For The Medelan, DeA Capital Real Estate SGR received two prestigious "WORLD GOLD WINNER" awards during the gala evening of the 73rd edition of the FIABCI World Prix d'Excellence held last night in Miami, in the heritage and mixed-use development categories.

This is the first time in the history of the FIABCI Awards that an Italian project has won the Prix d'Excellence.

Founded in Paris in 1951, FIABCI is the global business networking organization for all real estate- associated professionals in 47 countries around the world.

The Medelan is the redevelopment project led by DeA Capital Real Estate, with PAREF as advisor, focusing on Palazzo Broggi on Piazza Cordusio – one of the best-known and most coveted trophy assets in the European real estate market, in the center of Milan's business district, just a few steps from the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and Teatro alla Scala.

The Medelan is composed of three blocks built in 1901,1903 and 1960, made up of three free-standing buildings connected to each other. The oldest is the former Credito Italiano building (1901, designed by architects Luigi Broggi and Cesare Nava), which runs along Via Tommaso Grossi with the Magazzini Contratti building (1903, Luigi Broggi). Of more recent construction (1960, Giovanni Muzio) is the wing of the building looking out onto Via Margherita that completes the 55,000-square-meter structure between Piazza Cordusio, Via Grossi, Via Santa Margherita, Via San Protaso and Via Porrone.

Today, The Medelan aims to be Milan's premier 24/7 lifestyle destination. The interior space design was conceived to make the buildings usable and lively at all times, with spaces dedicated to retail, office and leisure activities.

After a complex, thorough process of regeneration, designed by architect Stefano Boninsegna with Studio Genius Loci Architettura, with environmental sustainability and friendliness among its main focuses, it is now a new multipurpose building, a unique urban space, a contemporary urban masterpiece that has perfectly integrated the building's architectural and historical elements with innovation and the avant-garde.

The Medelan is LEED Platinum certified and WiredScore certified, whereas the WELL Silver certification process is underway.

Major brands have chosen The Medelan for their commercial spaces or as a home for their offices: Chanel, Barclays Bank Ireland PLC, Ferrari, F2i SGR, HSBC Continental Europe Italy, K L Gates Servizi S.r.l., Ludoil Energy, Palm Angels, Coin and Kave Home
