MIPIM Awards 2012 finalists

The MIPIM Awards Jury met yesterday to select the finalists for the 2012 edition. This year's MIPIM Awards include new categories, offering a broader panorama of the most remarkable achievements in the sector.

„We felt it was important to add new categories to the MIPIM Awards to make them more representative of the various segments of the real estate industry and to take new developments into account,” said Filippo Rean, Director of MIPIM. “So we have added a category for real estate logistics due to its special technical requirements. And the 'Refurbished Office Building’ category has been extended to all types of buildings as renovation is now a central issue in real estate.“

The Jury examined more than 100 projects – either completed or upcoming – to select three finalists in each category that demonstrated outstanding technical and architectural qualities. This year, the geographical spread of projects provides an exceptional panorama of the global market. 47 countries are represented, including Vietnam, Uruguay, Spain, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Argentina, Brazil, Hong Kong, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United States. Combined with the jury’s ranking, MIPIM delegates’ vote during the four-day event will determine the winners.

Furthermore, the project that will get the most pre-MIPIM online vote will receive the ‘People’s Choice Award’. People will be able to start voting on 7 February on the MIPIM website and on its official Facebook page.
