City Park West shortlisted for the 2023 RIBA East Awards


Fourteen projects have been shortlisted for the 2023 RIBA East Awards, including City Park West.

City Park West is a new residential quarter in Chelmsford comprising more than 600 homes alongside cafés, restaurants, landscaped public realm, sculpture, workplaces and community facilities. The new townscape, built over two phases, connects parkland to the south with the civic quarter and the historic market town centre to the east. Located by the railway station on the former Anglia Ruskin University campus, it features five new brick buildings, including a 14-storey tower, four new public squares and three refurbished buildings, one of which is listed.

The number and high standard of entries this year -representing a wide variety of building types, scales and budgets - is testament once again to the skill of the architects working across the eastern region.

The shortlisted projects tackled a broad range of challenges - a complex design brief, difficult context, high client aspirations, or the ever-present drive to respond to the climate emergency. In each case, though, the jury was particularly impressed by way these outstanding projects have met those challenges - creating buildings and spaces with the power to uplift their owners, serve their users or give a little joy to passers-by.”
