Malaysia’s finest developers of the year will gather at the sixth annual edition of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia), presented by global brand Kohler, as the final shortlist is announced today after several months of rigourous nominations from the public, followed by supervised site inspections and judging deliberations by an independent panel of experts.

Making the cut are two former Best Developer winners, LBS Bina Group Bhd (2018) and Tropicana Corporation Berhad (2017). LBS earns nods for Best Mid End Condo/Apartment Development, Best Township Development (Klang Valley), and Best Mass Market Landed Development; while Tropicana collects two nominations for the Best Landed Development categories and one for Best Hotel Development.

Previous winners UEM Sunrise Berhad, MRCB Land, and Mah Sing Group Berhard return this year with multiple nominations. The competition also welcomes newcomers including boutique developer JKG Land Berhad, housing developer Emkay Group, and Venus Assets Sdn.
