Cape Town - The 2017 Retail, Design and Development Awards (RDDA) winners were announced at the recent SA Council of Shopping Centres (SACSC) Annual Congress in Cape Town.

The RDDA winners are awarded annually to entrants that display a seamless harmony of design excellence, innovation and environmental consciousness.

This includes instore design, centre redevelopments, expansions of existing shopping centres and development of new centres.

SACSC CEO Amanda Stops said shopping centres and retailers have become more dynamic over recent years.

“South Africa remains world class in terms of the types of centres and retailers that we have designed and produced. Judging the awards have become progressively more difficult as we see even more innovation over the years and this year was no exception,” she said.

Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Pretoria stood out from the rest of the winners and was named the winner of the Spectrum Award, which celebrates retail excellence across all disciplines and sectors.

Robin Lockhart Ross, managing executive of Nedbank CIB Property Finance (sponsors of the awards) believes cutting-edge shopping centre design and economic success are deserving of recognition.
