In a joint submission, Brindleyplace developers Argent Group and Birmingham City Council submitted the entry in May and were awarded special commendation at the DIFA Forum at the EXPO REAL commercial property show in Munich, held this week.
The DIFA competition has gained a reputation as a forum for forwardlooking solutions in the field of urban development as town planners in medium-sized towns and major cities increasingly focusing on the integrative effect of the quarter, making this type of project a symbol of sustainable urban development.
The Millennium Tower acquisition is the ideal investment for DIFA," said Metzler North America CEO Jim Neal.
Reinhard Kutscher noted as he explained the intended US expansion of DIFA.
According to Neal, Metzler-driven DIFA investments in the West will initially be made in California and Washington as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia.
Markborough's Managing Director, Kevin McGovern commented: "We are delighted to continue our association with DIFA which follows our sale of Royal Bank of Canada Centre to DIFA in August 1996.
Juergen Ehrlich, a member of DIFA's Executive Board of Directors said: "We believe the current market represents an ideal timing for a development project of this magnitude where DIFA is seeking to add further quality investments to their long term portfolio.
Ciocca, said "The Royal Bank of Canada Centre is a premier asset in the City of London and has found a good home with DIFA
