Trinity Leeds wins Design and Development Award at 2015 VIVA Best-of-the-Best Awards

Press release

Trinity Leeds has been awarded the 2015 Best-of-the-Best VIVA (Vision, Innovation, Value, Achievement) Award for Design and Development, presented on Sunday, 17 May 2015 at ICSC’s annual RECon Conference in Las Vegas. The Land Securities shopping centre, which opened in March 2013, was recognised for its outstanding architecture, as it continues to set the benchmark for market-leading, modern centres, both in the UK and abroad.

The shopping centre’s world-class retail and leisure offer, set in a stunning shopping environment, has acted as a major catalyst for the resurgence of the Leeds retail market over the last two years, bringing 65 news brands to the city (including 22 international retailers), and contributing towards Leeds’ growing status as one of the top three retail venues in the UK1.

The VIVA Awards, a branch of ICSC awards, are presented to globally notable shopping centres revered for Design and Development, Sustainability, Marketing, and Community Service. The awards’ elite shortlist is solely comprised of ICSC’s Global Awards’ gold winners from the previous year. Trinity Leeds was automatically submitted for the 2015 VIVA Awards after winning the ICSC’s Best New Development 2014 in the Large Retail Projects over 45,001 sq m category.

Lester Hampson, Head of Retail Development for Land Securities, commented: “Winning the VIVA Best-of-the-Best Award validates the commitment Land Securities has to providing truly standout shopping experiences. Two years on, Trinity Leeds upholds its reputation as an industry-leading shopping centre. Pioneering digital technology, a bespoke leisure offer, and a truly stunning architectural design all complement Trinity Leeds’ unrivalled retail mix that has contributed to the centre’s continuing success.”
