The Vietnam Property Awards is the country’s most prestigious awards programme.

Shortlisted nominees for the Vietnam Property Awards 2016, organised by Property Report magazine, were announced recently, with the exclusive event returning after a successful first year. Awards will be handed out for 22 categories this year, with 21 developers making the final cut.

The leading nominees this year are Acteam International Co. Ltd and Phu Quoc Development & Investment Joint Stock Company. Both developers racked up five nominations each. CapitaLand (Vietnam) and commercial property developer Tanzanite International also garnered multiple nominations and are in the running for three and four awards respectively.

According to Thien Duong, Chairman of the judging panel and Managing Director of Transform Architecture, the Awards offers a much-needed boost for developers.

“The shortlisted companies can be proud that they have made benchmark contributions to the built environment while providing high value for money to their customers and investors,” said the design expert.

“This is an opportunity for businesses in Vietnam to strive not just for profit, but to create brands that have long-term credibility in the market. Well-designed and developed projects help to elevate the level of standard for properties in Vietnam.”

Projects from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Danang, Phu Quoc and Nha Trang were all nominated, highlighting the depth and diversity found in Vietnam’s growing property market.

The Best Green Development is shaping up to be one of the most hotly contested categories, featuring Acteam International’s eco-tourism project The Dalat at 1200, the mixed-use Novotel Phu Quoc Resort by Phu Quoc Development & Investment, The Ascent: Thao Dien Condominiums and office building Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh Stadt.

The winners and highly commended nominees will be announced during a gala dinner held at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City on June 10.
