Honouring the city-state’s best in real estate at the 11th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore)

More than 40 gold trophies celebrated the resilience of real estate leaders in the Lion City 

Alike other nations across the Asia-Pacific, Singapore has shown incredible resilience throughout the past two years of hardship. The real estate industry serves as a beacon of hope, and now is the time to celebrate the country’s best developers that continue to build a better future for the community.  

On November 19th, the 11th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore), presented by Kohler and supported by Mitsubishi Electric Asia Pte Ltd, hosted its second annual virtual gala celebration. The event honoured the achievements of the real estate sector and the city state’s greatest developers across 44 categories.  

The virtual gala has recorded over 5,500 viewers from all around the world, cheering for the nominees and developments they love most. In addition to anticipating the customary accolades, an all-new title was also included at this year’s ceremony, the Best WFH Development award. 

A total of 46 gold statuettes were presented at the 2021 edition of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore). Taking home the brand-new title was GuocoLand, who also won six other awards, including the prestigious Best Developer award for the second year in a row. Other winning developers include UOL Group Limited, a previous Best Developer titleholder, Aurum Land, CSC Land Group (Singapore) Pte Ltd, Fairview Developments Pte Ltd, Hoi Hup Realty Pte Ltd, and The Assembly Place.  

Another highlight at the 11th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) was the Real Estate Personality of the Year award. Selected solely by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report Magazine, Kain Sim, Co-Founder and Chairman of ZACD Group Ltd., received the trophy, celebrating three decades of achievement in international and Singapore property investment.  

Sim added: “The Real Estate Personality of the Year award is less about me than the company and vision I represent. I would like to thank Team ZACD for rallying behind me and the management as we navigate through both trials and tribulations in the past year. As an entrepreneur, I would say that the business is a means to an end and not an end in itself. We drive the business to achieve goals and deliver results to our partners and stakeholders.” 

The event wouldn’t be complete without Jack Prinya Ruenprapan and Kelly Jones-Purves, the masters of the night that kept the audience enraptured throughout the whole virtual gala.
