Region’s top real estate firms recognised at EuropaProperty’s 6th annual CEE Investment & Green Building Awards

 

EuropaProperty has successfully completed its 6th annual CEE Investment and Green Building Awards at the Intercontinental Hotel in Warsaw, Poland. The awards gala was heralded a great success and was well received by all winners and their guests.

The awards ceremony was once again witnessed by a select group of around 350 senior European and Central European real estate professionals; affirming the event’s status as a true landmark event for the investment sector.

Griffin Real Estate was this year’s big winner, collecting multiple awards across all the main investment categories. Europa Capital, Griffin Real Estate, Panattoni Europe, Ghelamco, Apsys and Rockcastle also walked away with some of the big prizes.

Griffin Real Estate was deemed this year’s best Overall Investor collecting a number of investment awards largely on the back of its record breaking transaction that saw the company acquire Echo and split the development business (Echo Investment) from the yielding business (EPP) in 2015 and then sell 75 percent of EPP to Redefine, in June 2016, who then, with Griffin, built a management team and listed EPP in at a 45 percent premium.

Other big investment winners included Europa Capital, winning four awards as this year’s most successful Office Investor, Investment Asset Management Firm, Core+/Value Add Investor, and for its disposal of Eiffel Square in Budapest to KGAL. Rockcastle was recognised as Retail Investor for its prolific acquisition strategy throughout the region, and it’s record breaking purchase of Bonarka City Center in Krakow for €361 million. More investment recognition went to Union Investment as Core Investor, WP Carey as Warehouse Investor, and Golden Star Estate was recognised for its acquisition of Yareal’s Oxygen Park in Warsaw.

Ghelamco’s Jeroen van der Toolen was named this year’s Industry Professional. The developer, one of Poland’s most prolific, with a successful sustainable-development model across the country, also walked away with the Office Developer of the Year prize. The Jury once again awarded Panattoni Europe as Warehouse Developer, and also selected one of their BTS projects from Poland as Warehouse Development of the Year.

Echo Investment’s Q22 office project in Warsaw collected this year’s Green Building of the Year. The recently acquired office tower was deemed by the Jurors to be the best example of a sustainable office development. Other office developments recognised by the awards included S+B Gruppe’s Krowlewska, Skanska’s Corso Court and Hines’s Proxima I in Warsaw.

Accentuating the strength and interest in the region’s investment sector, were the Investment Brokerage and Investment Broker Awards. Savill’s Michal Cwiklinski won the Investment Broker of the Year, and JLL once again walked away with the Investment Brokerage Firm award.

Another personal award was handed out to GTC’s Michal Gerwat for Property Manager of the Year.

Apsys, a retail developer and property manager, picked up a hat trick of awards. Retail Developer of the Year, Retail Development of the Year for Posnania, their recently opened record breaking development in the Polish city of Poznan, and for their continued excellence in property management they were awarded Property Management Firm of the Year

Further company awards went to Tara Consulting for Professional Service Provider of the Year. TPA was once again voted this year’s best Tax And Financial Adviser, and Stewart Title was voted the best Title Insurance Provider. Other industry winners included, Dentons, Berlin Hyp, Gleeds, Chapman Taylor, and Bilfinger.

On behalf of the sponsors, judges and attendees, we offer our congratulations to all the winners. Foundations are already in place for next year’s event, which promises to be even better.

The sixth annual CEE Investment & Green Building Awards was held on October 26th, 2017.
