LONDON, 8 April 2021 – CBRE Global Investors announces that Angel Central, Islington, London has been awarded the Fitwel for Workplace award, only the third shopping centre in the world to have achieved this international prestigious health and wellbeing award.
Fitwel, the world’s leading certification system for building health for all, awarded CBRE Global Investors the Fitwel for Workplace: Retail Building v2.1 2-star rating which recognises Angel Central’s commitment to building a place that supports the physical, mental and social health of its customers.
