Sir Albert Bore was the big winner the Estates Gazette/MIPIM UK Awards, picking up two of the most prestigious prizes for his work leading Birmingham City Council.
Bore, who will stand down in December, was named City Leader of the Year at the ceremony, while Birmingham itself won the coveted City of the Year Award. http://www.egi.co.uk/news/bore-and-birmingham-win-big/
The awards, presented by Gabby Logan, celebrate organisations and individuals from the private and public sectors who are making a difference to the urban fabric of the UK.
Bore has led Birmingham through a transformational year. In January it was named the most investable UK city in the influential ULI/PwC Emerging Trends in Real Estate report. Last month, the new Grand Central shopping centre, complete with a flagship John Lewis store, opened above New Street station, while occupiers, including HSBC, have moved large chunks of their operation to the city.
A judging panel comprising almost 50 senior figures selected the winners; the Estates Gazette editorial team cast votes for candidates.
