SACSC calls for entries for 2019 Retail Design and Development Awards

The South African Council of Shopping Centres’ (SACSC) Retail Design and Development Awards 2019 is now open for entries and the SACSC has called on shopping centre developers, owners and retailers to enter.

Entries for the awards, sponsored by Nedbank CIB Property Finance, opened on 3 May and closes on 06 June 2019. Award winners will be announced at the SACSC’s 23rd Annual Congress, the largest retail property event on the continent that’s set to take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 16-18 October 2019.

The aim of the SACSC’s Retail Design and Development Awards (RDDAs) is to identify and award exceptional shopping centre developments and retail store design within the South African property industry.

Award categories include best new large, medium and small shopping centre developments; best renovation or expansion for large, medium and small centres; best retail design for a store or restaurant; and, best new international development. All aspects of the shopping centre and store/restaurant design and development will be taken into account, including the retail mix; development costs and returns; design and innovation; the centre’s appropriateness to the market; materials/techniques used in the construction and design; sustainability; and, green innovation and effectiveness.

“As the market-leading financier of retail, commercial, industrial and residential developments in the country, Nedbank CIB is proud to again be the principal sponsor of this year’s awards,” says Gary Garrett, Managing Executive: Property Finance at Nedbank CIB. “We believe that cutting-edge shopping centre design and economic success are deserving of recognition.”

As part of the Retail Design and Development Awards, an overall winner is chosen from the category winners for the coveted Spectrum Award. Last year the overall Spectrum Award winner was the Western Cape’s Whale Coast Mall, developed by Dorpstraat DMS (Pty) Ltd and Hosken Consolidated Investments (Pty) Ltd. Whale Coast Mall was designed by Bentel Associates International/JLD.
