In addition to celebrating the country’s newly launched projects, the PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards in partnership with Shwe Property also served as an occasion to commemorate one of the nation’s most important landmarks. Anawmar Art Group won the new award of Best Heritage Renovated Property for its masterful redevelopment and restoration of the Secretariat Yangon, the former headquarters of the British colonial government in Myanmar.

The PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards in partnership with Shwe Property was also an opportunity to honour some of the country’s most progressive industrial projects. Pathein Industrial City by Ayeyarwaddy Development Public Co., Ltd. won Best Township Development while New East Dagon Industrial Estate by Dagon International Limited won Best Industrial Development. Myanmar Thilawa SEZ Holdings Public Company Limited won Best Housing Development (Myanmar) and Best Housing Development, both for the Gyogone Housing Redevelopment.

A clear winner in the Design category, Woodland X Bar by Factory to Home Company won Best Entertainment Interior Design, in addition to its win for Best Entertainment Development.

The PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards in partnership with Shwe Property marked a milestone this year. Win Win Tint, Group CEO of City Holdings Limited, received this year’s award for Myanmar Real Estate Personality of the Year – making her the first female recipient of this honour. The award-winning businesswoman grew City Holdings Limited from a family enterprise with a single supermarket in Yangon into the leading retail company in Myanmar.

The Real Estate Personality of the Year award is chosen every year by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report Magazine. It is the only award not decided by the independent judging panel.

The PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards in partnership with Shwe Property abided by health protocols and adopted a virtual format for its gala event and awards presentation. Leveraging the extensive platforms of PropertyGuru, Southeast Asia’s leading property technology company, and Shwe Property, the number one real estate portal in Myanmar, the historic virtual celebrations were broadcast on AsiaPropertyAwards.com and partner channels, extending the market reach of shortlisted companies and developments.
