The design work for phase one was carried out by RKW Architektur of Düsseldorf and Gdynia-based Kwadrat Studio Architektoniczne, while Warsaw studio Mąka Sojka Architekci is responsible for the design of phase two. The ​​55,000 sqm riverfront project has involved the restoration of historic granaries, the redevelopment of the marina, the reconstruction of Stągiewny bridge into a drawbridge, together with contemporary residential and hotel development and public space.

The Irina Viner-Usmanova Rhythmic Gymnastics Palace in Moscow, developed by USM Development and designed by sTPO Pride, was chosen as the best cultural and sports infrastructure project.

Elektrownia Powiśle in Warsaw, developed by Tristan Capital Partners and White Star Real Estate and designed by the APA Wojciechowski studio, was also shortlisted in the best office project category.
