Greater Manchester Building of the Year Award

Four of Greater Manchester’s latest landmarks are in the running to win a top local property prize.

The Armani Building at Spinningfields, the New Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Ashton Market and the Bolton Market Shopping Centre have all been shortlisted for the Greater Manchester Building of the Year Award 2009 awarded by Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce.

The projects on the shortlist are from across Greater Manchester and fought off stiff competition from a record number of nominations.

The Award is given by the Chamber to recognise some of the key construction projects in Greater Manchester that have been completed over the past year. Last year saw Piccadilly Place scoop the top prize and previous winners have included John Rylands Library, the Beetham Tower and the Radisson Hotel.

Commenting on this year’s shortlist, Steve Burne, Chairman of the Chamber’s Building and Development Section, said: “This year’s shortlisted buildings are a great tribute to the standard of the projects we are continuing to see across Greater Manchester, despite the recent difficult climate. As we look towards more positive times, this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate our architectural and construction achievements, which are crucial in the redevelopment of Greater Manchester and its growth as a major business centre.”

The winner will be announced at the Section’s Annual Dinner at the Hilton Manchester on 15 October and the award will be presented by Sir Howard Bernstein. Click here for more details about the event and to book your place.
