INCUBA Next named "Property Project of the Year" at the AAREN Awards

We are proud to announce that INCUBA Next has won the "Real Estate Project of the Year" award at this year's AAREN Awards organised by Aarhus Real Estate Network. With a majority of votes, INCUBA Next was announced as the winner on 11 January at the AAREN kick-off 2024, which included professional presentations, an award show and a celebration of the real estate industry.

INCUBA Next was nominated for its focus on dynamic architecture and the fact that the project lifts Aarhus. It was emphasised that the project helps put Katrinebjerg on the Danish map in terms of creating a special digital innovation environment, which in the long run will benefit all parts of the country and future-proof Aarhus. INCUBA Next was also nominated for the building's great flexibility in architecture to customise and scale leases as needed.

INCUBA Next was nominated for the award along with two other spectacular property projects, Lighthouse and Nicolinehus, both on Aarhus Ø. The jury focussed on the fact that the nominees have each taken the lead in terms of architecture, sustainability, choice of materials and paving the way for future projects. It was also important to the jury that the nominees have given something back to the city in terms of community and city life, while also helping to put Aarhus on the Danish map.

"We are very honoured to receive this recognition. INCUBA Next represents not just a building, but a vibrant community for top-tech performers, where innovation thrives and future digital talents are given the optimal framework for development and growth. The entire project is the result of the work and efforts of many good people, a fantastic team, dedicated partners and the vibrant ecosystem we have managed to create together. Thank you to everyone for nominating, nominating and voting for INCUBA Next," says Mai Louise Agerskov, CEO of INCUBA.

INCUBA Next is a 22,000 square metre extension to INCUBA Katrinebjerg, which from October 2024 will house growth-oriented technology companies in the heart of the city's IT and innovation environment in Aarhus N.
