The region’s commercial and business community was out in force last night (20 October) as the NWPAs 2016 took place in Liverpool.
The ceremony, held at Lutyens Crypt in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, saw gongs handed a variety of categories including Best Commercial Scheme, Best Commercial Let and Commercial Property of the Year.
More than 250 guests were in attendance for the black tie event which included a cocktail reception followed by a three-course meal and awards presentation hosted by comedian Neil Fitzmaurice.
Muse Developments took home the Best Commercial Scheme award for its City Place development in Chester, the focal point of the city’s new Central Business Quarter.
Best Commercial Let went to Worthington Owen and Keppie Massie for the deal which relocated Brookes Belle Group from the Martins Building on Water Street to Exchange Flags.
The prestigious Commercial Property Agent of the Year prize was awarded to Hitchcock Wright & Partners
After the presentation, the celebrations continued with live entertainment coming from Phunk Phenomena.
