North West commercial talent honoured at NWPAs 2017

Property firms from across the North West were out in force last night (19 October) as the NWPAs 2017 took place in Liverpool.

The glittering ceremony, held at Lutyens Crypt in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, saw awards handed out for Best Commercial Scheme and Best Commercial Let.

The black-tie event, sponsored by Countryside, covered commercial and residential property across the North West and included a cocktail reception followed by a three-course meal, magician, quiz and awards presentation hosted by comedian Neil Fitzmaurice.

Regeneration company Urban Splash was successful in the Best Commercial Scheme category for its Stubbs Mill project with the firm also picking up the award for Best New Home (Large Scheme) for ‘House’.

Meanwhile CEG’s (Commercial Estates Group) let to Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) at Exchange Station, the biggest office deal in Liverpool city centre since 2014, was named Best Commercial Let.

This year also saw the introduction of a new Interactive Award, sponsored by BMD Law, which tasked guests with picking their best dressed table. Luxor Estates picked up the inaugural award.

A full list of winners is featured below. Look out for reactions and a picture gallery from the night in the next issue of Move Commercial, out on 8 November.
