The celebration was held at The Ritz-Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta
The eighth edition of the PropertyGuru Indonesia Property Awards celebrated the achievements of the nation’s biggest real estate developers and designers in 56 categories.
The event, hosted by Sasha Lauder, garnered more than 56,000 views during the livestream, contributing to the event’s success.
Dinner put everyone in a festive mood as the meals served included beetroot cured ocean trout, basil avocado crema, and charred pepper lentils; pumpkin, beef bacon, miso soup, and herbed sour cream; beef tenderloin, mushroom pepper sauce, rosemary anna potatoes, and roasted vegetables; and for dessert: black and white forest cake, dark chocolate creme, white chocolate cherry ganache, and cherry confit.
Meanwhile, shortlisted nominees went head to head for the coveted Best Developer title, which was among the 56 awards given away that night. There were also expanded categories to recognise a wider range of real estate brands and finer niches in development.
Agung Sedayu Group emerged victorious as Best Developer, garnering four wins with Salim Group for their joint ventures Batavia PIK, Pantjoran PIK, Pasir Putih Residences, and PIK2 Sedayu Indo City. This was their third time winning the title, with the last time being in 2018.

It won Best Housing Development (Indonesia) for Enchanté Résidence @BSD City; Best Industrial Estate Development for GIIC @ Kota Deltamas, Sinar Mas Land’s project with Sojitz Corporation; and Best Boutique Developer for Sinar Mas Land’s joint venture with PT.
