The 9th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) honours established and boutique real estate developers

Outstanding sustainable developments, smart buildings and co-working spaces gain special recognition

  • Forty-six awards presented including Best Heritage Development, Best Mega-Scale Condo Development, and Best Strata Housing Development
  • M+S chief executive Kemmy Tan recognised as ‘Real Estate Personality of the Year’ for her outstanding contributions to urban development
  • Top winners in Singapore will qualify for the 2019 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards regional grand final in November

SINGAPORE ­­–– 4 October 2019

The 9th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) gala dinner and awards presentation ceremony was held on Friday evening (4 October 2019) at the St. Regis Singapore, where a total of 45 awards were presented to recognise the country’s finest real estate developers, projects, and design.

UOL Group Limited emerged as the biggest winner of the evening, sweeping up 12 golden trophies including Best Developer, Best Condo Development (Singapore), and the special awards for CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), Sustainable Development, and Design and Construction.

“Through their outstanding properties, UOL Group epitomises what an exemplary developer is, whilst pushing the limits on design, experimenting and succeeding with interior and style possibilities and leading the way in architectural perfection,” said the independent panel of judges.

The prestigious programme also honoured Aurum Land (Pte) Ltd as Best Boutique Developer. The awards categories were expanded this year to 46 to include several new categories – Best Heritage Development (1953 by Oxley Holdings Ltd), Best Mega-Scale Condo Development (Parc Clematis by Sing-Haiyi Gold Pte Ltd), Best Strata Housing Development (Watercove by Bukit Sembawang Estates Limited) – to reflect growing trends in the Singapore real estate sector, as well as to recognise more quality projects in niche segments. The National Gallery was given the Special Recognition for Public Facility.

Real Estate Personality of the Year presented to another female recipient

One of the most coveted special awards was the ‘2019 Singapore Real Estate Personality of the Year’, which was given by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report magazine to Kemmy Tan, Chief Executive Officer of M+S Pte Ltd, the team behind the acclaimed Marina One and DUO projects, where were both completed in 2017. Through Tan’s vision and leadership, she has successfully brought vibrancy to the Marina Bay Pilot Business Improvement District. Tan is the second female recipient of the special award in Singapore, following Celine Tang of SingHaiyi Group in 2018.

Sustainable developments, smart buildings and co-working spaces took centre stage 

As a global leader and innovation hub for smart and sustainable building solutions in Asia, Singapore’s top developers competed for the Special Recognition in Sustainable Development award, presented to three equally deserving winners: Frasers Property Singapore, QingJian Realty (South Pacific) Group Pte. Ltd., and UOL Group Limited. Their respective projects demonstrated the smart use of design to reduce energy consumption, using green materials, while maintaining cost-effectiveness.

For its project’s innovative use of the latest consumer technology, smart building management, face-recognition security, and voice-activated appliances, the Best Smart Building Development gond was once again awarded to JadeScape by Qingjian Realty (Marymount) Pte Ltd, which received the same honour last year. Further development on the project made it eligible for this year’s awards programme.

To acknowledge the recent boom in co-working spaces locally, the judges presented the Best Co Working Space award to The Executive Centre: Level 17 Frasers Tower by The Executive Centre. The project was chosen for its design brilliance, on-trend design statements, and building a creative and interactive community within the co-working space.

Singaporean Winners to Compete for the ‘Best in Asia’ title

All the winners in Singapore will compete at the region-wide PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final to be held this November in Bangkok, for a chance to be crowned the ‘Best in Asia.’

Established in 2011 as part of the Asia Property Awards series, the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) is the gold standard in real estate, with every stage of the judging process, including site inspections, supervised by third-party BDO, one of the world’s award-winning and largest networks of accounting and auditing firms.

The ceremony was attended by more than 300 guests and VIPs, comprising C-level and senior industry figures in real estate development, property consultancy, construction, marketing, property technology, legal, finance and architecture and design.

Hari V. Krishnan, Chief Executive Officer of PropertyGuru Group, said: “We are privileged to bring together the country’s finest developers for our most successful edition yet of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore). These established and boutique developers inspire confidence with their commitment to innovation, green building standards, and heritage development. At PropertyGuru, our goal remains the same: to help property seekers in Singapore discover the best projects for them though the injection of transparency and trust in our vision for building a Property Trust Platform, that includes our coveted awards programme, which remains the gold standard in Asian real estate.”
