The Meydan Shopping Square has already received several international awards since its opening in August 2007.
For example, the jury of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) awarded the Meydan Shopping Square the world's most prestigious prize in the sector, the "Best of the Best Award 2010" as the most sustainable shopping center in the world.
As part of the European Shopping Centre Awards 2009, the ICSC has already awarded the Meydan Shopping Square the special "Resource" prize.
For the "Prime Property Award 2008", Meydan was the winner among 90 submitted projects from 18 European countries. Meydan was recognised as a real estate project which stands out due to its "remarkable ecological quality", combining this in an "exemplary manner" with economic and socio-cultural sustainability.
