Vangarde Retail Park near York
Vangarde Retail Park near York
Part of the shopping park at Monk's Cross, where there is also an eponymous retail park, but Vangarde, hosting John Lewis and M&S seems to seek to differentiate itself from the other, lowlier park where there is, after all, an Aldi.

The wall of M&S is coated, not as I thought from a distance, in a realistic building wrap, but is planted with growing flora. This is watered by run-off from the roof and is one of the park's 'green' credentials which include being served by electric park and ride buses. In 2014, John Lewis York (in the distance in this shot) became the first department store in the world to be awarded 'BREEAM' Outstanding status. BREEAM provides the measure of a building’s environmental performance and sustainability.
