Victoria Gate crowned 'Best Shopping Centre' in the world

London -Victoria Gate truly must be a "unique development" as it was crowned the Best Shopping Centre in world at the 2017 MIPIM Awards in Cannes, France.

Owned by property tycoon Hammerson, the 165 million pound scheme was the only major retail scheme to launch in the UK in 2016. Located in Leeds, the high-end shopping centre officially opened its doors to the public last October. Adjacent to the luxury Victoria Quarter arcade, the shopping centre was designed to resemble a modern version of a Victorian arcade.

The Victoria Gate forms part of the new 53,400 square meter Victoria Leeds shopping destination, now the largest premium retail and leisure venue in northern England. The shopping center is anchored by a flagship John Lewis store, the first in Leeds, alongside of 30 retail brands and restaurants. The new centre retail line-up includes global brands such as Anthropologie, Gant, Hackett, Tommy Hilfiger and Cos.
