Warsaw Spire, an office tower developed by Ghelamco Poland, was voted the best office project at this year’s MIPIM real estate exhibition in Cannes, France.

The only Polish submission for the MIPIM Awards 2017, the Warsaw Spire office tower is a flagship project by the Polish subsidiary of Ghelamco, a Belgian-based developer. Opened last year just west of Warsaw city center, the skyscraper beat competition from cities such as London and Rome. Ghelamco Group founder Paul Gheysens collected the main MIPIM prize for the Warsaw Spire at an awards ceremony in Cannes March 16.

The most prestigious event for the international real estate industry, the MIPIM exhibition has for 30 years brought together leading developers, contractors, investors, consultants and property market experts from around the world. They come to the French resort to share expertise, network and showcase their top projects.

Every year, the best new projects and designs compete for the event’s awards, and this year the most coveted of those went to Ghelamco Poland. The competition judges and MIPIM participants named the Warsaw Spire the Best Office & Business Development in the world, ahead of a total of 250 submissions from 44 countries.

Jeroen van der Toolen, the managing director at Ghelamco CEE, described the MIPIM Award 2017 for Ghelamco Poland as the “crowning achievement of the work put in the Warsaw Spire project by everyone involved” in it.

“I would very much like to thank all those who believed in our vision and invested their knowledge, time and hearts in the Warsaw Spire development,” van der Toolen said in Cannes. “The project has transformed Warsaw’s image and become a global symbol of new thinking about commercial construction.”

The 220-meter-tall skyscraper houses 109,000 square meters of office space, making it both the largest and tallest office building in Poland. The tower has redefined Warsaw’s cityscape, becoming an icon of its rapid growth. The building forms a whole with Plac Europejski (Europe Square), a new public space replacing a former industrial quarter.
