CAP3000 namend 'World's Best Shopping Centre 2022'
MIPIM jury honours shopping centre extension including sea view on the Côte d'Azur
The jury of this year's MIPIM Awards has recognized Altarea Commerce's CAP3000 as the "Best Shopping Centre" in the world thanks to an extension overlooking the sea completed in 2021.
With the extension, CAP3000 is the first shopping centre in the world with BiodiverCity certification and a BREEAM "Excellent" rating. With 4,000 employees, the shopping centre is also the fourth largest employer in the Maritime Alps.
"We're very proud to receive this international award. Having CAP3000 named the best shopping centre in the world is a big vote of confidence for us and welcome recognition for all our hard–working teams. It's especially nice to be receiving an international award here in Cannes, just minutes away from CAP3000", said Ludovic Castillo, Chairman of Altarea Commerce's management board
"It's a great day for us. This award recognizes a feat of architecture that has opened the shopping centre onto the Mediterranean and revolutionized our customer experience. It also recognizes how visionary CAP3000 has been ever, since it was built in 1969. The mall is a trendsetter in the retail world and is always one step ahead of consumer needs and expectations. That retail savvy adds to the allure of the Côte d'Azur and of France as a whole", said Felipe Goncalves, Managing Director of CAP3000.
