Southeast Asia’s best developers and achievers brought honours and prestige to their respective countries as they competed for the regional titles at the sixth annual South East Asia Property Awards 2016 grand finale event of the prestigious Asia Property Awards series, presented by Hansgrohe and organised by PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading online property group.

Malaysia’s Sime Darby Property collected its first regional Best Developer (South East Asia) gong, beating other national winners from Cambodia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore.

According to the judges, the Best Developer (South East Asia) winner is an all-rounder with a long-term commitment in the Malaysian real estate industry. “Inheriting its legacy of excellence in plantation, one of the Sime Darby Group’s core businesses, Sime Darby Property is a prominent developer with a 40-year track record of developing sustainable communities and with expertise in property development, property investment and asset management. Given its significance and constant reinvention, Sime Darby Property is certainly an integral part of developing Malaysia’s history, and now Asia Property Awards history as the 2016 Best Developer (South East Asia).”

Accepting the region’s highest honour in real estate, Sime Darby Property’s managing director Dato’ Ir. Jauhari Hamidi commented: “The recognition of Sime Darby Property as the Best Developer not only in Malaysia, but in South East Asia by such esteemed industry experts is further testament of our commitment as a trusted developer. We are honoured to receive this award and our heartfelt appreciation goes to the organisers.”

Indonesia, which led the grand final nominations tally with 15 nods, ended up with two regional design awards for Sinar Mas Land and Intiland Development, the Best Developer (Indonesia) winners in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

MQDC Magnolia Quality Development Corporation, the Best Developer (Thailand) 2016, led the country’s regional winners, with one design award going to the company’s multi-billion riverfront project – The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. PACE Development’s acclaimed MahaSamutr country club and villa project in Hua Hin also won one of the evening’s biggest awards: the Best Villa/Housing Development (South East Asia) award, as well as Best Residential Architectural Design.

Two regional winners emerged from the Philippines, including a Special Recognition in Sustainable Design (South East Asia) for renowned green developer ArthaLand for its Bonifacio Global City-based ArthaLand Century Pacific Tower development.

Continuing its winning streak, Vietnam’s Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City by Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh Stadt Ltd followed up their triple victory at the Vietnam Property Awards with the Best Green Development (South East Asia) title.

Singapore’s Chiu Teng Group received another accolade as it was declared the regional winner in the new category for Best Boutique Developer (South East Asia). Singapore collected a total of two regional gongs.

Attended by 400 VIPs and senior industry figures from Phnom Penh to Jakarta, the South East Asia Property Awards celebrated the successes of all the country winners following more than a year’s journey that began with the launch of the inaugural Cambodia Property Awards in late 2015, when the 2016 South East Asia Property Awards edition began at the entry stage, until the Indonesia Property Awards 2016 held in Jakarta in October.

To date, nearly 190 awards have been presented to the region’s finest real estate developers and developments in 2016. The exclusive gala dinner ceremonies have welcomed about 3,000 guests that included top government officials, global experts, senior industry figures and even royalty, and members of the press.

Presented by title sponsor Hansgrohe, the South East Asia Property Awards grand finale was part of the two-day event on 23-24 November at the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel Singapore. The entire event was preceded by the two-day Property Report Congress Singapore, the high-level conference series of Asia’s industry leading Property Report magazine that featured insights from around 30 speakers including Winners and Judges of the Asia Property Awards; the South East Asia Property Awards (Singapore) ceremony in the early evening on the 24th.

The much-awaited grand finale event immediately followed the South East Asia Property Awards (Singapore) 2016 ceremony, which saw City Developments Ltd (CDL) crowned the Best Developer (Singapore).

“2016 has been a momentous year for the Asia Property Awards. Since starting 11 years ago the Awards have always endeavoured to reward the best in local real estate and produce credible winners with a transparent entry and judging system. We have achieved this goal by developing the most detailed and comprehensive entry system of any property awards in the world,” says Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of the Asia Property Awards.

“Southeast Asia’s property sector has come a long way in the last decade and we are proud to have been a part of that growth,” he added. “It’s been our privilege to work with all the developers who participated in each country over the years and we can’t wait to know who will win at the grand finals this year.”
