MIPIM 2018 awarded Milan!
The 28th MIPIM Awards were assigned during MIPIM, the leading world’s property market event which took place in Cannes from 13th to 16th March. The results were announced at a gala ceremony held in the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes on Thursday 15th March. This edition of MIPIM Awards has been a great success for Milan, endorsed with two prices for projects that are changing the face of Lombardy capital:
- In the category “Best urban regeneration project” Milan Porta Nuova, the new Business District of the city
- In the category “Best Office & Business Development” Feltrinelli Porta Volta, the first public building built in Italy by the architectural firm Herzog & e de Meuron.
Both these awarded projects were developed by Coima Group and have excelled on world-class competitors and cities such as Berlin, Moscow, London, Jakarta and Chongqing. This prestigious result, which was achieved after a long selection process carried out by a jury “screening” 220 projects from 55 countries, highlights the participation at MIPIM of Greater Milan and Lombardy Region. This system initiative promoted by the Municipality of Milan and the Lombardy Region, with the support of important private partners, including Coima, has brought to the attention of international operators some of the main investment opportunities in the territory. Another Italian success at MIPIM Awards was achieved in the category “Best Shopping Center”, the winner was indeed the FICO (Fabbrica Italiana COntadina) project by Prelios. FICO is the largest agrifood theme park and inaugurated last November in Bologna.
