“Showcasing outstanding design vision, intricate development concepts, and an applaud-worthy commitment to creating communities that inspire and thrive; Kien A Corporation is taking big, bold, and brilliant steps forward with world-class developments in Vietnam such as Lavila Nam Sai Gon Township and is a noteworthy award winner,” said the independent panel of judges.

New awardees this year included Gotec Land, GFS Group, Phuc Khang Corporation, HDMon Holdings, Him Lam Land, Xuan Mai Sai Gon and Maxland.

The only award not selected by the judges was the 2019 Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year, which was conferred to Gamuda Land Vietnam’s chairman Cheong Ho Kuan, was chosen to honour his exemplary leadership and benchmark-setting vision for award-winning, master-planned township projects Gamuda City in Hanoi and Celadon City in Ho Chi Minh City.

“I stand here tonight representing the Gamuda Vietnam team to accept this prestigious award as a culmination of the collective efforts of the Gamuda Vietnam team, without which I will not be standing on stage,” said Cheong Ho Kuan upon receiving his golden trophy from Jeremy Williams, PropertyGuru Group’s chief business officer and Interim CEO of Batdongsan.com.vn.
