Two other Liverpool projects – Waterloo Warehouse (Heritage) and Tobacco Warehouse Phase 1 (Refurbishment – Revitalisation) were shortlisted for the awards.
The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, property, construction and infrastructure. They recognise outstanding achievement, teamwork and companies.
Judging panel chair Peter Gilliland said: “These winning projects are a true testament to the hard work of property professionals in the North West.
“The pandemic has led to the industry facing much uncertainty and challenging conditions, but we were delighted, and very proud, to see such innovative building projects appearing across our cities and towns.
“The teams behind them have worked tirelessly and with incredible vision to create projects which provide tremendous benefit across a diverse range of areas. Through collaborating with other professionals, local surveyors have shown that they have the talent to deliver exemplary and, in many cases, world-class built projects.”
