The Pineapples Quite simply, we are looking for the best places in the UK

What is a place? We define a place as a mixed-use development or a cluster of multiple developments that create a neighbourhood, large or small. The place can be wholly new or a redevelopment. It may be led by a single developer or a variety of stakeholders operating side-by-side.

 

The categories There are four categories to enter: Completed Place recognises completed developments, Places-in-Progress for works-in-progress, Future Place for not-yet-built or theoretical projects and Contribution to Place for interventions, such as individual buildings or meanwhile projects, that contribute to a place.

 

Criteria The judges will seek to recognise a positive contribution to urban life. They will assess the user experience of the place, and consider whether the development team has created a place where people thrive. Multiple Pineapples can be awarded within each category at the judges’ discretion
