The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) has announced the 2012 European Shopping Center Awards finalists.
A total of 16 centers made it to the short list of finalists, representing 11 countries across Europe, including Andorra.
Four finalists are located in Germany and three in Turkey. Other countries represented are: Andorra, Netherlands, Portugal, Belgium, Austria, Czech Republic, France, Sweden and Norway For the first time in over 10 years, no UK shopping center has made it into the finalists.
Every year, ICSC Europe presents awards to the best new and refurbished or extended retail developments in Europe. Acknowledged to be the most prestigious awards within the Industry, the 2012 Awards will be presented at the 37th ICSC Europe Conference in Berlin next April. The ICSC Awards give developers, architects and shopping center management the opportunity to showcase their work to both a European and a global audience.
The Awards Jury consists of senior international figures within the shopping center industry and any retail or entertainment project opened or newly refurbished or extended between July 1, 2009, and June 30, 2011, was eligible to apply for an award.
All European Award winners will be automatically submitted to the 2013 ICSC VIVA Best-of-the Best Awards Program to be announced in May 2013.
