Best Retail & Leisure development - MAPIC Awards 2013
With over 200,000 sqm of retail and leisure, Puerto Venecia is one of the largest development projects in Spain but, with cafes and restaurants lining a new canal and an outdoor activity area set around a large artificial lake, it’s also one of the most original.

The developer intends to balance commercial success with environmental sustainability through a carefully coordinated programme of measures covering construction techniques, the use of alternative energy supplies, the planting of 12,000 trees and an energy conscious management strategy. LDA have been appointed to take an overview of all design related elements, including shopfronts, food and drink outlets.
