This was the first entry to the awards from a foreign country. The biggest reason for the improvement in the Real Estate sector in TRNC was the Annan Plan in 2004 and the other major reasons were the arrival of foreign investors in 2015, the growth in the number of students, and some instances in Turkey."


As for Kibris Developments Director of Project Design and Marketing Division Harper, he pointed out some examples from the projects that they carried into effect and from marketing and its relationship with stories. Özbirim said in his speech:


 "We looked at the area of the project. We saw the Milos mills in Alsancak. They were in really bad shape and at the edge of falling into pieces. We thought that this might be our starting point and those mills became our story. Most of the trees at the area of the project were olive trees so we decided that olive trees would be our logo. Since it was going to be a project embedded in nature we used "Spirit of the Nature will live in your Home" as our slogan."
