A decade of celebrating Singapore’s highly esteemed real estate development and design achievements and innovations
The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) returns to commemorate its 10th year of honouring the best of the best in real estate with the first, contemporary virtual gala ceremony.
On October 30th, the event brought together the respected nominees, VIPS, and press, including a range of audience, from real estate agents to overseas developers, to witness the winners of the industry’s most prestigious awards.
As of November 12th, our virtual awards show secured a new record high of 41,900 viewers across the globe. The event broadcasted live, integrated with a live chat that allowed nominated developers, as well as property seekers, to easily communicate and congratulate one another through our social media platforms.
Approximately 40 awards were presented this year to leading developers, developments, and designs all over Singapore. Among that, GuocoLand took home the most illustrious award of the event, the Best Developer title, as well as six other category wins and three Highly Commended distinctions.
On top of that, Cheng Hsing Yao, Group Managing Director of GuocoLand proudly took home another spotlight of the night, the Singapore Real Estate Personality of the Year award, a special trophy only given by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report.
The editors mentioned, “having lived out 15 years of public service at the Urban Redevelopment Authority and Centre of Liveable Cities, our awardee knows the value of taking a holistic view of an entire district’s vibrancy rather than focusing on the standalone success of any project.
From the outset, our Singapore Real Estate Personality of the Year is a force to be reckoned with in the sphere of sustainability. At GuocoLand, he has helped the company’s developments keep abreast of, if not surpass, some of the world’s most exacting green building standards, from the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Awards to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifications.”
Our incredible hosts, Jack Prinya Ruenprapan and Chanita Craythome, fascinated the crowd and kept everyone on their feet throughout the whole 90-minute virtual ceremony.
The 10th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) wouldn’t have happened without the support from platinum sponsor Kohler; official portal partner PropertyGuru.com.sg; official magazine PropertyGuru Property Report; official PR partner Klareco Communications; media partner Archibazaar; official charity partner Right To Play; official ESG partner Baan Dek Foundation; and official supervisor BDO.
