We are deeply pleased and honored to have received the award for the "Most Dynamic Mixed-Use Urban Hub" for our Timpuri Noi Square project, during Business Review's Realty Forum 2022. Timpuri Noi Square is for sure the most dynamic urban pole, which provides an interactive, friendly environment with a unique identity, includes working, leisure and living functions, integrated into a mixed-use environment, modern class A office complex, retail spaces & plaza, and as we always say: the place to be in the middle of the city! We are thankful for the entire Timpuri Noi Square team, that has shown relentless effort for this dynamic real estate project!
Sorin Macoveiu

We are honored by the award received at the Realty Forum as it is an important recognition of IMPACT's efforts to provide generations of anger with a better future through the development of sustainable communities.

YUNITY Park's recognition as Best Office Transformation Project honors us, at Genesis Property, and acknowledges our strategic journey towards sustainable and community-driven developments. YUNITY Park is our way of creating a business campus specifically tailored to people's lives at and beyond the office, addressing the complexity of the human nature with respect. This makes it more than just a real estate transformation project, but rather an experiential platform that will redesign how people will interact, collaborate, and socialize in the future, in a dynamic and flexible environment that is closely connected to nature.

Beatrice Dumitrascu
CEO Residential Sales, One United Properties
We are honored to receive this prize granted by Business Review, especially given that it reflects the direction we are taking in urban development, one that is focused on a sustainable future, a future of the people. The fact that four of the most prominent architectural offices in the world, the projects of whom are admired by many of us, and which are studied by architecture students worldwide, have made designs for a new development in Iasi for the first time in a contest in Romania, is a success not only for IULIUS, but also for the real estate market, and the way the cities of tomorrow are developing. We are very happy to have achieved this in a dialogue with the entire community. And we are happy to see this endeavor receiving recognition and appreciation as a prize in Realty Forum 2022.
Marius Perșenea
Chief Operating Officer at IULIUS
We are deeply honored to have received the award for “Best Net-Zero Carbon Office Project” presented by Business Review during the Realty Forum 2022, especially for a subject of such great importance for us all at Skanska – the Net Zero Carbon Building certification, developed in collaboration with the Romania Green Building Council. Equilibrium 2 project obtained the preliminary certification, becoming the first in Central and Eastern Europe to attain it. We want to thank Business Review for this honor and, of course, our readers for creating such a great community, caring about sustainability and a greener future. This cannot happen as an individual effort, as a matter of fact, sustainability is the area where we can join our forces for a common goal - reduce our impact on climate change!
Manuela Ozdemir
Project Manager for Skanska’s operations in Romania
We are very honoured to have received the Best Technology Driven Office Building award for Globalworth Square, our ambitious project, designed as a business hub focused on sustainability, innovation, cutting-edge technologies and efficiency.
