MIPIM 2018 - Aedas wins hearts of global design enthusiasts

Lè Architecture by Aedas wins hearts of global design enthusiasts


Aedas-designed Lè Architecture in Taipei, Taiwan, received the most public votes for Commercial-Office - High Rise (16+ Floors) and won Architizer A+ Popular Choice Awards 2018. This year the highly publicised campaign received over 400,000 public votes from more than 100 countries and territories.

Designed by Global Design Principal Dr Andy Wen, Lè Architecture in the Nangang district of Taipei is set to redefine Taipei’s rapidly developing skyline. Its design drew inspiration from the shape of the river pebbles along the Keelung River, developing a unique aesthetic concept that conveys the idea of roundness and elegance, as well as strength and character. The building's egg-like shape implies it is an incubator of knowledge and a metaphor of intellectual revival, which integrates well with the local context and marks an important milestone in the revitalisation of the fast-emerging Nangang district. The 60-metre tall office building employs multiple strategies to add greenery to the façade and is focused on minimising energy demands which enabled it to achieve a LEED Gold certification.

The Architizer A+ Awards promote and celebrate the year’s best architecture and products, with a mission to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion its potential for a positive impact on everyday life. This year’s shortlist was presented online for design enthusiasts from around the globe to vote for their favourites.

The emblematic CEDET building developed by IMMOBEL Poland in the heart of Warsaw is fully leased prior to delivery 

IMMOBEL Poland is finalizing the revitalization and development of the legendary 22,328 m² CEDET building located in the very heart of Warsaw. The office area of this emblematic project is now 100 % leased prior to delivery: the first tenants, including WeWork, will enter in the second half of 2018.

A new place to work and shop 
IMMOBEL Poland - a daughter company from the IMMOBEL Group, famous for its unique projects in city centres (Brussels, Paris, Luxembourg, Warsaw), completed the revitalisation of the CEDET building after 3 years of renovation works. This new 22,328 m² refurbished complex of office spaces (15,266 m²) and retail (7,062 m²) will provide its occupiers a resourceful place to work and shop in the heart of the Polish Capital. From the beginning of the process, the company paid attention to the historical and cultural value of the location, so that the building would regain its former glory. 

“The revitalisation of the CEDET building is a result of future-oriented thinking by ensuring its adaptation to the current reality and needs combined with respect for its history. We wanted the building to be an important place in Warsaw and a meeting location for its inhabitants, as it used to be in the past. Today, I can confirm that we achieved our goal and we will provide the inhabitants of Warsaw with a beautiful building increasing the value of the urban space in that area, making it more lively and attractive”, said Jacek Wachowicz, CEO of IMMOBEL Poland. 

WeWork as a new Flagship and its first location in Central Europe
 In the new office part of CEDET, the WeWork company is going to open its creative common work space, which will be its first facility in Central Europe. Large and small companies will have over 4,000 m² of innovative space at their disposal, located over two levels, together with an internal patio of over 270 m². “Poland has always had a creative workforce and successful businesses. Today, Poland is a rapidly developing economy home to big businesses, an active market for small-to-medium-sized enterprises, and millions of entrepreneurs. Our mission is to give our members the space, community, services, and flexibility they need to bring energy and inspiration to their work, while fostering collaborations with like-minded people who can help their businesses grow and succeed. We’re proud to work with IMMOBEL on our first location in Poland and 12th city in Europe. This convenient location is right next to the Centrum underground station, so our members can travel easily throughout the city. The building is beautiful and will be an amazing opening for WeWork in Warsaw”, added Mikhail Konoplev, General Manager, WeWork Central & Eastern Europe.

The full lease and upcoming delivery confirm IMMOBEL’s 2018 target
 “IMMOBEL is currently building more than 800,000 m² of projects. Thanks to the full lease of CEDET, we can now focus on its disposal which, if successful, will contribute positively to the 2018 results and allow IMMOBEL to reach its foreseen business plan. We will be communicating on 12 September 2018 our halfyearly results; we are confident as we see numerous residential projects hitting their sales targets and our reinforced teams are working heavily on developing and enlarging our pipeline”, added Alexander Hodac, CEO of IMMOBEL Group.

PROPTECH BALTIC LAUNCHES WORLD’S FIRST PROPTECH SANDBOX
TO TEST TECH PILOTS FREE OF CHARGE


Cannes, 14th March 2018, PropTech Baltics has announced the launch of RealBox (www.proptechbaltic.com/realbox) the first PropTech ‘sandbox’ in the world, aimed at companies worldwide and inviting them to test and pilot their projects in Lithuania. The innovative concept, announced during the MIPIM real estate exhibition in Cannes, France, is a global first of its kind and is aimed at all PropTech companies including service parking, RE management, VR and big data.

RealBox’s objective is to tackle an industry-wide issue. PropTech companies need to test their technology and concepts with trial runs before going to market - this usually involves finding property partners and spending time and money into figuring out and carrying out the needed improvements. RealBox helps companies cut the time and costs needed to run pilot tests by providing set-up free of charge.

There are 48 buildings and over 930,000 square metres available as sandbox environments in Vilnius and Kaunas, Lithuania’s two largest cities, including residential, mixed-use and commercial buildings. Among these are 4 of Lithuania’s largest shopping centres with a total surface of over 300,000 square metres.

Justina Jursyte, RealBox project lead and Co-Founder of PropTech Baltic, said: "PropTech is growing at enormous rates, generating ideas and solutions that will change how we think about property and property solutions in the future. With RealBox, we are offering a playground for all PropTech companies, regardless of their field, to come to the Baltics and try their ideas in practice."

Basing RealBox in Vilnius was a strategic decision. The Lithuanian capital is fast becoming a significant European hub for technology companies and innovation. Opening a company in Lithuania is extremely easy. Its favourable legal and tax environment has attracted companies such as Barclays and Western Union. The likes of Uber and Sentiance have also recently flocked to the Lithuanian capital to make the most of its pool of young talent, excellent infrastructure and low operational costs.

Mindaugas Statulevicius, CEO of the Lithuanian Real Estate Development Association and Co-Founder of PropTech Baltic, added: Vilnius is being increasingly recognised as one of the most exciting capitals in the world. Even though recently created, PropTech Baltic has seen rapid growth, and is ready to take another step forward. We’re happy to open our doors and invite the global tech community to test their pilot projects in Lithuania with RealBox".

“Vilnius is already known as one of the biggest fintech hubs due to its attractive regulations and open-data policies. Our capital counts with various platforms that foment the growth of PropTech, including one of the first Blockchain centres in the world. With RealBox, Vilnius is well on its path to becoming one of the most significant PropTech hubs in the world,” commented the Mayor of Vilnius Remigijus Šimašius.

Vilnius Triumphs at ?fDi Intelligence? awards ? among TOP 3 Cities of the Future

Today, March 13th (Tuesday), at Cannes in the biggest real estate contact fair MIPIM 2018, Vilnius Mayor Remigijus ?ima?ius collected the award for Vilnius City. Vilnius? investment attraction strategy has been recognised as one of the best in Europe. Vilnius became the third best European city of the future in the elections of European cities which are most attractive for foreign investment of announced by the magazine fDi Intelligence, published by an investment expert division of Financial Times.

fDi Magazine preparing the awards has been recognised by the international community as a barometer of the attractiveness of cities and regions for investment. Ratings of the fDi Magazinepublished every two years have become a starting point in mutual competitions for new investment among European regions and cities.

In the rating drawn up according to the investment attraction strategy, Vilnius was ranked the third within the category mid-sized European cities of the future. In this category, Vilnius was ahead of cities such as Liverpool, Bilbao, Port, Newcastle, Pozna?, Ostrava, and Brno. In this rating, Vilnius has been outscored only by Bordeaux (France) and Szczecin (Poland).

According to the Mayor of Vilnius Remigijus ?ima?ius, such high recognition in this rating opens up even more doors and helps to find new investments within the sight, as well as gives weight in negotiations with new investors.

?Foreign experts notice and appreciate consistent and focused efforts of Vilnius to create a new generation city, open for state-of-the art technologies and hungry for the bravest ideas. These efforts have already given their fruit ? we are not only visible, but also leading in our category. It means that other cities are already looking at us as a role model, whereas investors ? as an opportunity. We will not miss these opportunities ? we will use each of them for the creation of Vilnius, the city of the future,? told Mr. ?ima?ius.


fDi Intelligence which is the division of Financial Times analysed the city?s strategy for attracting direct investments in the category of investment attraction, an ability to attract and retain foreign investment, also additional activities whereby the city ensures the quality of services. The Vilnius investment attraction strategy created by ?Go Vilnius? has been highly evaluated by an independent team of experts of fDi Intelligence, the composition whereof this year also included Douglas Clark, Director of the international consultancy company ?Location Connections?.

Beside the Hungarian capital the rural investments also have good return potential

Beside the property developments of Budapest four university cities introduce themselves in the world’s first real estate event, MIPIM in Cannes.

The organisers of the Hungarian stand expect great international interest on the part of property developers as well as concrete investments in the world’s first international real property business exhibition, at this year’s MIPIM in Cannes between 13-16 March 2018. This year not only the major projects in Budapest but the features investments and property development opportunities of four university cities (Debrecen, Miskolc, Pécs and Szeged) will be presented as well. The organisers emphasize that beside the capital the rural investments also have good return potential, the regulations are predictable, and corporate income tax which is the lowest in the EU   and stable economic growth provide a favourable investment environment. Besides presenting the developmental directions, goals and opportunities there is an exceptional interest in the Hungarian presence in connection with the Liget Budapest Project already in the execution phase, which is the largest scale park and landscape architecture task combined with institution development in the history of Hungary since the Millennium.

The Budapest-Hungary stand was established collectively by the Local Government of the Capital City Budapest, the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA) and the Association of Property Developers’ Round Table in order to promote deliberately the most exciting metropolitan and rural property investment opportunities. Hungary’s emphasized presence in the Cannes muster is justified by the extraordinary dynamics which characterizes the Hungarian property investment market.  According to the annual report of CBRE, the largest property consultant of the world, the value of investments in Hungarian properties has risen by 71% annually since 2012, opposite to the Central European regional average of 26%. In 2017 properties were purchased in Hungary by domestic and foreign investors in the value of EUR 1.8 billion, and this volume will presumably rise a bit further this year. According to the latest survey of the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency, EY and SSC Heroes 80% of the shared services centres settled in Hungary plan expansion in the near future, and 50% of the respondents would consider rural locations for the expansion. For the promotion of the above there are already infrastructural and office developments taking place, and the forecasts indicate numerous development opportunities.
Lajos Kósa, minister without portfolio responsible for the development of cities with county authority, emphasized: The Hungarian government has started the largest rural development programme ever called ‘Modern Cities Programme’, which is supposed to help the development of the cities with county authority. As the minister responsible for the execution of the programme my goal is to achieve that as many Hungarian cities become even more attractive habitats and attractive targets for the investors as possible in the following years. Debrecen received the great honour of being chosen by the Financial Times in its category the city possessing the most outstanding strategy to raise capital in Europe. We will receive the ‘European City of the Future’ award in the exhibition with László Papp, lord mayor of Debrecen. In the ranking of ten cities Debrecen came before five British, a Bulgarian, a Czech, a Serbian and a Finnish city.
Debrecen receives the award of the professional journal Financial Times FDI Intelligence in the category of the most promising city among the cities with two hundred thousand inhabitants. Not only Debrecen achieved nice results in the competition: Budapest became the 9th in the list of the European capitals of the future. According to Balázs Szeneczey, deputy lord mayor for urban development, Budapest has recently developed in a spectacular way, being recognised internationally for preserving the traditional values of the city, as well as creating new values. The complex projects of renewing districts shaping the future and image of the Hungarian capital are of unequalled scale across Europe. Last year the value of property developments in Hungary exceeded 2 billion Euros, 90% of which concentrated in Budapest. In the background of the expansion there are the concepts of long term urban development and predictable but sufficiently flexible regulation. The goal of our participation at MIPIM, the most renowned property business muster is for the Hungarian capital to become one of the main European stations of the international property developments.
Róbert Ésik, president of the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency emphasized: the goal of HIPA is to draw the international audience’s attention to the emerging countryside locations besides presenting the property market of Budapest. Debrecen, Miskolc, Pécs and Szeged are popular targets of the greenfield foreign investments and capacity expansions, and they would like to draw the property developers’ attention to these locations with their presence in the exhibition.
Benedek Gyorgyevics, leader of the Liget Budapest Project and CEO of Városliget Zrt. says the whole European professional community monitors the Liget Budapest Project which is already in the execution phase. With the completion of the project the Városliget (City Park) and its surroundings can start recovery at the beginning of the 2020s.
He emphasized that a tourist attraction is created which is unique in Europe, there is no urban development project in the region of the same scale and quality today. He highlighted: last year was a milestone in the history of the Liget Budapest Project, when after six years of preparatory work the execution of the plans started.
Ernő Takács, chair of the Association of Property Developers’ Round Table says the property market investments and the results achieved in tourism prove to the potential investors and developers that Budapest has become a trendy investment target inside Europe, the prices are more favourable compared to other cities, therefore the profitability indicators are very attractive. The property development sector has started to expand considerably, the recovery continues in 2018 as well, it may exceed its successful course preceding the crisis.
At MIPIM the exhibitors of Debrecen, Pécs, Miskolc and Szeged emphasized the supportive environment, local job opportunities, highly qualified work force and the presence of conditions of a quality life for employees, as well as they highlighted the scientific-educational background available. 
Out of the big property developers of Budapest AternorFutureal GroupGranit Polus GroupGTCHB ReavisHorizon DevelopmentTriGranit and WING will present their planned or current developments which significantly transform the image of certain Budapest districts.

Cloudscraper Exchange announces full European launch for commercial real estate markets

Building on its success following the public launch in February 2018 in London, Cloudscraper -  the only global commercial real estate exchange for buying, selling and financing -  announces expansion of coverage beyond Germany and the United Kingdom to include all of Central and Western Europe.

Cloudscraper combines the worlds of PropTech and FinTech’s into a unified trading and communications platform, revolutionising the commercial real estate sector, allowing all parties involved to make the management of disjointed deals and their participants issues of the past.

Cloudscraper has developed cutting-edge technology and tools to make the entire deal instigation, discovery and management processes substantially more efficient, simpler, and faster. Unifying all trading participants, Cloudscraper links trading opportunities, stakeholders, their advisors, and equity and debt capital into an integrated network with the realistic ability to realise asset sales in as little as one week.

For the first time, all components of the commercial real estate capital stack can be found and structured through one platform - equity, senior debt, mezzanine debt, loan syndication - even the ability to raise and trade joint venture equity - all with the ability to manage the entire due diligence process through a single hub.

The company, headquartered in London with offices in Tel Aviv, Dublin and Berlin, executed a highly successful ‘stealth’ period since its inception in 2014, attracting more than 100 global organisations representing assets in excess of $200 billion. Following the successful public launch February 2018, Cloudscraper has seen an almost 50% increase in users wanting to participate in the unstoppable dynamic and technological change occurring within the commercial real estate sector.

The market for Cloudscraper is immense. Global real estate assets are valued at some $217trn – 2.7 times the world GDP. It also represents 60% of all global assets, making it the largest asset class on the planet, while every year close to a trillion dollars worth of commercial real estate is traded worldwide.

“Cloudscraper’s purpose is to empower all parties by providing a single unified ecosystem that facilitates secure, standard and efficient communication and deal processes throughout the depth of the commercial real estate industry, whilst providing a hub for integration with existing systems and platforms.”

The current commercial property sales process can easily take six months or more - appointing a broker to find an indicative value for a building, going to potential buyers to get indicative interest, setting up a data room, calling for bids, approaching lenders, lenders undertaking due diligence, finally selecting a buyer and having them undertake due diligence; it is a very laborious process and Cloudscraper can change that.

Furthermore, Cloudscraper has also created the first-of-its-kind CS Ticker Symbol system to help provide order to the fragmented and chaotic global structure of the industry.
      
Cloudscraper CTO Martin Sekel says: “The complexities of building this platform have been extensive as we really are breaking new ground. Our aim was not to change the essence and tradition of the industry and its processes, but to evolutionarily digitize them into a single and unified solution.”

Cloudscraper CFO Matthew Webster comments: “The commercial real estate industry is set to undergo massive change and Cloudscraper will lead from the front. While technology has already demonstrably impacted the residential property market, the commercial world is tremendously lagging. Yet in this market too, professionals are desperately looking to find ways of utilising technology to make things quicker, easier, more accurate and cost effective.

“Companies are today reliant on tablets and mobile phones, so being able to access the right information, statistics and data conveniently and in real-time is integral to effective and productive operations.

“While the technology may have changed, the way people work has not – Cloudscraper allows all parts of the sum to connect easily, communicate and exchange data with minimal fuss, saving both time and money. We have adopted a holistic approach to everything we do to network and connect the real estate industry on a platform that will change the landscape forever.”

Cloudscraper Executive Chairman and CEO Moses Gottlieb states: “After over three years developing the technology, the company is ready for global roll-out – now is the time to leverage the Cloudscraper platform for market participants to stay relevant in an industry undergoing unstoppable dynamic change.”

Conferences focusing on investment in the official programme:

An Africa Forum, a Legal Forum and a PropTech Lab

Paris, February 21, 2018 - Three new events will feature as part of the MIPIM 2018 programme: the Africa Forum, the Regulation and Legal Forum and the PropTech Lab. With a driving ambition of being the precursor of new trends, these new targeted events will respond to the needs of the different segments of the real estate industry and offer new business and networking opportunities to its attendees. 

Organised by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, MIPIM will take place in Cannes from March 13-16, 2018.

With over 100 countries now represented at MIPIM annually, attendees are able to get a clear overview of the international real estate market and where different markets are headed. For the first time ever, MIPIM is dedicating a half day on Thursday, March 15th to the continent of Africa, with two key panel sessions.

‘Africa: the urbanisation effect’ will explore how investors can anticipate the scale and nature of real estate demand in such a diverse continent, which will account for half of the world's population growth by 2050. Speakers include: Frederic Maury, Editorial Director, Jeune Afrique; Richard Barnes, Barnes Media International; Yomi Ademola, Head of West Africa, Rendeavour; Nicolas Willemin, Senior Investment Manager, PROPARCO and Eduardo Lopez Moreno, Director of Research and Capacity Development at UN-Habitat.

The second panel session: ‘Africa: key success factors’ will tackle the issue of how urbanisation can be developed without industrialisation? What are the key success factors? Speakers include Duncan Vink, Managing Director, UFF African Agri Investments-CPD; Namasivayen Poonoosamy, Managing Director, Board of Investment Mauritius ; Nick Langford, Head of Kenya, Rendeavour and Chris Igwe, Founder of Chris Igwe International.

MIPIM has a tradition of creating exhibition areas and forums dedicated to specific segments of real estate beginning with hotel and tourism, the MIPIM Innovation Forum, the Asia Summit, and the popular MIPIM RE-Invest summit. The expansion will continue at this year’s edition to include a closed door Regulation and Legal Forum(March 13th, 2 pm) where lawyers, solicitors and jurists will discuss how the European framework and national legislations impact the real estate industry. Wallis Goelen-Vandebrock, Head of Unit of Inclusive Growth, Urban & Territorial Development at Directorate-General for Regional & Urban Policy, European Commission, will open the forum on the new European directives that will impact the real estate sector. Patrick Gerry, Partner, Simmons & Simmons and Stephane Zecevic, Notaire, LNQV, will also be among the forum’s key speakers.

Also new this year, the PropTech Lab will be a complimentary event to the MIPIM Innovation Forum exhibition space, which introduces tech companies to the RE community. The PropTech Lab will take place on March 15th at 4:30 pm and will be a closed-door event that gathers RE and Tech decisions makers, in a round table format, to discuss the evolution and growth of the PropTech industry. Speakers include: Leonard Brody, Partner, BosaX Ventures; James Dearsley, Founder, PropTech Consult; Dan Hughes, Founder, Alpha Property Insight; Robin Rivaton, Founder, Real Estech Ventures; Wouter Truffino, Founder & CEO, Holland ConTech & PropTech and Aaron Block, Co-Founder and MD, MetaProp NYC. The round-table discussions will be followed a networking cocktail which will be open to all MIPIM participants. 

Having launched MIPIM PropTech in New York last year, MIPIM is hosting the first MIPIM PropTech Europe, scheduled to take place in June, in Paris. The new event will gather key decision makers from property with startups and technology companies.

“MIPIM is not only the assembly point for the international real estate industry every year, but also an opportunity for those real estate professionals with shared strategies and areas of interest to speak and exchange together. It is for this reason that we have created new rendez-vous events at MIPIM that will further satisfy the growing needs of our clients.” explains Ronan Vaspart, Director of MIPIM.



STRONG SUPPORT CONTINUES FOR BELFAST ATTENDANCE AT INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT CONFERENCE

A delegation of over 70 Belfast business leaders will return to MIPIM in Cannes next month, where they will present a portfolio of major real estate investment and development opportunities in the city to a potential audience of over 28,000 international property investors, developers and occupiers.

The trip has been made possible thanks to a record financial support of over £300,000 – 80% of which has come from private sector sponsors.

Over 30 organisations will represent the city at MIPIM and will deliver 15 events across the three days at MIPIM, each centred around a range of ‘key strengths’ that underpin the Belfast’s investment proposition, including: Talent, Tax, Technology & Innovation, Location, Fast Growth Sectors, Track Record for FDI, and Quality of Life.   

Jackie Henry, chair of the private sector taskforce leading the Belfast at MIPIM delegation, said that that the event presents an invaluable opportunity to highlight the momentum that is driving Belfast’s growth and success, and the wealth of investment and development opportunities on offer to inward investors.

“MIPIM 2018 will be about building upon the excellent success achieved through our attendance at the conference in the past two years. Once again, the Belfast delegation will champion our strong proposition as an outstanding city in which to live, work, visit, learn and, importantly, invest,” she said.

“We have structured a busy programme of engaging events that will enable us to showcase how and why Belfast is an attractive city for investors, and what is driving growth and regeneration in the city. 

“Alongside a programme of real estate project showcase events, we will be participating in a series of ‘special interest’ slots that will ensure the Belfast proposition at MIPIM is as compelling as possible.  This will include a panel session on the creation of new city neighbourhoods, chaired by Sir Howard Bernstein and a session featuring Eddie Irvine, focusing on the key accelerators of Belfast’s growth and success.
           
“With the support of Queen’s University Belfast, we will also be bringing one of our famous electric DeLorean cars to conference – which fits in very well with our focus on talent, innovation and the future of Belfast, and will help encourage strong footfall to our stand. “

Councillor Mairéad O’Donnell, chair of Belfast City Council’s City Growth and Regeneration Committee, said: “This is a really exciting time for Belfast. This year alone we will see over 1,500 new hotel bedrooms and 2,000 student beds released into the market, Foreign Direct Investment continues to choose the North of Ireland as a great place to invest, and we have some spectacular growth happening across our technology and creative sectors. We believe that it is more important than ever that Belfast promotes itself on the global stage to ensure we attract increased investment to support our ambitious plans for this wonderful city.

“Investors, developers and employers who are familiar with Belfast can see first-hand the wave of transformation taking place in our city, and they are making positive decisions about their future here as a result.  We want to keep building on that momentum, but it can only be achieved through strong collaboration with our private sector, city partners and Invest NI. MIPIM is one way which shows how this collaborative partnership approach can really deliver for our city and we are confident that, collectively, we will reap the benefits in the years ahead.”

She added: “It is important as a city that we drive regeneration and investment to see our ambitions become reality, but it should not be about development at any cost. We want to develop the city in a way which is good for all of our residents and communities. Inclusive Growth is a cornerstone of the Belfast Agenda, ensuring we grow our economy in an inclusive way to tackle the inequalities that currently exist across housing and low wages. We welcome and encourage investment which helps deliver on inclusive growth and makes this city a great place for everyone who lives, works, visit or studies in Belfast.”

For the first time, this year’s Belfast delegation will include Signature Living – the Liverpool headquartered hotel developer that first encountered Belfast at MIPIM in 2016 and has since committed to developing at least four hotels in the city, including the George Best Hotel and Lanyon Hotel. 

“Over the past two years, I have seen first-hand how well the Belfast delegation promotes the city during the three days at MIPIM,” said Lawrence Kenwright, founder and chairman of Signature Living. “It was their positivity and enthusiasm about Belfast that ultimately caught my attention at the conference in 2016, leading to Signature Living now firmly establishing a long-term footprint in what we see as a vibrant, flourishing city.

“I look forward to joining the Belfast delegation to promote this great city and sharing my own positive experiences about the level of support and encouragement I have received as a new investor coming into this market.”

  • New West End Company New West End Company, which represents over 600 property owners, retailers and leisure occupiers in London’s West End. The next three years will be the most important for London in a generation, as the delivery of the multi-billion pound Elizabeth railway line creates opportunities for investment in the city on a scale never seen before. With the new Elizabeth line running through its heart, the West End is at the centre of this historic transformation and New West End Company is spearheading the effort to maximize the benefits of this significant infrastructure investment, which will secure the West End’s future as the world’s most attractive destination for global capital, business, culture, retail and tourism, and see London set a new benchmark for global cities in the 21st century. Jace Tyrell’s role at the centre of the London business community at this pivotal moment in the city’s history, makes him one of the foremost authorities on the UK’s capital city, and the projects, trends and policies that will determine its development and position on the global stage over coming decades.

MIPIM 2018 announces bumper 
edition for hotel & tourism

Paris, January 31, 2018 - Rapid evolution in the hotel sector due to changing living habits and an increasing demand from a more urban, connected world population, means that hotel and tourism is booming at MIPIM.

Mapping World Urbanity
The Central Theme of MIPIM 2018

Paris, December 11, 2017 - MIPIM, the world’s leading property market, today unveils its central theme for 2018 – ‘Mapping World Urbanity.’

The expansion of urban areas is redrawing the world map, helping to reposition cities - rather than countries - as economic powers. The 29th edition of MIPIM will explore the future of urban living and how these changes will affect the strategies of the property industry.

Organised by Reed MIDEM, MIPIM, will be held in Cannes from 13 to 16 March 2018.

The MIPIM conference programme will explore this chosen theme by posing the following three questions:

  • How will we live in cities in 2030/2050?
  • What will the new rules for investment and property development be in a world dominated by cities?
  • What are the best strategies for building future cities in a globalized world?
     
A global demographic challenge that calls for new urban models 
According to the United Nations, the world population should reach 8.5 billion by 2030 and 9.7 billion in 2050. By 2050, 60% of the world’s population will be urban-based, with a rising life expectancy. Over the next 15 years, 60% of the population will be classified as middle class with higher incomes but also higher expectations, while 91% of the growth in world consumption will come from city-dwellers.

The major challenges for property professionals, both public and private, will be how to cope with this growth in city populations and offer housing, offices and leisure for all, while meeting the new expectations of these people in terms of services, mobility, infrastructure and sustainability.

The new role of cities in an urbanized world 
Today, cities have become economic and population centres with global reach, sometimes surpassing the nation to which they belong. They generate more than two thirds of global GDP, and a city such as London has a GDP equivalent to that of the entire Netherlands, the world’s 17th largest economy, while New York has a GDP comparable to that of Canada and Beijing to Sweden.

While the concept of global cities is not new, it is now a major discussion point as this  configuration reveals new challenges and opportunities for property professionals: increasing urbanization of the population; densification of transport; the need to improve energy efficiency in buildings by using more durable materials, while at the same time factoring in the economic, political and financial issues linked to globalization.

Urban sovereignty and connectivity 
This phenomenon of increased urban sovereignty is closely linked to the rise of global connectivity due to new technologies and the development of transport, leading in turn to increased financial flows and international trade. In this context, the concept of glocalization is more relevant than ever. Professionals need to understand the dynamics of local markets while taking into account the broader rules of international property investment. Despite global connectivity, there are still striking differences between markets around the world and these differences need to be understood and anticipated.

"From demography and sovereignty to connectivity and sustainability, cities are taking on a new dimension at MIPIM," explains Ronan Vaspart, Director of MIPIM. "The key to successful property development is finding the right balance between international investment strategies and local opportunities. MIPIM 2018 will provide welcome input to help understand the issues of urban growth and outline the future of property in an urbanizing world," he added.

MIPIM TO LAUNCH MIPIM PROPTECH EUROPE IN JUNE 2018

Paris, 9 November, 2017 - Reed MIDEM, organiser of MIPIM, MIPIM UK, MIPIM Asia Summit and the MIPIM PropTech NYC Summit, today announces the launch of the MIPIM PropTech Europe in June 2018. The new, two-day event will be held in Paris on June 19-20, 2018. Reed MIDEM launched the first MIPIM PropTech NYC Summit in 2016, in partnership with MetaProp NYC – the world’s premier real estate technology nexus. In October 2017, the second edition of the New York Summit welcomed 820 delegates representing 550 firms from 33 countries and was the flagship event of the NYC Real Estate Tech Week. Delegates were drawn from the Tech sector (50%), real estate (40%) and VCs/Investors (10%). MIPIM PropTech Europe will expand the New York concept to include a significant exhibition zone for Tech companies and startups to showcase their latest projects and ideas. MIPIM PropTech Europe will cover real estate’s complete value chain and asset classes including residential, offices, retail, hotel and leisure and industrial property. Tech sectors that will be represented include property analytics and data, investment and crowdfunding, smart cities, building technology, workflow solutions, BIM, 3D/Virtual Reality and blockchain. “New Tech companies are rapidly proving the importance of their ideas within the global real estate industry,” says Filippo Rean, Head of Real Estate Markets, Reed MIDEM. “The growing interest of the real estate industry for the Tech sector that we have been addressing these past years at MIPIM in Cannes, coupled with the success of the first two editions of the PropTech Summit in New York, has encouraged us to bring a dedicated event in Europe.” In 2015, MIPIM in Cannes chose ‘The Digital Revolution’ as its central theme, prompting many real estate companies to comment that this was the first time they had come face-to-face with leading Tech companies and startups within an event. Since then, MIPIM has been host of Tech innovators that have developed solutions devoted to smart cities, to smart offices, to the use of Big Data, the Internet of Things and Virtual Reality. “The real estate industry may have been slow to adopt new technology into its strategic thinking but that is changing fast and the real estate tech industry is maturing quickly. In Paris next year, MIPIM PropTech Europe delegates from a real estate background will discover some of the most innovative Tech solutions coming to market. At the same time, Tech startups and companies will access the legacy property sector to accelerate their development,” comments Filippo Rean, Head of Real Estate Markets, Reed MIDEM.

Real Estate Tech Trends from MIPIM

A stream of ongoing change





















W
hen asked about his foresight on emerging competitors in the real estate industry, the director of a large European property development company told PwC and the Urban Land Institute,
“Our biggest competitor or threat is a company that we do not know yet, which could be two friends working together in a garage.”
In
a wavering global landscape redefined by disruptive technology, geopolitical uncertainty, and demographic changes, real estate players and urban planners face new challenges. The world’s leading property market was an opportunity for different players to explore new options.
MIPIM 2017 explored major market trends and business opportunities.
For anyone attending, it became clear that the traditionally conservative real estate industry is starting to embrace change, in every aspect of the business.

The MIPIM Innovation Forum was THE place to identify innovative trends and key industry players.

Innovation is reshaping the way real estate projects are conceived, funded, built, marketed, managed, and even how property transactions are made. Here are some highlights from the show:
P
roject Conception. Japanese project Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City, winner of the Best Futura Mega Project 2017, embodies sustainability on three levels: environmental, human, and economic. It has the best green-building technologies and smart environmentally-friendly design, urban infrastructure that favors the physical and social health of its inhabitants, and a smart educational and business platform to enable new industries to drive economic growth.
























Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City: environmental, human and economic sustainability

F
unding. Online real estate crowdfunding platforms are changing the way projects are funded and individual investments are made. Platforms like the French FundImmo allow individuals to directly invest in development projects, and give real estate developers an alternative to traditional capital markets for funding.
According to a Massolution study, total real estate crowdfunding investments are expected to grow worldwide to more than $250 billion by the end of 2020.






















Online real estate crowdfunding platforms offer innovative investment and funding alternatives

B
uilding. BIM management systems used with indoor and outdoor 3D mapping technologies increase efficiency, keeping projects on-schedule and on-design.
When it comes to outdoor 3D mapping, software developer Pix4D proposes drone-based systems and the Pix4D Crane Camera: an automated site visualization and documentation tool used with Pix4Dbim software. It creates 3D data for measurements, comparing the current site build with design drawings, monitoring the construction process with a cloud-based timeline, and sharing the results.






















Pix4D offers photogrammetry-powered aerial surveying solutions for BIM monitoring

M
arketing. Marketing and property showcases are adopting new digital technologies such as interactive 3D content, 360° virtual tours, and virtual reality.
Pix4D revealed a sample website showing interactive 3D content created with its drone-based, photogrammetry-powered real estate solution, designed to engage clients online through a first-person experience.
London-based companies Eyespy 360 and Cubedots presented a self service 360° Virtual Tour Platform, and immersive virtual reality solutions, respectively.






















Property showcase is incorporating new technologies

P
roperty Management and Transactions. Property inspection, maintenance assessment, asset management, tenant operations and transaction systems are also integrating new technologies.
Paris-based Air Support presented its services for drone-based inspection and site supervision.
USA-based MRI announced the acquisition of ResidentCheck, a provider of resident screening, which adds a new layer to their building and tenant operations tools.
Hong Kong-based home rental platform WeDeal introduced its end-to-end solutions for property owners and home rental seekers: from online property display to signing the rental agreement.
China World Trade Center Phase 3C by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas makes a double win at MIPIM Awards and The Architectural Review MIPIM Future Project Awards  

China World Trade Center Phase 3C in Beijing, China, designed by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas, made a double win at MIPIM, the world’s leading property market, this year in France – the project was crowned Best Futura Project at MIPIM Awards 2017 and awarded a Commendation in the Retail and Leisure category at The Architectural Review MIPIM Future Project Awards.

Anchoring the new central business district in the capital city is the China World Trade Center development which has grown organically over the past 30 years. Phase 3C is  the fifth and final phase for the entire development, and it is set to become a catalyst as a cultural centre to bring people together from within and beyond China World Trade Center by introducing a ‘Civic Green’ to the entire master plan and serving as a front door to the complex. It will also allow a continuous loop which ties the current and future subway lines together to enable and encourage connections over and under Third Ring Road.

The challenge and the motivation of the scheme is to allow the Civic Green, front door and retail loop to complement each other. The Civic Green is designed to be a sloped plan lifted above the ground, dipping down to the main entrance and allowing immediate access and visibility from all levels of the development. The front door, on the other hand, is carved to immediately descend down to the retail loop, extending the basement as part of the ground plane. A large exhibition center becomes the ‘attractor’ at the basement level to invite visitors down to the retail loop, while an Olympic-sized ice-skating rink under the Civic Green is another attractor from above. The programmes are thoughtfully planned to be more civic focused. In additional to traditional retail and food and beverage elements, there will be art studios, large exhibition spaces, an organic farm, cultural and educational facilities to enrich the site.

Opportunity knocks at buoyant MIPIM 2017
Investors confident despite uncertainties 

Cannes, 17 March, 2017 - 24,200 real estate and city leaders from 100 countries, including 5,000 investors and financial institutions, came together at the world’s property market MIPIM this week against a background of continued debate on how Brexit will impact the market.

In the midst of political change - fuelled by the US presidential elections, the Brexit vote, elections in France, Germany and the Netherlands – accelerating tech innovation and a growing global urban population, MIPIM chose The New Deal for Real Estate as its central theme, providing industry leaders and investors with the opportunity to discuss evolving real estate strategies.

According to Cushman & Wakefield, the amount of new capital available for global real estate investments stands at $435 billion – lower than in 2016 but still the second highest figure recorded since 2009.

Cushman & Wakefield identified the United States as the leading target for investors, followed by China and the United Kingdom. Real Capital Analytics reported that in 2016, some €30.15 billion of Asian capital headed to the US which invested some €14.4 billion in Asian real estate markets.
At the annual MIPIM RE-Invest Summit, bringing together some 60 representatives from the world’s leading institutional investment funds, two thirds of participants said they would be net buyers in 2017. Combined, the RE-Invest delegates manage over $600 billion in real estate assets.

What was clear at MIPIM this week was that the British government, spearheaded by the Department of International Trade (DIT), in partnership with the British Property Federation, was sparing no effort to reassure investors that Britain’s real estate sector remains a key destination for property investment.
For the first time in the history of MIPIM, the UK government was represented with its own pavilion and Britain’s ‘Invest in Great’ marketing slogan was highly visible. And at 960, the number of UK exhibiting companies and cities increased by 24% compared to 2016.

With the MIPIM doors barely open, senior representatives from Manchester, London, Amsterdam and Stockholm gathered on Manchester’s stand to debate the likely impact of Brexit.
Manchester’s outgoing Chief Executive, Sir Howard Bernstein, said that at a time of uncertainty it was more important than ever for Manchester to promote the fact that it is open for business.

Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor of London, commented that the UK capital will continue to attract major investment. Referring to Brexit, Pipe noted “whatever happens, London will come through this.” The Deputy Mayor predicted that if real estate investors seek alternative destinations to London, they are likely to look at New York, Singapore or Hong Kong rather than European capitals.
 

Eric van der Burg, Deputy Mayor of Amsterdam, argued that his city’s highly skilled, multi-lingual workforce and excellent infrastructure would attract international companies from the UK to Amsterdam.

Returning to MIPIM for a second time in two years, Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile de France Region, noted that all the public authorities in the Paris Region were represented in a single pavilion – a sign of a collective approach to attracting international investors and companies. She described the strategy put in place to attract investors and entrepreneurs from all over the world, insisting on the exceptional innovation ecosystem and the depth of the real estate market, as well as on the fact investors now don’t hesitate to bet on Paris Region.

“Among the major development projects currently being built, the Paris Region have 3 million sq m of office space available and the biggest business park of Europe with 53 million sq m. We launched a massive investment plan of €30 billion to double the capacity of the Paris subway by 2030. On the education side, we launched €5 billion of investment to welcome 22,000 new high school students in the next 10 years and to renovate 6.5 million sq m of existing real estate,” declared Valérie Pécresse.

Mega-infrastructure projects were to be found throughout the MIPIM exhibition halls and pavilions. Istanbul Grand Airport promoted its gigantic Airport City Istanbul as a sustainable project that could serve as a model for other airport cities around the world. The airport on its own is costing around €7 billion. The Stuttgart 21 project provides underground and surface links to the city’s airport and trade-fair site and is budgeted at €6.5 billion. In Amsterdam, the first metro line to cross the Lj river is due to open in 2018 at a cost of €3 billion. Meanwhile work continues on the €30 billion Paris: Grand Paris Express which is due to be completed in 2030. Finally, London’s €17 billion Crossrail link between east and west London is heading for phased introduction by 2020.

With 5,000 investors and financial institutions in Cannes, MIPIM welcomed a growing number of institutional investors. Among them, over 60 pension and insurance funds and 15 sovereign wealth funds, including ADIA, QIA, GIC, Gingko Tree, KIC, Temasek, KIA, KWAP, Hanwha Life.
 
An armada of leading politicians descended on MIPIM in support of city, regional and national real estate projects. Among the senior politicians attending MIPIM, France’s Minister of Housing and Sustainable Habitat Emmanuelle Cosse was joined by Former French Prime Minister and Mayor of Bordeaux Alain Juppé, Gavin Barwell, Britain’s Minister of State for Housing and Planning, Russia’s Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities, Mikhail Men and Turkey’s Minister of Environment and Urban Planning Mehmet Ozhaseki.

“In addition to the core real estate business which is conducted at MIPIM, the event brings urban and political leaders together to support their domestic property industry and discuss some of the major challenges facing a world where 60% of the population will soon be living in cities,” commented newly-appointed Director of MIPIM, Ronan Vaspart.

The international scope of MIPIM meant that a plethora of major real estate projects were on show from around the world.

Outside MIPIM’s Palais des Festivals venue, Dubai-based developer Nakheel’s pavilion showcased €1.5 billion worth of real estate investment opportunities including the Palm 360, a 220-metre twin tower hotel and residential development within the Palm Jumeirah complex.

Next door, Dubai Holding unveiled a 20-year masterplan for a new Jumeirah Central district including six projects in phase one of the scheme. Dubai Holding used MIPIM to find investment partners for the mixed-use projects. When complete, Jumeirah Central will comprise 75 city blocks, 278 buildings and provide residential accommodation for some 35,000 people.

From Africa, Semer Investment Group (Emirates/Senegal) and Dubai-based architects FSS Consult unveiled Diamniadio Lake City – a residential business and leisure destination billed as the largest urban masterplan in sub-Saharan Africa.
 
French city Bordeaux was in Cannes promoting its Brazza district project to build 5,000 new homes and 130,000 sq m of office, leisure, hotel and retail development. While Russia’s Regions Group brought its Dream Island entertainment and retail complex located south of Moscow on a 100 hectare site.

One of the more intriguing development projects launched at MIPIM was Vignole Island in the northern part of the Venice Lagoon. Controlled by Italy’s Ministry of Defence, the 200,000 sq m site will be offered to developers under 50-year concessions to develop hotel and leisure facilities.

“The diversity of projects presented at MIPIM from all around the world is breathtaking,” said Filippo Rean, Director of Reed MIDEM’s Real Estate Division. “Whether in office developments, retail, logistics, hotel and tourism or residential, the opportunities for investors to strengthen or diversify their portfolios are huge.”

Five years after introducing tech innovation as a part of MIPIM, the MIPIM Innovation Forum moved to the centre of the exhibition hall to host 70 exhibitors across 1,500m². And investment in real estate-related technology was the subject of lengthy discussions as institutional investors sat together at this year’s RE-Invest Summit.

Tech companies competing in the MIPIM Startup Competition demonstrated the wide range of ways the tech industry is moving into real estate. New York’s Envelope won the ‘Cities’ category with its 3D urban map-based software allowing real estate companies to visualise, analyse and run scenarios on development potential under zoning constraints. In the ‘Transaction’ category, London-based Storefront took top prize. Storefront reports to be the world’s largest specialist in short-term retail for pop-up stores, shopping malls and showrooms. Final winner of the Startup Competition was Ravti in the ‘Building’ category. The US company produces software that tracks, manages and procures heating, ventilation and air-conditioning for CRE owners and operators.

“When tech elements were introduced to MIPIM some people were slightly bemused. Today, crowdfunding, big data, virtual reality, the internet of things, smart cities and smart buildings are part of the world of real estate. The growing influence of tech companies on the property sector has encouraged Reed MIDEM to launch the MIPIM PropTech Summit in New York on October 11, 2017, in partnership with MetaProp NYC,” said MIPIM Director Ronan Vaspart.

Upcoming MIPIM events include MIPIM PropTech Summit in New York, October 11, 2017; MIPIM UK in London’s Olympia, October 18-19, 2017 and the MIPIM Asia Summit in Hong Kong, 28-29 November, 2017.
MIPIM 2018 will take place on 13-16 March in Cannes.



The CHAMBON wins « Best Refurbished Building »


at the MIPIM Awards 2017, confirming IMMOBEL’s expertise in special urban renovation.


A place where past and future coexist in perfect harmony.


The historic Chambon complex won the award for Best Refurbished Building at the MIPIM Awards 2017 in Cannes on 16 March. The former headquarters of the Caisse Générale d’Epargne et de Retraite (CGER), located right in the centre of Brussels (500 metres from the GrandPlace), has been fully renovated to respond to the growing demand for highquality accommodation in the heart of the capital of Europe.


The Chambon building complex, named after the FrancoBelgian architect who designed the sites famous art deco Ushaped building, is a collection of multiple buildings, some of which are architectural wonders while others are newly built. The complex has been seamlessly renovated, with a view to sustainability and versatility. While 60% of the Chambon consists of accommodation, studios, luxury apartments, investment properties and student rooms, it also contains office areas, shops and two hotels.


The developer IMMOBEL and the architects A2RC and JaspersEyers have given this emblematic complex the former headquarters of the CGER dates from 1889 – a new lease on life, creating a complex that is a great place to live and work, which also features a large green space that can be accessed by occupants and local residents.


Marnix Galle, executive chairman of IMMOBEL, “thanks the jury and everyone who voted for the Chambon renovation. The centre of Brussels is becoming an increasingly popular place to live. We need to offer people highquality apartments, which are sustainable and which respect the historical fabric of the city. We are especially pleased that this aim was taken into account by the jury and voters.”


According to JeanMichel Jaspers (JaspersEyers), Michel Verliefden and Brigitte DHelft (A2RC), this award is the result of teamwork. It is also a recognition of our expertise. IMMOBEL asked us to give the Chambon a new purpose in the city. In our eyes, this MIPIM Award is proof that we have fulfilled our mission.”
REED MIDEM AND METAPROP NYC ANNOUNCE ANNUAL MIPIM PROPTECH SUMMIT
IN NEW YORK CITY

Cannes/New York, 15 March, 2017 - Reed MIDEM and MetaProp NYC have announced the launch of the industry-wide Annual MIPIM PROPTECH SUMMIT and MIPIM Startup Competition in New York City on October 11.

MUSEUM OF TOMORROW NOMINATED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL MIPIM AWARD AS MOST INNOVATIVE GREEN BUILDING
The building's unique characteristics include the use of solar energy and the recycling of water from Guanabara Bay in the cooling system
The winners will be announced on March 16
Designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the museum optimizes natural resources in the region

The Museum of Tomorrow is the first Brazilian museum to be shortlisted for the International MIPIM Awards in the category "Most Innovative Green Building”. A landmark of the revitalization of Rio de Janeiro's Port Region, the museum boasts a number of green features, including special technology to capture solar energy and the use of cold water pumped from the depths of Guanabara Bay to operate the air conditioning system. The winners of the awards’ 2017 edition will be announced at a ceremony on March 16 in Cannes, France.
Created in 1991, the MIPIM Awards is an international competition that selects the most remarkable projects already built or under construction worldwide. The award ceremony takes place during the MIPIM trade fair, the largest event for the real estate market in the world. During the MIPIM trade fair, participants can vote in the Awards Gallery for their favorite project in each category. The participants’ vote represents 50% of the total score, and will be added to the jury’s vote. The award ceremony will be held at the Palais des Festivals (which also hosts the Cannes Film Festival).
The MIPIM Awards 2017 has shortlisted projects from 22 countries in 11 categories, with four finalists per category. The Museum of Tomorrow is competing in the category "Most Innovative Green Building” with the Siemens headquarters in Munich; the residential building 119 Ebury Street, in London; and the Värtan Bioenergy CHP-plant in Stockholm.
“The mission of the Museum of Tomorrow is to engage visitors in building a tomorrow based on the ethics of coexistence and sustainability. Therefore, we adopted sustainability measures from the very start of its construction,” explains Hugo Barreto, secretary general of the Roberto Marinho Foundation, the organization responsible for developing the Museum of Tomorrow.
In 2016, the sustainable guidelines of the Museum of Tomorrow were also recognized with the Gold Seal LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), awarded by the Green Building Council - the main American institution for certifying green buildings. This was the first museum in Brazil to achieve the second highest level of classification – there are four: certified, silver, gold and platinum.
To obtain the LEED certification, the project and its construction were monitored by the Casa do Futuro (House of the Future), a consulting firm specialized in sustainability and new technologies in buildings.
Water savings of 9.6 million liters per year
The Museum of Tomorrow features sustainable architecture that interacts with its content. Designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the museum optimizes the natural resources in the region. Some of the building’s unique green characteristics include special technology to capture solar energy and the recycling of cold water from Guanabara Bay for the air conditioning system. Every year the museum saves an estimated 9.6 million liters of water and 2,400 megawatts/hour (MWh) of electricity, enough to power more than 1,200 homes.
Water from the bay is captured by the museum and used for two purposes: to fill the reflective pools and feed the cooling system, which uses a heat exchange system. After the water is filtered and used to cool the Museum, it is returned to the ocean. The water used in the sinks, toilets, showers and rain water is also treated and reused, including the water generated by the dehumidification of air (the 'drip' from the air conditioning) - which can yield up to 4,000 liters of water per day.
Part of the energy used in the building is generated by solar power: large steel structures (the “wings”) installed on the mobile roof serve as a basis for the solar panels. Throughout the day, the wings move to follow the position of the sun. The museum design also maximizes the entry of natural light. The landscaping project designed by the Burle Marx landscaping firm includes native species that require little water and showcase the typical vegetation of the city's coastal area - the gardens measure over 5,500 square meters.
Waste management during construction
Since the start of the museum’s construction, various measures have been adopted to promote environmental sustainability. Procedures include the reduction and proper recycling of waste – for example, leftovers of the foundation piles were also used in building the sheds used during construction. This saved tons of steel. The selection of construction materials also followed environmental standards, prioritizing materials with recycled components, low toxicity, high durability and produced close to the site, in addition to the use of FSC certified wood.
The construction of the Museum is part of a series of projects of the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro City, carried out by the Consortium Porto Novo, through the largest public-private partnership (PPP) in Brazil. 

The Museum of Tomorrow is an initiative of the City of Rio de Janeiro, created and developed in conjunction with the Roberto Marinho Foundation, an institution associated with the Grupo Globo, Master Sponsor Banco Santander and sponsor Shell. Other sponsors include Engie, IBM and IRB Brasil Resseguros and the Grupo Globo is a strategic partner. The museum is also supported by the State Government, through the State Secretary for the Environment, and the Federal Government, through the Finep program and the Federal Law of Cultural Incentive. The institution is part of a network of museums of the Municipal Department of Culture. The Instituto de Desenvolvimento de Gestão is the organization responsible for managing the Museum.

Hungarian Megaproject: the European Nominee for the MIPIM Grand Prize


The Hungarian capital will be among the most expected exhibitors of MIPIM 2017, the European property industry’s main international exhibition and fair. A co-exhibitor of the Hungarian stand, the Liget Budapest project has already earned the international recognition of the global real estate community, since it made it to the ‘MIPIM Awards 2017 Finalists’. The world-class preparation of Liget Budapest is hallmarked by the fact that Japanese star architect Sou Fujimoto will represent the Hungarian development at the event. Alongside the most significant project, over twenty property industry participants will be represented. Among the exhibitors an unusual and truly spectacular party is ‘FINA Budapest 2017’, the organizer of the Water World Championship taking place in the Hungarian capital this August. During MIPIM, the design concept of high-volume sports facilities and other developments related to the World Championship will be presented, together with already completed phases. The Municipality of Budapest, the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA), IFK (the Hungarian Property Developers’ Roundtable Association), and the most significant consultants, analysts and legal representatives of the industry will also participate. During the 4 days of the event (14-17 March), over 100 conference programs and lectures will take place, with the participation of more than 50 cities and more than 2,600 exhibitors.


Europe’s ‘Best Futura Mega Project’: Liget Budapest


The Liget Budapest project is a unique development plan of the nearly 200-year-old Városliget, located in the heart of Budapest. Its objective is for Városliget – the cultural leisure park of Budapest – to become a green, liveable, modern part of the city, and at the same time to be an attractive touristic spot. This exceptional development is now among the finalists of the MIPIM Awards in the ‘Best Futura Mega Project’ category along with Japanese, a Brazilian and a Russian fellow competitor awaiting the jury’s decision in March. The current ‘shortlist’ status is already a remarkable recognition, with the project being the only nominee from the EU recognized among the top four. 214 nominations from 46 different counties were received in various categories for the renowned MIPIM Awards prize that is the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars.


The project, once completed, will be a world-class, complex, family friendly cultural and leisure facility comprised of both restored and new museums, a theatre built for children and youth, an expanded 150-year-old ZOO, and a city park that is greener and more attractive than now, providing numerous new recreational opportunities. The development is realized with the participation of star architect studios such as SANAA and Sou Fujimoto Architects. 


„It is a remarkable success that the Liget Budapest project is among the world’s four best projects in its category.” – said László Baán, the Ministerial Commissioner who is officially in charge of the investment. He believes that the development, besides its complexity built on the foundations of the nearly 200-year-old traditions of using the area, grabbed the attention of the international jury with its individuality, the quality of the plans, its sustainable features and the financial return of the investment. This year is a milestone in the history of the project. After six years of preparatory work, the construction works will start this year, as well as the rehabilitation of the green areas. According to plans, in 3 years Budapest residents will have world-class institutions in a greener and more attractive city park that had been renewed in all aspects.


Sou Fujimoto Japanese star architect in Budapest


Sou Fujimoto’s name does not need to be introduced. He is the world-famous Japanese designer that the Wall Street Journal named ‘the world’s most creative architect in 2014’. The highly recognized expert will be at MIPIM with the Liget Budapest Project. He will hold industry presentations and lectures, and participate in panel discussions. In June 2015 the star architect signed an agreement to design the House of Hungarian Music, which is also being realized as part of the project, thus his name became one of the trademarks of the entire development. Sou Fujimoto – who is only in his early forties – has been the winner of several architectural and arts installation competitions from Japan through London and Miami. Among Sou Fujimoto’s most renowned works is the “Eiffel-tower of Asia” in Taiwan. He is famous and recognized for his light, airy, nature-inspired and inspirational buildings worldwide.


Breathtaking sports facilities and event venues of the Water World Championship


Among exhibitors from Budapest, a real curiosity, ‘FINA Budapest 2017’ (the organizer of the Water World Championship taking place this August) will be introduced. During the event, they will give an insight into the concept of the developments to be completed by the World Championship in August, and also introduce plans already implemented. The central venue of the sports competition (Duna Aréna) was already completed in February 2017. It can host 12,000 participants. Besides the central venue, a series of event and competition venues with breathtaking features will be completed within the next few months. An enormous diving tower – facing the Hungarian Parliament building – is being built on a section of the river Danube. The ice rink of Városliget will transform into the competition venue of synchronized swimming for FINA 2017. In addition to new developments, construction works are also carried out to modernize and develop already existing sports facilities, including the complete rehabilitation of Margaret Island (Margitsziget). Besides venues in Budapest, other parts of the country will also host competitions, such as Balatonfüred where the open-water swimming competition will take place. Visitors of MIPIM will get first-hand information about all the above listed developments.


The most important property industry players of Hungary will exhibit together


The Municipality of Budapest will be represented at the stand, as well as the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA). HIPA is a national investment promotion organisation governed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary. The Agency is specialized in investment promotion activities that have a defining role in the program of the Hungarian stand this year. Representing 12 property market participants at the event, HIPA will introduce developments of outstanding quality both from Budapest and the countryside. ”Beyond promoting the Hungarian investment environment, our aim is to call the attention of  the most significant industrial sectors to the dynamically expanding Hungarian property market, as well as to the promising property development investments that have serious realization potential.” – said István Papp, Vice-President for Business Development at HIPA, reflecting on the event. IFK – the Hungarian Property Developers’ Roundtable Association representing 19 leading property development companies – will also co-exhibit at the stand. Atenor, Futureal, Gránit-Pólus, Horizon Development, Immochan, InfoGroup, Inpark - NIPÜF (National Industrial Park Operating and Development ), Hungarian National Trading House, Wing and SymbioLight will showcase their projects at the stand. Further partners and participants of the event are the International Law Firm Bird & Bird, CBRE, as well as Lohn.



Introducing the Original Co-Working Space

The City of London Corporation will launch a campaign at MIPIM tomorrow to improve, strengthen and update perceptions of the City. The campaign will show that the Square Mile is one of the world’s most exciting places to work and base a business.

The campaign will be supported by a prospectus presenting the Square Mile, themed: The City of London – the Original Co-Working Space. This plays on the City’s history of ‘coffee houses’ dating back to the 1600s, which gave rise to today’s Lloyd’s Market, alongside the growing sectoral diversity in the district and the current trend of shared workspaces.

The prospectus will be available at MIPIM from 9am on Tuesday 14th March on the City of London Stand, within the London Stand (C 15). Alongside the prospectus delegates are invited to pick up the accompanying Tech X The City report which examines the fast-expanding City tech sector and how to further accelerate it.

The prospectus showcases the true diversity of the City and its unique mix of the ultra contemporary and authentic history. For example, the Square Mile has the highest concentration of Platinum-rated WiredScore buildings and some 1.25 million sq m of new grade A office space under construction. Combined with 600 listed buildings and over 200 gardens, churchyards, parks and piazzas, the City is a truly unique business district.

Well-known personalities and brands based in the City are featured in the prospectus, including:

·         Sharon Ament, Director, Museum of London
·         Stella Ioannou, Co-Director, Sculpture in the City
·         Eugen Miropolski, Managing Director Europe & Israel, WeWork
·         Graham Stirk, Senior Partner, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners
·         Shirine Khoury-Haq, Chief Operating Officer, Lloyd’s of London
·         Jason Grist, CEO, Booking.com
·         Anne Richards, CEO, M&G Investments



The campaign’s key messages include:

·         The City has a healthy ‘ecosystem’ of businesses, most of which are not the large corporates you might expect: 98.5 per cent of businesses in the City are small to medium sized businesses (SMEs).

·         The City remains a large-scale ‘co-working’ environment, with 60%–70% of its SMEs trading with others in the Square Mile.

·         The City of London Corporation is working constantly to further enhance the built environment with measures including:

-          Improving the public realm – e.g. traffic restrictions at Bank Junction that will improve safety and enhance the space for pedestrians and cyclists
-          Encouraging contemporary workspaces – e.g. supporting the Innovation Warehouse, accommodating co-working hubs such as WeWork and Bathtub2Boardroom.
-          Granting planning permission for high-quality, innovative buildings – e.g. in 2016 the City Corporation granted planning for 309,000 sq m of grade A office space at 22 Bishopsgate, 1 Undershaft, 2-3 Finsbury Avenue and 60 London Wall*.
·         The City is becoming increasingly diverse in terms of sectors and its new occupiers defy the stereotypical City image: e.g. Lego, Deliveroo, Bloomberg, Booking.com, Skyscanner and Salesforce, as well as tech start-ups.

·         The City is one of the best connected global business destinations: The world’s largest centre for financial transactions, Europe’s largest insurance hub, extraordinary transport connectivity (five international airports less than an hour away), world-leading free and unlimited wifi network being installed this year.

·         Culture is a huge and vital part of the City’s offer: The City of London Corporation invests £80m every year in heritage and cultural activities of all kinds. It is the fourth largest funder of the arts in the UK and supports the Barbican, the Museum of London and the Guildhall School of Music, among other cultural institutions.

·         The City of London Corporation will enhance its cultural offer with its Cultural Hub plan to link the three major cultural assets via public realm development.

Two goals for SFS Group at MIPIM in Cannes: Meet French Developers and Expand throughout the European Market

Through its leading position as underwriting specialist in construction insurance in France, SFS Group is positioning itself to become the European reference in construction insurance for all steps of real estate projects: from signing a sale commitment to project hand-over. Thanks to its expertise and experience in the French market, SFS Group plans to present building insurance solutions at MIPIM to French developers and—with an eye toward business development—important European actors interested in customized offers.

SFS Group’s business is singularly focused on building insurance. Having operated in France since it was established in 2002, the company has adapted to a restrictive legal framework where building insurance is a necessity for construction professionals and general contractors. The company has provided more than 15,874 Structural Damage insurance contracts since it was established in 2002 and more than 925 Completion Guarantee Bond contracts since 2010.  Since the launch of the Planning Permission Bond, more than 2664 accomodations have been guaranteed .

SFS is specialized in building construction and relevant financial guarantees, making it an ideal interlocutor for real estate projects. It provides guarantees that fit any given issue for all key steps of the project.






Thanks to its underwriting agreements with reliable European insurance companies and with the contribution of its team of experts working every day to develop effective, high-performing solutions, SFS Group is able to respond to changing legislation and adapt its products to new French and foreign laws. One of its 2017 goals is to apply that unique expertise to the European level.



Frédéric Lamotte, Sales and Marketing Director of SFS Group, remarks: “MIPIM in Cannes is a wonderful opportunity for us to create relationships with people at all levels of development. The international dimension of the event will also let our teams meet industry professionals from the countries we’re interested in; namely, Turkey, Poland, Romania, Hungary, and Germany.”

Investor interest drives Innovation Forum centre stage at MIPIM 2017

Energy efficiency, crowdfunding and intelligent buildings to feature heavily at Cannes event


Paris, 18 January 2017 – Five years after introducing tech innovation as a component of MIPIM, the world’s property market is moving its Innovation Forum to the centre of its exhibition zone.
Organised by Reed MIDEM, a Reed Exhibitions subsidiary, MIPIM will be held in Cannes from 14 to 17 March, 2017.
Among the companies represented in the expanded Innovation Forum zone are energy solution providers, crowdfunding specialists and exhibitors focussing on intelligent buildings. Together, these companies are part of the growing ‘PropTech’ community.
In the first nine months of 2016*, industry data showed that real estate tech companies have raised $2.1 billion across 167 deals.
When we first introduced the tech startup community to the real estate sector at MIPIM 2012, PropTech was a relatively new concept. Now innovation has become a major topic at MIPIM. This is reflected by our decision to move the Innovation Forum to the centre of the Palais des Festivals, at the heart of MIPIM. Real estate professionals want to discover the latest technology that can help them in their business and international investors are looking to develop and grow their investment portfolios in proptech,” says Filippo Rean, Head of the Real Estate Division at Reed MIDEM.
With more than 2,000 startups specialising in property worldwide in 2016, 92% of PropTech investors reckon they will match or increase their investment in 2017 according to a report from the US incubator MetaProp NYC, partner to the MIPIM Startup Competition.
The MIPIM Innovation Forum will host 60 exhibitors and a dedicated conference programme in a 1,500 sq. m area. Energy issues are a major topic for many companies, as reflected by the presence of new attendees at MIPIM such as EMBIXE-nergy and ENGIE, offering solutions to communities, planners and developers interested in creating intelligent and ecological buildings or neighbourhoods.
Crowdfunding and intelligent buildings will also bring together a number of exhibitors at the MIPIM Innovation Forum, with companies such as Anaxago – a crowdfunding platform for startups and SMEs, FinalCAD – an application that digitalises building site monitoring, Siemens Building Technologies – which provides products and services for intelligent buildings, and Matterport – specialists in creating immersive 3D plans for viewing property projects.
Another first at the Innovation Forum is the creation of an Italian tech cluster (Copernico ilQi) in partnership with QI. This area, dedicated to Italian companies specialising in intelligent buildings and green architecture, will host Came and Gewiss (home automation) Italserramenti (windows and woodwork) Oikos (ecological paint) and Schindler Italy (lifts).
Technology integration in buildings or urban areas will also be on show on many MIPIM stands. For example, the French town of Chamrousse, will present its Life Size City project, which was a winner in an Industrial Demo for Sustainable Cities call for tenders. The idea is to transform the traditional ski resort into a new virtuous model, adapted to the challenges of ecological, climatic, energy and technology transitions. Chamrousse will be the first SmartStation to introduce a four-season mountain economy into a redesigned urban structure, closely linked to Grenoble’s valley-city vision.
The innovation highlight at this year’s MIPIM will be the finals of the MIPIM Startup Competition to be held on 15 March, 2017, when a winner will be chosen from the nine finalists. Launched last year, this international competition is for tech startups providing innovative solutions designed for the global real estate community and urban managers. These startups will present their solutions to investors, developers, media, analysts and other international industry experts. Finalists for this prestigious event will be drawn from entries at MIPIM in Cannes who join selected companies chosen last year at the MIPIM PropTech Summit in New York, MIPIM UK in London, and MIPIM Asia in Hong Kong.
The MIPIM PropTech Summit was launched in New York in partnership with MetaProp NY in October 2016. This exclusive event brought together property professionals as well as startups and representatives from New York city hall, so that participants could discuss the impact of technology on the property sector. The second edition of the PropTech Summit will be held in New York in October 2017.

Aedas projects win four 2016 MIPIM Asia Awards  

Aedas again withstood strong competitors from various Asian countries to win four 2016 MIPIM Asia Awards, including:

·       Gold Award, Best Office and Business Development – Sina Plaza, Beijing, China, designed by Global Board Director Ken Wai
·       Silver Award, Best Chinese Futura Mega Project -  Chongqing Xinhua Bookstore Group Jiefangbei Book City Mixed-use Project, Chongqing, China, designed by Global Board Director Andy Wen
·       Bronze Award, Best Futura Project - Taipei European School European Secondary Campus Redevelopment, Taipei, Taiwan, designed by Global Board Director Andy Wen
·       Bronze Award, Best Chinese Futura Project – Qingdao Chengyang Cultural Arts and Sports Center, Qingdao, China

Sina Plaza, the principal office for Nasdaq-listed SINA Corporation in China, reflects the infinity symbol ‘∞’ to express the concept of ‘limitless’ – as advances in media technology and information flow have opened up unlimited opportunities in the digital world.  Drawing from the Chinese architectural heritage of courtyards, the building frames two major open courtyard gardens for the users. At the intersection or centre of the building is the main entrance and a focal point – the ‘Eye of Sina’ – an atrium space that serves as the main vertical circulation hub and features a 12-metre high conical media screen which displays current media information by Sina.com and Weibo.

Chongqing Xinhua Bookstore Group Jiefangbei Book City Mixed-use Project is a dynamic complex that encompasses a sky cultural plaza, retail shops, apartments, offices and a boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Chongqing. The design drew inspirations from an ancient Chinese prose ‘Knowledge brings wealth’ to integrate book with the cultural elements of Chongqing, creating an interactive commercial complex with Xinhua Bookstore sitting at the core of the podium.

Located in the beautiful Yangmingshan and adjacent to the famous Taipei Hwa Kang Art School, the design of Taipei European School European Secondary Campus Redevelopment takes into account local climatic conditions and draws its inspiration from traditional book cases used in China for book collection by creating a series of ‘shells’ on elevation. At the same time, the design maximises natural light and provides shading to the functional spaces while greatly reducing a reliance on artificial lighting and air conditioning.

Qingdao Chengyang Cultural Arts and Sports Center combines a theatre, museum, archive and sports venue in a holistic manner. The shape of the building is similar to a cut diamond, which the numerous changes in dimension reflect the colourful urban life of Chengyang. The façade uses Qingdao’s local stones to form a texture that is rich in geographical features.


The MIPIM Asia Awards recognise the property industry’s best and brightest, rewarding innovation and achievement in a variety of fields.

Chengdu City Music Hall wins World Architecture Festival Award  

Designed by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas, Chengdu City Music Hall in China is the winner of the Competition Entries - Future Projects category at World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards 2016. 


Located at the Wuhou district in Chengdu, China, the Chengdu City Music Hall complex balances cultural components within a dense urban environment disconnected from its traditional connection to nature. The traditional Chinese landscape paintings or shan shui paintings – ‘shan’ refers to mountain and ‘shui’ to river – are evolved from the surrounding Sichuan landscapes.  The use of positive and negative spaces in this art form portrays an interesting balance between the physical and the ephemeral. These relationships were explored in how to balance the ‘imagined’ creations of the performance venues and school of arts with the ‘tangibles’ of the buildings which contain them.

The physical line between the tangible and the ephemeral was celebrated as a stepped public series of connected terraces. Beneath these terraces are the varying volumes of venues below.  Above these terraces are topographic bamboo gardens which provide an impression of the surrounding mountains. These accessible terraces step from the tall dense urban fabric towards the west and down to the more human scale pedestrian district to the east.  The eastern edge is defined by an informal plaza which connects the project to the river and the arts district through the pedestrian ‘Music Avenue’. This design was a shortlisted competition entry.

WAF Awards is the largest global award programme and conference dedicated to sharing and celebrating the latest in architectural achievements.

BIG & HYPERLOOP ONE REVEAL JOINT VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF MOBILITYBIG-Bjarke Ingels Group unveils the design for autonomous transportation system and the world’s first Hyperloop pods and portals in Dubai, UAE just as Hyperloop One inks major deal with Dubai Roads and Transport Authority.
Hyperloop One has partnered with BIG on a detailed feasibility study financed by the RTA. Since May 2016, the team has been working on a concept for autonomous transportation in the UAE, including designs for the world’s first Hyperloop One Portals and Hyperloop One Pods that take passengers from downtown Dubai to downtown Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes, instead of a two-hour drive.
"Together with BIG, we have worked on a seamless experience that starts the moment you think about being somewhere – not going somewhere,” said Josh Giegel, President of Engineering, Hyperloop One. “We don’t sell cars, boats, trains, or planes. We sell time.”The design is based on a study of how an urban and inter-city transport network should integrate with existing infrastructure. Hyperloop is autonomous, point-to-point and vastly simplifies the experience of getting from front-door to final destination. The locations of the initial route in the UAE are selected by passenger density and proximity to existing or planned transportation hubs. All of the portals are designed as individual answers to different contexts, yet appear similar and easily recognizable.With Hyperloop One we have given form to a mobility ecosystem of pods and portals, where the waiting hall has vanished along with waiting itself. Hyperloop One combines collective commuting with individual freedom at near supersonic speed. We are heading for a future where our mental map of the city is completely reconfigured, as our habitual understanding of distance and proximity – time and space – is warped by this virgin form of travel.” Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG.All elements of the travel experience are designed to increase convenience and reduce interruptions. The main objective of the design is to eliminate waiting from the passenger experience. Hence, the stations are called portals. All departure gates are immediately visible upon entering the portal, and a simple numbering system allows passengers to quickly identify them. Passengers will travel in pods that have room for 6 people. The pods are contained within a transporter, a pressure vessel attached to a chassis for levitation and propulsion that can accelerate the transporter to 1,100km/h.
“Hyperloop is about creating a love for the new possibilities out there. With Hyperloop, city planning can happen far from the city centers as physical distances are virtually eliminated,” BIG Partner and Head of BIG Ideas Jakob Lange added. “And we are not waiting for new technology to realize it. We have everything we need. “

Passengers board the next pod that is available, which moves onto a transporter to their final destination. The relatively small unit-size of the pods paired with a high arrival- and departure-rate allows for on-demand travel. Different interior environments and seating arrangements offer passengers a travel experience tailored to their needs, whether travelling solo or in groups, for business meetings or casual trips.

The pods operate autonomously from the transporter, which means they are not limited to the portal area and can move on regular roads and pick up passengers at any point. At portals, pods are loaded onto the transporter and hyperjump to another portal, where they merge onto the street and drop passengers off at their final destination.
About BIG
BIG is a Copenhagen and New York-based group of architects, designers, builders, and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, interior design, landscape design, product design, research and development. The office is currently involved in a large number of projects throughout Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Other projects include Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, 2 World Trade Center in NYC and a flood protection system around Lower Manhattan.
About Hyperloop One
Hyperloop One is reinventing transportation by developing the world’s first Hyperloop, an integrated structure to move passengers and cargo between two points immediately, safely, efficiently and sustainably. The Hyperloop team has the world’s leading experts in engineering, technology and transport project delivery, working in tandem with global partners and investors to make Hyperloop a reality, now. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the company is led by CEO Rob Lloyd and co-founded by Executive Chairman Shervin Pishevar and President of Engineering Josh Giegel.

MIPIM 2017: The New Deal - How can the property industry adapt? 
 Opening speech by Parag Khanna, specialist in connectivity

Paris, 3 November, 2016 - A technology revolution, geopolitical instability and societal changes are sweeping through the business world. As a result, property professionals are facing new challenges that drive them to understand their business differently. This "New Deal" is to be the central theme of the 28th edition of MIPIM. 

Organised by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, MIPIM, the world’s property market, will be held in Cannes from 14 to 17 March 2017.

"As a precursor of new trends, MIPIM gave pride of place in 2014 to the digital technology revolution, which is disrupting the global economy because it has accelerated all the changes we are witnessing today. We want to put this profound transformation centre-stage in discussions at MIPIM by choosing the New Deal as the leading theme of this 28th edition," says Filippo Rean, Director of the Property Division at Reed MIDEM.

According to the UN, 54% of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas, and by 2050, this figure should reach 66%*. Today, cities have become economic and demographic hubs with a global reach, sometimes surpassing the nation to which they belong. These new world cities are generating geopolitical changes that have an impact on the global economy, and also on the property industry.

Megacities, for example, are emerging at an exponential rate such as Lagos in Nigeria, the most populous city in Africa, and Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is drawing heavily on the Asian urban development model and recently signed a $15 million contract to develop a new master plan for the city**. For property professionals, the challenge will be to export their technology know-how and experience while adapting them to local customs. 

According to the global strategist Parag Khanna, an international relations expert and author of Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization, increasing connectivity is poised to push back national borders and give power to the connected people and organizations. 

Parag Khanna will present his vision to MIPIM attendees at the official opening ceremony on Tuesday, 14th of March. He will lay out the groundwork for the New Deal and highlight its implications for international real estate.

In addition to these elements of strategic thinking, the MIPIM conference programme will give attendees the means to turn ideas into action. 

Three new formats will be showcased in the conference programme: 
· Predictive scenarios where an expert will outline three possible futures around the same topical issue. Which will be the most likely scenario? Attendees will be able to vote at the beginning of the session. Will they have changed their minds by the end of the conference? 
· masterclass, where a key player from the property world or other sector, will talk about their career and share their experiences and successes with the audience. 
· Creative sessions (subscription only), which will enable participants to learn about new techniques for innovation and be coached on these issues to think about their jobs differently. 
Watch two exclusive videos: 
-Parag Khanna gives a foretaste of his opening speech 
-Filippo Rean introduces the theme of MIPIM 2017 from a technology angle

WAY OF LIVING IN İSTANBUL - AT MIPIM 2017 

İstanbul Chamber of Commerce is ready for MIPIM 2017: The brand new İstanbul Pavilion themed ‘two continents, one city’ will promote leading and high return projects in İstanbul and invite its visitors to come and enjoy the perks of the city as a local by joining the citizenship by real estate investment program. 

İstanbul, January 31, 2017- Representing 400,000 İstanbul based businesses, İstanbul Chamber of Commerce ICOC is all prepped up to bring a breath of fresh air to MIPIM-The World's Leading Property Market, to take place between March 14–17, 2017, in Cannes, France. 

İstanbul Real Estate Pavilion is located in the most prestigious sea shore strip of MIPIM, also hosting the financial capitals like Paris and London. Themed ‘Bosphorus’, the Pavilion will offer breathtaking views of the beautiful Bosphorus strait of İstanbul, connecting the two continents. 23,000 visitors from 90 countries will be mesmerized with the unique views from the city of İstanbul, bejeweled by a splendid selection of mega projects, and will have a chance to get first hand information and details. 

Follow your İstanbul Dream 
President of the İstanbul Chamber of Commerce, İbrahim Çağlar said: “We will explain to potential investors how the most profitable and attractive way of living in İstanbul is by purchasing real estate in the city. We will invite investors to İstanbul, to live the İstanbul Dream, in this beautiful city across two continents and the only city in the world with the sea streaming through it.” 

Turkish citizenship via USD 1 million investment 
İbrahim Çağlar highlighted that overseas buyers who spend USD 1million+ for property purchases in Turkey will be granted Turkish citizenship and added: “İstanbul continues to be a very attractive location for real estate investment thanks to the low price per m2 and offers many advantages. It is never too late to invest in İstanbul: A residential or commercial real estate purchase in İstanbul has dual return potential for the global investor – on one hand the significant return in capital gains and on the other the opportunity to obtain Turkish citizenship through your real estate purchase, by way of the recently effected legislation.”

With the enclosed malls and out-of-town retail, our streets became less populated and our cities are less connected. Large-scale retail is no longer a key to success. Competition from online retail, changing attitudes of shoppers with the wide use of online social networks and mobile apps as well as saturation of retail provision
in ‘homogenised’ shopping malls are all difficulties for physical retail to overcome. Physical retail is forced to change and provide a more inclusive and holistic community offer which can assist to solve problems of urban regeneration. As a retail architect, Aedas sees opportunity rather than a challenge to give new form and life to physical shopping.
“Malls must evolve from a palace of purchase to a palace of experience. Offline retail needs to pick up the strengths of e-commerce such as speed, flexibility and technology to reorientate to offer freshness, selection, convenience and value in new ways.” Chairman Keith Griffiths stated.
Malls will utilise online assets to re-establish in-store value. Integrated social and payment platforms including Wechat, ApplePay, Google wallet and Alipay accommodate large customer database for analytical and predictive use. Through free wifi in the mall and mobile-enabled sites, retailers are able to reach and easily promote themselves to the potential customer groups, especially the millennial generation. Malls will also be branded and build loyalty with customers in the same way as shops do, to offer prestige personal services and discounts.
Sensational experience is vital and unique for future shopping mall which cannot be replicated from online retail. Shopping mall with diverse programmes and cultural connections will serve as community hubs to fulfill social needs, create interesting circulation routes, bring a sense of place and build strong bonding with customers. The combination of internal arcades and external arcades to all retail floors creates double-frontage shops and outdoor terraces for 24-hour public social space.“Designing for the future of retail will give rise to new typologies and synergies, with street retail, hospitality, entertainment, exhibition, parks, technology and the surrounding environment all combined into porous and adaptable urban centres,” Retail expert and Executive Director Christine Lam said. “Physical retailing will become an integrated social and community function, creating a new lifestyle and a vibrant leisure destination to the new generation.”
In ancient Greece and Rome, a forum or agora was the heart of the community where people shopped, were entertained, relaxed, socialised, learnt, exchanged ideas and dined. People share similar needs despite our technological advances. The trend for successful future malls will have equal diversity. We await a modern agora.

As the first office building of the New Bailey Master Plan, the eight-storey One New Bailey provides predominantly office spaces of approximately 11,500 square metres. The building achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating.
The façade is a unique combination of Basaltite stone panels and glazed terracotta to match the listed colonnade and glazed curtain walling of the adjacent railway station. The distance between the natural stone and the glazing varies around the building, with parts of the glazing angled, creating tapered reveals in the coloured terracotta. An external terrace sits at the top of the building, above which features a bespoke overhanging brise soleil.

Involvement  Design and Project Architect
Gross Floor Area  153,980 sq m
Completion Year  2020
Directors  Andy Wen and Keith Griffiths
Chongqing Xinhua Bookstore Group Jiefangbei Book City Mixed-use Project is a dynamic complex that encompasses a sky cultural plaza, retails, apartments, offices and a boutique hotel in the Jiefangbei Central Business District, the heart of downtown Chongqing. Aedas draws design inspiration from an ancient Chinese prose ‘Knowledge brings wealth’ to integrate book with the cultural elements of Chongqing, creating an interactive commercial complex with Xinhua Bookstore sitting at the core of the podium.
The building unfolds stepping terraces in an elegant form of a rolling book scroll implying the spirit of wisdom and knowledge. The stepped architecture not only reveals the well known geographic beauty of Chongqing which is also named ‘Mountain City’, but also interacts with the surroundings and rejuvenates the city landscape.
Three distinctively themed plazas are well connected with the street and green terraces by a grand express escalator. The inclined rooftop and cultural plaza at the podium become a new cultural destination for lifestyle and entertainment activities, while the sky cultural plaza enriches and extends the civic space of Jiefangbei Plaza to provide a refreshing and tranquil environment in this business centre for users to relax and enjoy.
Project  Gmond International Building
Location  Shenzhen, PRC
Client  Shenzhen Gmond International Industry Co., Ltd
Involvement  Design and Project Architect
Gross Floor Area  60,000 sq m
Completion Year  2019
Director  Andy Wen
Gmond International Building is a representative regeneration project of the old town in Shenzhen. The project consists of three main functions including the headquarters for Tellus-Gmond, Grade-5A lettable office spaces and a jewellery trading centre. The well-facilitated transport hub brings enormous circulation to the complex generating excellent development potentials.
Architectural form of the 200-metre super high-rise drew inspiration from the Chinese traditional totem of ‘bamboo’ which symbolises prosperity and moral high ground. The ascending tower massing recaptures a growing bamboo, with a podium featuring exterior landscaped staircases, public platforms, eco-friendly rooftop gardens and an art centre as a jewellery exhibition venue. The podium façade expresses as large bamboo leaves to enclose the commercial component forming an interesting duet with the blooming tower.
Project  Shenzhen Luohu Friendship Trading Centre
Location  Shenzhen, PRC
Client  Shenzhen Friendship Trading Centre Co. Ltd
Involvement  Design Architect
Gross Floor Area  130,000 sq m
Completion Year  2020
Director  Wai Tang
Shenzhen Luohu Friendship Trading Centre is a redevelopment of a current department store to be transfigured into a new skyscraper with a 7-storey retail podium at the heart of Luohu in Shenzhen. The design creates a vibrant and porous podium by staggering up various retail boxes in dynamic and organic forms in response to the bustling surroundings, delivering a new sustainable and iconic design for the city.
Architectural form drew inspiration from nature and imitates a beautiful Calla Lily. The curtain wall wraps around the tower and resembles the elegant petals as the translucent podium rooftop. The generous petal roof brings natural daylight deep into the open-air, multiple-plane retail arcade and induces air flow current for natural ventilation.
The architecture integrates well with abundant green spaces to provide a healthy ecological ground. It features landscaped public spaces and terraces in the podium with giant leaves to provide shadings for leisure and activities. Green balconies extend from the podium along one of the tower’s edges, creating a true urban oasis in heart of the city.
Project  Zhuhai Holiday Resort Hotel Phase 1 & 2
Location  Zhuhai, PRC
Client  Zhuhai Jiuzhou Property Consultant Co.,Ltd
Involvement  Design Architect
Gross Floor Area  30,000 sq m (Phase 1),
                          142,700 sq m (Phase 2)
Completion Year  2018

               Andy Wen (Phase 2)
Zhuhai Holiday Resort Hotel is located in Xiangzhou District on the east of Zhuhai, near Macau and facing Hong Kong across the sea. This long-history hotel is also known as ‘The Garden within a garden’, which is named after Zhuhai, the ‘Garden City’. It is in close proximity to the well-developed road network connecting to the city centre and various transit hubs.
Phase 1’s main hotel building takes root in the resort forest and thrives around an artificial lake with the new commercial centre and health care centre like a flourishing tree.
Phase 2 consists of a 120-metre office tower, an 80-metre SOHO tower and a 4-storey podium retail street, with green public spaces linking all functional blocks. The conventional core of the office tower splits into two to bring daylight and natural ventilation, create a series of vertical garden and provide a green leisure communal space. Taking a similar move, the SOHO towers create a signature atrium space. An open retail street is designed in response to the local climate, drawing nature into the commercial environment and creating a true ‘garden within a garden’.
‘Think Tank’ provides a great opportunity for Aedas’ architects around the globe to exchange creative ideas through design workshop and dialogue

According to Colliers International's latest market research the Croatian real estate market experienced several significant investments in the retail, office and hotel and hospitality sectors in 2015.

According to the latest report by Cushman & Wakefield Q1 2016 saw a rapid growth in the supply of office space in Warsaw, which more than doubled the results for the same period in 2015. Due to the record-breaking levels of supply vacancy rates have increased by 1.9 pps to 14.1%. Although statistics show a fall in net absorption, this is probably a temporary decrease in the light of last year’s exceptionally high growth. Cushman & Wakefield expects the office market to continue its growth in the remaining months of 2016, with pipeline supply estimated at 330,000 sq m.
