Nominations are open for the sixth annual South East Asia Property Awards (Singapore), organised by online property company, PropertyGuru Group.
The Awards, which celebrate the achievements of developers and property developments as well as design and are presented by Hansgrohe, will this year include a new category – Special Recognition in Sustainable Development. This is in addition to the existing Special Recognition in Corporate Social Responsibility award.
“Singapore continues to produce world-class developments that are the gold standard for any country in ASEAN and is a regional leader in CSR and sustainable development,” said Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of the Asia Property Awards, which is now in its 11th year.
“We’re confident that this new category will recognise the growing importance of sustainability among developers not just in Singapore but in Southeast Asia as a whole, and will set a new benchmark of quality for the region’s real estate sector.”
This year the Best Commercial Development category has been expanded, with entries accepted for Best Retail Development, Best Office Development, Best Hotel Development and Best Mixed-Use Development.
All winners are determined by an independent judging panel, except for the Real Estate Personality of the Year award. The editors of Asia’s industry-leading Property Report magazine will decide the winner based on their significant contribution to Singapore’s property sector over the past 12 months.
The Awards ceremony will be held Thursday, 24 November at the event’s official venue, the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore.
