• MIPIM Asia Awards – APAC’s most extraordinary real estate projects revealed

    9 October 2018

    (8 October 2018, Paris) The Asia-Pacific’s most ambitious, innovative and revelatory real estate projects have been chosen as winners of the MIPIM Asia Awards 2018 – the leading regional property awards show otherwise known as the “Oscars of the Asian real estate world”.

    A total of 30 trailblazing property developments have been recognised with the influential industry honour, revealed ahead of MIPIM Asia, the continent’s leading property summit, coming to Hong Kong November 27-28.

    The winning entrants have been singled out in one of ten different trophy categories, with each category’s three winners now competing for Gold, Silver and Bronze honours. Following a public vote, the final ranked victors will be announced at the MIPIM Asia Awards Gala Dinner – a glitzy event often compared to the Academy Awards – to be hosted at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong on the conference’s closing night.

    “Winning a MIPIM Asia Award has long been established as one of the most prestigious prizes for real estate projects across the APAC region,” said MIPIM Director Ronan Vaspart.

    “We celebrate the developers, architects, government authorities and other property visionaries who push the boundaries, break the rules, and make unimaginable possibilities the solid realities of our skylines,” he added.

    Founded in 2007, the annual MIPIM Asia Awards celebrate the most technically impressive, inventive and publically-enriching property developments from across the APAC region, considering both finished developments and un-built projects in the planning stage.

    A record total of 122 entries were put forward for the MIPIM Asia Awards 2018, which were whittled down to the final 30 winners, drawn from seven different countries and territories, by the esteemed judging panel of 19 industry experts. Chairing the jury this year was François Trausch, an industry titan who is Chairman of the Management Board, Executive Committee and CEO of Allianz Real Estate.

    “The quality of submissions, already high in the past, gets better every year,” said François Trausch. “This is especially true of entries from China where we’ve had really outstanding projects in all categories. In addition, this year we had some very creative and strong submissions from Japan – more than in previous years – and we continue to have good and creative entries from South Korea.

    “Finally, while many of the projects are very often at the conceptual planning stage, we see that a lot of these megaprojects get built and are now operational, and often these plans become very successful projects,” concluded François Trausch.

    The final Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be decided by a public vote drawn from the 900+ delegates expected to attend MIPIM Asia, with the results to be unveiled at the closing night Awards Gala Dinner ceremony on November 28. See below for a full list of winners.

    A spin-off of the world-renowned MIPIM property summit hosted in Cannes every March, MIPIM Asia has established itself as the leading industry conference and networking summit for top-level professionals across the real estate industry in the APAC region.
