    Exchange Square receives its first award nomination

    We’ve really appreciated the glowing feedback we’ve received for Exchange Square since it opened earlier this year, from the tenants of Broadgate to local residents we’ve met walking their dogs in their new park.

    It’s great to now be receiving recognition with its first award nomination: Best Public Space at The Pineapples. This awards series is organised by The Developer and Festival of Place, and celebrates thriving public spaces which make a positive environmental and social impact on urban life.
