Celebrating the region’s ever-changing commercial retail real estate market, and reflecting its evolving nature, EuropaProperty’s sixth annual CEE Retail Real Estate Awards once again highlighted the continued enthusiasm for retail real estate in CEE by recognising a broad spectrum of winners for their continued market success. Retailers, real estate companies, projects and individuals were presented with awards of acknowledgment by the industry for their contribution to the development of the retail real estate market in the region for 2013. The awards, held last night at the 5-star Intercontinental Hotel Warsaw, brought together some 450 top real estate professionals from the major retail market sectors in the CEE region and were selected by an international academy of jurors, comprised of senior industry professionals, who presided and deliberated over the eventual winners, representing some of the best commercial retail real estate companies, retailers, projects and people operating in the CEE region for 2013. The 41-strong independent jury panel of the CEE Retail Real Estate Awards casted their votes for one winner in each category. The recently opened, TriGranit-developed and managed, Poznan City Center has won the most prominent prize in the retail project category. Poznan City Center opened its gates on 25th October 2013. The project has already proven to be a huge success – since the grand opening it welcomed more than 5 million visitors. Poznan City Center deservedly earned the recognition of the jury and won yet another prestigious award. Árpád Török, CEO of TriGranit Development Corporation, said: “The Retail Real Estate Awards are one of the most prestigious awards of the real estate development sector in Europe, where international market professionals appraise and evaluate a number of high profile projects. It is therefore a great honour for us that Poznan City Center’s huge success has been acknowledged and we have once again been recognised as one of the top industry leaders.” TriGranit Development Corporation closed an immensely successful year in 2013.
