Finishing the year on a high, Browary Warszawskie has been named ‘the best in the world’ after topping the Best Urban Regeneration category at the MAPIC Awards.
Designed by JEMS Architecki for Echo Investment, the mixed use project beat off competition from French and Spanish entrants to finish top of its class.
Nicklas Lindberg, the president of Echo Investment, said: “We are proud that Browary Warszawskie has been recognized on the international arena. It’s confirmation that our idea of creating ‘destinations’ – large, city-forming projects that fit into the needs of cities and complement them – is in line with global urban and social trends.”
Lindberg added: “Browary Warszawskie is a perfect example of Echo Investment’s approach to responsible planning and building well-thought-out urban quarters. This award proves to us that Browary is a new showcase of the capital.”
Several years in the making, work on Browary began in 2016 and finished last year. Occupying 4.4 hectares of space, the investment saw the revival of a historic former brewery complex, with office space, residential units and acclaimed food and drink concepts all presented within.
