87 Companies Compete for 35 Sought-After Regional Titles


PropertyGuru, Southeast Asia’s leading property technology company, made history several times over with the airing of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final as a virtual gala event and awards ceremony. As well as being the first virtual edition of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final, the special broadcast marked the 15th edition of the prestigious, long-running real estate awards programme.

The 15th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final laurelled developers and projects from 14 property markets in Southeast Asia with highly coveted regional titles – elevating them above their peers as the “Best in Asia”.

Around 87 companies, representing distinguished country winners of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards series this year, competed for 35 accolades, including the never-before- presented regional Developer titles of Best Mixed Use Developer (Asia), Best Industrial Developer (Asia), Best Lifestyle Developer (Asia), Best Sustainable Developer (Asia), Best Commercial Developer (Asia) and Best Breakthrough Developer (Asia).

With three regional Developer awards, Singapore emerged as the most awarded country during the 15th edition of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final.

The 15th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final saw the presentation of the annual PropertyGuru Icon Award to Thippaporn Ahriyavraromp (Chearavanont), Chairman of Executive Committee, DTGO, Chairman of Executive Committee, MQDC and Chairman of Buddharaksa Foundation. Thippaporn Ahriyavraromp had been named Thailand Real Estate Personality of the Year in 2012 – the first woman to receive the title.

Australia, Malaysia and the Philippines also gained one regional title each. Paragon of Pyrmont by THIRDi Group in Australia was named Best Housing Development (Asia), besting nine projects in Southeast Asia and mainland China. Meanwhile, i-Park @ Senai Airport City in Johor, Malaysia by IPark Development Sdn. Bhd. in Malaysia was named Best Industrial Estate Development (Asia). From the Philippines, Agriya by Damosa Land, Inc. was judged the clear winner of the Best Residential Green Development (Asia) title.

“The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards started 15 years ago with an aim to, among others, create what’s next and celebrate success – a programme that provides a widely respected, highly trusted platform to showcase the achievements and innovations of developers across Asia Pacific. It is truly gratifying to see the programme persist with engaging, immersive, and interactive ways to broadcast the achievements of developers in these extraordinary times but also expand into exciting new markets outside Southeast Asia in its 15th year. We are also proud that the awards continue to inform residents of Asian countries of more choices of high-quality real estate – living up to our promise that everyone should have a place to call home,” said Hari V. Krishnan, CEO of PropertyGuru Group.
