GLINT: COPRO and TPA win the European Property Award 2018/2019
Berlin, 29 October 2018 – COPRO has emerged as the winner of the European Property Award for the marketing concept around its Wilhelminian ensemble, GLINT. The developer devised the marketing concept in consultation with TPA Real Estate Brands GmbH and submitted it for consideration in the Development Marketing category.
More than 80 experts representing every corner of the real estate industry selected the prizewinners in almost 50 categories, evaluating each submission based on its design, quality, service, level of innovation, originality, and sustainability. The independent jury was impressed by the multichannel communication strategy for the Wilhelminian-era GLINT ensemble, which is located in the heart of Berlin, between the Brandenburg Gate and Gendarmenmarkt. “We are delighted that our careful combination of individual communication channels worked so well as an extraordinary unified concept that won over the jury,” says Marc F. Kimmich, CEO of COPRO AG.
Exceptional communications bring GLINT to life
The marketing behind GLINT comprises a number of component parts, including the GLINT book – a print publication that details the awakening of the slumbering Wilhelminian ensemble. Inspired by the elegance of the historic building it is designed to promote, the book was recently awarded the Red Dot Award in the Publishing & Print Media category. Add to this the unmistakable branding, high-quality gifts for potential buyers, elegant pictorial ads, and a 360° virtual tour to offer people an exclusive glimpse inside the building and a panoramic view of Berlin from GLINT’s attractive rooftop. “Together with COPRO, we have succeeded in developing exceptional communications in a range of media, each in tune with the idea behind GLINT. These communications breathe new life into this historic architectural jewel and bring it into the 21st century through outstanding attention to every detail. The tailor-made strategy has helped to share the GLINT concept across all media,” explains Lutz Grimm, Managing Director of TPA.
GLINT: embodying new values while preserving the old
The aim of the marketing activities was to awaken the charm of the Wilhelminian-era property known as GLINT long before its planned renovation in the following year. While paying close attention to the building’s history and working in close coordination with the Berlin Monument Authority, GLINT will be transformed into a spacious residential quarter with commercial and community spaces; a place where new values will find a home and old ones will live on. This merging process is reflected in the name and the GLINT logo. An apartment store was also opened in the property last year, granting visitors an initial glimpse of how the residential interiors will look once works are complete. The store also provides space for meetings with potential buyers as well as special events. “The bespoke communications strategy helps to narrate the transformation of this Wilhelminian ensemble as it emerges from decades of hibernation, sharing its captivating story across all media”, Kimmich explains.
