MIPIM, the world’s largest international real estate event, announces the finalists of the MIPIM Awards, a globally-renowned real estate competition for completed or yet to be built projects around the world.
A jury chaired by François Trausch, Global CEO & CIO of Allianz Real Estate, has been joined by the high-level experts.
The winners will be selected by both the jury’s and MIPIM registered delegates’ votes, cast online and on site. In addition, the jury will award one additional prize – the ‘Special Jury Award’, which goes to their favorite project among all. The winners will be announced at the MIPIM Awards ceremony on the 16th of March at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.
In addition to usual criteria, this year, the jury focused on how projects seek to enhance the built environment’s prospects in line with ESG goals. The six key criteria are sustainability, integration of the project in its environment and community, quality of the user experience, economic contribution, originality of the concept, and architectural qualities.
The categories include “Best new development” with the total surface area less than 150,000 sqm, “Best new mega development” of more than 150,000 sqm, “Best cultural, sports and education project”, “Best hospitality, tourism and leisure project”, “Best refurbished building”, and others.
The finalists are coming from 22 countries with France having the most shortlisted projects with six. China and Germany are next with four apiece, followed by Belgium, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States with three each.
