Tan Zhiyong, the chief executive officer of MCC Singapore, today rose to the prestigious title of Singapore Real Estate Personality of the Year during the presentation of the 13th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore).

The glamorous ceremony recognised an individual who has done so much for the city-state’s infrastructural and built environment over the past decades.

The editorial team of Property Report, the official magazine of the Awards, had chosen Tan to receive the title for his outsized contributions to the real estate, construction, and infrastructure sectors in Singapore.

“I am proud to be conferred the Real Estate Personality of the Year award and I would like to thank PropertyGuru for this accolade,” said Tan. “It is my privilege to be inducted in the hall of fame for this category.”

With projects like One Bernam, The Landmark, and Provence Residence, MCC Singapore is poised to deliver a remarkable array of private and executive condominiums, totalling over 7,000 units upon completion.
