Indonesia leads with 15 nominations, followed by Thailand and the Philippines with 12 nods each

More than 40 developers from eight ASEAN countries are vying for the Best of the Best honours at the 6th annual South East Asia Property Awards 2016, the much-awaited grand finale event of the prestigious Asia Property Awards series, presented by Hansgrohe and organised by PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading online property group.

Indonesia leads the nominations with 15 nods, with four going to Best Developer (Indonesia) winner PT Intiland Development Tbk, whose top-notch developments such as Serenia Hills and South Quartier have made an impact at last month’s Indonesia Property Awards. Likewise, PT Putragaya Wahana, the company behind the acclaimed luxury condo The Mansion at Le Parc project, is nominated in four categories.

MQDC Magnolia Quality Development Corporation, the Best Developer (Thailand) winner at the 11th Thailand Property Awards in September, is hoping to be named Winner again in four categories. The company’s multi-billion riverfront project – The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok – is up for one Development and one Design award. Another Chao Phraya-based project, AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel by three-time nominee Minor Hotels, received three nods.

Thailand is tied in second place with the Philippines with a total 12 nominations each. They are followed by Myanmar (with 10 finale entries), Vietnam (9), Malaysia (8), and Cambodia (4). A few more yet-to-be-revealed country winners will come from Singapore and announced on 24 November.

The Philippines’ biggest bet is SM Prime Holdings, Inc, the commercial development arm of the SM Group, with a total of four nominations, including two for Best Commercial Development (Philippines) winner SM Seaside City Mall Cebu, and another two for the ritzy Conrad Manila hotel.

Megaworld Corporation, which was declared Best Developer (Philippines) following an unprecedented four wins and 13 Highly Commended accolades at the 4th Philippines Property Awards last April, earned two grand finals nominations.

Developers with more than three finale nods include: Borey Peng Huoth Group and Shwe Taung Development Co., Ltd., the Best Developer winners in Cambodia and Myanmar, respectively; Myanmar’s Keppel Land, developer of the Sedona Hotel Yangon (Inya Wing) project; and Vietnam’s Acteam International Co Ltd (a company of the Centurion Global Group Singapore), which enters the grand finals with the impressive resort residences and villas project The Dàlat at 1200 Country Club & Private Estate.

The South East Asia Property Awards celebrates 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.

To date, more than 150 awards have been presented to the region’s finest real estate developers and developments. The country gala dinners, from Phnom Penh back in February all through Jakarta in early October, have welcomed more than 2,500 guests that included top government officials, global experts, senior industry figures and even royalty.

There are a total of 13 grand finale awards to be presented, including seven in the Design categories – a sign that the region’s design and architecture sectors are flourishing with multiple finalists from several countries. A new category for Best Boutique Developer (South East Asia) also debuts this year to reward niche and up-and-coming developers.

The shortlist of the South East Asia Property Awards has been announced today following a rigorous nomination and judging process that involved site visits by independent judging panels in each country to eligible projects. The whole process was strictly supervised by BDO, one of the world’s largest auditing and accountancy firms.

Presented by title sponsor Hansgrohe, the South East Asia Property Awards grand finale is part of the two-day event on 23-24 November at the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel Singapore. The entire event will have three parts: a two-day Property Report Congress Singapore, the high-level conference series of Asia’s industry leading Property Report magazine that will feature 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; and the South East Asia Property Awards grand finals immediately right after the Singapore awards. There will be international networking cocktails and lunches on both days, and a lavish, four-course gala dinner on the second day in between the two awards ceremonies.

“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, which celebrated its 11th annual gala dinner last September in Bangkok, attended by more than 600 industry-leading figures.

“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 adds. “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.”
