At the international real estate show, Marché International des Professionels de l'Immobilier (MIPIM), the annual MIPIM awards were presented in five categories. The "real estate Oscar" in the Residential Developments category went to the Marco Polo Tower project company, a consortium made up of HOCHTIEF Projektentwicklung and DC Residential, for its residential development in Hamburg's HafenCity.
In addition, a special facade design reduces energy consumption inside the building. Using the design-ready concept, the apartments will be fitted out and furnished in keeping with the personal wishes of their owners. At the end of 2009, the Marco Polo Tower already received five stars at the European Residential Property Awards as the "Best high-rise development Germany". The 15 candidates for the MIPIM Awards were chosen from the selected applications in five categories. Trade visitors were asked to vote for their favorites during the MIPIM show.
