McArthurGlen designer outlet vancouver airport wins commercial real estate award of excellence for retail development

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport is pleased to announce they have won the esteemed Commercial Retail Estate Award of Excellence in Retail Development, just months ahead of their one-year opening anniversary. The NAIOP Vancouver and Business in Vancouver awards program recognises quality and performance, innovation and creativity, teamwork and collaboration, as well as community and environmental awareness.

McArthurGlen Vancouver was a flagship retail development project in British Columbia last year and is the first of its kind outside of Europe. Since opening its doors in July 2015, the Centre has performed exceptionally, breaking footfall and sales records on the opening weekend and throughout the year. The centre set a company record for footfall by recording one million visitors in less than three months. The total footfall for 2015 was an outstanding two million visitors.

“We are overjoyed to see the first McArthurGlen in North America performing so well,” says McArthurGlen Vancouver General Manager Robert Thurlow. “The centre has exceeded our expectations and set a precedent for McArthurGlen outlets around the world. As our development continues and support from the community grows, we look forward to seeing what we can accomplish next.”

The Award of Excellence joins a roster of accolades for McArthurGlen Vancouver, including the prestigious MAPIC award for Best Outlet Centre in 2015 and Best Overseas Shopping Centre of the Year by Travel Weekly China.

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport is a joint venture between The McArthurGlen Group, Europe’s leading owner, developer and manager of designer outlets, and the Vancouver Airport Authority, a community-based, not-for-profit organization that operates Vancouver International Airport.
