Ozone Homes was the winner of the Environmental, Social and Sustainability Award at the fourth annual CIJ Awards Romania which took place in Bucharest December, 8th at Athenee Palace Hilton in front of an audience of nearly 230 people. This moment also made public our partnership with Andreea Marin Banică towards supporting common projects and ideas in the ECO field.

Roberts Publishing Media Group has reacted to the increasing importance the investors and the end users are placing on environmental sustainability by introducing its own series of prizes, the ESSA Award, which is intended to recognize those projects that achieve a high level of environmental sustainability, as demonstrated in achieving various eco certificates. This year, apart of Avalon Residence by Ozone Homes, the ESSA Award was presented also to the following: Crystal Tower (Search Corporation), Platinum Business & Convention Center (Willbrook) and Swan Office & Technology Park (Chayton).

Although there were not as many projects completed this year as in 2010, there were more than enough quality schemes to justify an entertaining evening of food, drinks, music and prizes. The first of the accolades to be given out was in the Best Office Development. This year, it went to Crystal Tower, a project developed by Plaza Development and built by AMV Group Construct. The Best Small Office Development was created this year in order to provide a level playing ground for several schemes of less imposing size that were brought to market. From the short-listed contenders, however, the one that emerged as the winner was Romana Offices, a 2,400 sqm GLA boutique scheme spread over five floors that was developed by DPGS.

The Best New Shopping Center Development was won by Immofinanz for its 51,000 sqm Constanţa project called Maritimo Shopping Center. Given the nature of the completions this year in the retail sector, it was decided to give extensions and individual phases of projects a separate prize. With this in mind, the Best Retail Development Phase award was given to Baneasa Shopping City, by Baneasa Developments. The same company was soon called to the podium again to pick up the prize of Developer of the Year.

The Best Industrial/Logistics Development for 2011 was judged to have been Ploieşti Park by Alinso. The Personality of the Year Award for 2011 went for the first time in Romania to an individual with experience of winning the award. In fact, not only has Robert Neale (Portland Trust) won the prize in Romania in the past, but he has collected the prize in the Czech Republic as well. The other company-based awards were given out as follows:

  • Investor of the Year – NEPI
  • Law Firm of the Year – Tuca Zbarcea si Asociatii
  • Project Management Company of the Year – Vitalis Consulting
  • Property Management Company of the Year – DTZ Echinox
  • Retailer of the Year – H&M
  • Real Estate Agency of the Year – The Advisers/Knight Frank

Romania’s property sector accepted the CIJ Awards quickly when the event first began in 2008 and it has attracted an enthusiastic following ever since. This year was no exception, despite having suffered through what’s been a tough year of low demand and scarce financing.

Ozone Homes adopts a new approach of the real estate market by building homes which thoroughly respect the environmental standards. These entail significant cost savings for construction and maintenance. The houses are also following the European regulations and respect the legislation in force concerning environmental protection. The building of such houses reduces the negative impact on human health and energy consumption.
