfield Stratford City was proud to receive the prestigious award in the category ‘new building, extra large’. On the top floors of this shopping centre, Zoontjens installed 15,000 m2 of rooftop parking with the Pardak® system.
