UK landscapers in awards finals

Developments in Bristol and Solihull are among 14 finalists in the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) Awards for Excellence.

The UK finalists in the competition, which includes entries from across Europe, Africa and the Middle East, are Cabot Circus in Bristol and Dickens Heath in Solihull.

Dickens Heath, developed by Parkridge Holdings, is a 4.5ha mixed-use development designed to be a living village rather than a traditional housing estate. It features residential, commercial and community facilities as well as a nature reserve and village green.

Cabot Circus, a joint venture between Hammerson and Land Securities, is a retail-led mixed-use project with 140 new shops across a 16ha site, integrated into Bristol's city streets.

The competition is part of the ULI's Awards for Excellence programme, established in 1979. Throughout the scheme's history, projects including office, residential, recreational, urban/mixed-use, industrial/office park, commercial/retail, new community and public projects have been recognised.

The 2010 finalists were selected from 43 entries from 17 countries. The winners will be announced on 28 June at the ULI Europe's Trends Conference.
