South East Asia Property Awards 2016

Awards will be presented for outstanding township, alternative housing, and mid-end and affordable condo developments. 

Nominations are now open for the sixth annual edition of the PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards, which was officially launched at a press briefing in Manila on Thursday (3 August). It is touted as the country’s biggest real estate awards programme.

This time, awards will be presented for best township development and best township design. The judges will be looking for the project’s smart city principles, sustainable design and carbon-emission management system, among others.

Awards will also be handed out for best alternative housing development, best mid-end condo development (Metro Manila), and best affordable condo development (Cebu).

Other categories include best BPO (business process outsourcing) office development, best mixed-use development and best universal design development.

The nomination period will close on 16 February 2018, while shortlisted nominees will be announced on 28 March.

A gala dinner to honour them will be held on 27 April at the Fairmont Makati. Around 300 of the country’s key industry veterans will be in attendance.

Before the event, the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report magazine will choose a new real estate personality winner.

As noted by the panel of judges, the property industry remains one of the drivers of the Philippine economy, where the GDP rate is among the highest in the ASEAN region.

Quality projects have been launched not just in Metro Manila, but also in provincial cities like Metro Cebu, Metro Davao, Iloilo and Tagaytay. 

“We’re excited to see what’s next for the fast-growing Philippine real estate sector,” said Hari V. Krishnan, CEO of PropertyGuru Group. “The annual Philippines Property Awards programme grows bigger each year – this event is a validation of the developers’ achievements and a celebration of their successes as determined by their peers.”
