Just four months after its grand opening, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver on Sea Island has won the prestigious Best Outlet Centre award at the 2015 MAPIC awards, the international retail property market awards which take place annually in Cannes in the South of France.
The first property to be developed in North America by Europe-based McArthurGlen, the Vancouver centre opened its doors on July 9.
In its first three months of operation, the outlet welcomed its one millionth visitor, exceeding the company’s footfall projections by 66 per cent. “We brought the very first McArthurGlen centre to Canada and are thrilled with its performance over the past five months,” said McArthurGlen Vancouver General Manager Robert Thurlow. “The reception from both the local community and tourists alike has been exceptional. We look forward to its continued success and second phase development commencing in January 2016.”
