The Lexicon picked up two awards at the 2017 Revo Gold Awards held earlier this week. It scooped top prize in the Re: new category for projects that have positively impacted their surrounding environment and was also voted ‘Best of the Best’ across all categories, decided by a live poll of the thousand or so guests that attended the Revo Annual Dinner.The prestigious industry awards are staged by Revo, the organisation that supports businesses in the retail property and placemaking sector.

Simon Russian, development manager for Legal & General on behalf of Bracknell Regeneration Partnership, says: “We were delighted to receive this accolade from the retail industry. Visitor numbers and feedback have also been extremely positive over the first few months. Bracknell now has a town centre to be very proud of.”

The Lexicon is now ranked as the 33rd best shopping destination in the UK, according to authoritative industry commentator Trevor Wood Associates. This compares with 255th position in 2017, further underlying the tremendous progress that has been made.

Cllr Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration, says: “We’re so pleased that The Lexicon has been recognised as a fantastic place to visit by industry experts as well as our residents. It really is the social and economic heart that the borough has been waiting many, many years for. We couldn’t be more proud.”
