ICONSIAM selected Best Designed Development in the world by International Council of Shopping Centers
Secures place among the world’s most iconic projects as one of few ever to receive top development design awards from three of world’s most respected international retail and property development associations
The International Council of Shopping Centers, the world’s leading association of shopping centers with more than 70,000 members across 100 countries, recently announced its selection by a jury of industry professionals of Thailand’s ICONSIAM as global winner of its VIVA best-of-the-best awards for Best Design and Development 2020 for “ingenuity, innovation and forward-thinking vision”.
ICONSIAM is a $1.7 billion riverside landmark destination in Bangkok, with 750,000 square metres of floor area that combines retail spaces with cultural offerings, entertainment, dozens of restaurants, super-luxury residences, as well as public areas for community activities, including Bangkok’s largest riverside public space. It is the largest private sector property development project ever to open in Thailand.
ICONSIAM was chosen from among a field of over 100 entries from around the world vying for the most coveted award for professional excellence in the retail and real estate industry.
Called the ‘VIVA Best-of-the-Best Awards’, the annual award programme is conducted by the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and recognises the most outstanding new shopping centre developments in the world.
This year, due to worldwide Covid-19 restrictions, the programme was conducted without the annual gala dinner ceremony in Las Vegas, USA, that is a highlight on the international calendar of events for shopping centre owners and operators.
The prize secures ICONSIAM a place among the world’s most iconic projects by making it one of only a handful of projects in the world ever to be presented with the top development design award from three of the most respected international retail and property development associations. ICONSIAM was also selected by the World Retail Awards as Winner of its global ‘Best Store Design’ prize as well as being selected Winner for ‘Best Shopping Center’ at the annual MAPIC Awards for the retail and development industry.
