City Plaza in Wuppertal shortlisted for prestigious ABB LEAF Awards

City Plaza, the landmark building which forms the focal point of a major urban regeneration in the German city of Wuppertal, has been shortlisted for a prestigious 2019 LEAF Award in the 'Best Façade Design and Engineering Project' category.

The awards ceremony will take place on 24 October at the Berlin Marriott Hotel, part of an international forum bringing together leading figures from the property development and design industries across the world.

A five-storey flagship store for Primark, City Plaza is the centrepiece of a large urban redevelopment project which links Wuppertal’s railway station to the town centre.

The development marks the rail gateway to Wuppertal’s city centre, forming part of an assembly of impressive historical buildings which define the remodelled square in front of the railway station.

City Plaza’s innovative curved façade is clad with brass panels which alternate with the glass of the curtain wall, lifting the area's look and feel alongside major improvements to the surrounding public realm.

Chapman Taylor’s Düsseldorf studio, together with the investor, Signature Capital, won a prestigious German Polis Award for City Plaza in the regenerated town centres category in 2016.

Congratulations to Signature Capital and to everyone involved in making the City Plaza regeneration vision a successful reality.
