NEW YORK, September 24, 2014 – The International Council of Shopping Centers, (ICSC) in keeping with its long-standing tradition of recognizing and honoring the shopping centre industry’s most cutting-edge, innovative solutions and creative responses to market trends, as well as outstanding examples of retail store design, announced its award recipients for the 2014 Canadian Shopping Centre Global Awards programs. As part of this exclusive shopping centre awards competition, ICSC is pleased to announce Spareparts – St. Vital, Winnipeg, Manitoba, has been awarded a 2014 Maple Leaf Silver Award in this annual awards competition. [Editor’s note: For complete details on all the winners, visit ICSC’s global awards web gallery]. 

The strategy for St. Vital was to create brand continuity while creating a fresh and unique interpretation of the original flagship design concept but reduce the complexity and cost of the supply and installation. A focus on a clean classic pallet, texture and form were the predominate goals. Lighting was an important element in the store design. The use of vertical space was maximized in order to achieve optimal merchandise display while staying true to the visually clean and minimal aesthetic.

ICSC announced the winners of the 2014 ICSC Canadian Shopping Centre Awards during an awards ceremony at ICSC’s Canadian Convention in Toronto, Ontario.

Founded in 1957, ICSC is the premier global trade association of the shopping centre industry. Its more than 67,000 members in over 100 countries include shopping centre owners, developers, managers, marketing specialists, investors, retailers and brokers, as well as academics and public officials.
