Regional, country winners soar to higher acclaim


During the 2019 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final

Asia’s long-running and most respected real estate awards series crescendoed to a celebratory finale with the announcement of the winners of the 2019 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final, presented by Kohler on November 22 at The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok in Thailand.

Around 150 nominees, representing major winning titleholders from PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards’ series of awarding ceremonies and gala dinners in 2019, put on their strongest front to be named “Best in Asia” from the Grand Final’s expanded, inclusive list of regional categories.

Singaporean development giant UOL Group Limited bested nine companies around the region for the most coveted trophy of Best Developer in Asia. It was a strong showing overall for Singapore at the Grand Final, with developers from the city-state claiming seven regional wins.

Liam Wee Sin, group chief executive of UOL Group Limited, said: “It is a delight as well as a privilege to be participating in this competition. We’re very glad not just for ourselves, but we’re very glad for each and every participant because each one of us took home not just an award; each one of us took home an idea of how the industry has been evolving over the years. I think PropertyGuru has been instrumental in uplifting the standard of design in each and every country and in Asia.”

The Philippines collected four regional prizes, including the new honours of Best CBD Development (Asia) and Best Township Masterplan Design (Asia).
