Update: As of 17 July 2020, PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Sri Lanka) has withdrawn the accolades for Blue Ocean Group in line with our Terms & Conditions.

More than a dozen companies have been shortlisted for the 2018 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Sri Lanka), which will be held for the first time in Colombo on 12 July.

Last year’s Best Developer winner, Blue Ocean Group of Companies received seven nods, including nominations for the Best Affordable Condo Development, Best Mid End Condo Development, and Best Condo Interior Design. The company received two trophies and two commendations at the 2017 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final ceremony held in Singapore.

This was followed by Maga Engineering with five nominations as well as Capital TRUST Residencies and Walkers CML Properties with four nods each.

Other finalists that received multiple nominations include Home Lands Skyline with three nominations and Indocean Developers (two nominations).

Indocean Developers’ director Pradeep Moraes has been named by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report magazine as the first Sri Lanka Real Estate Personality of the Year for his efforts to raise the local real estate sector’s standards and for his work as chairman of the Condominium Developers Association of Sri Lanka.

“Post-war Sri Lanka has seen a huge development in the real estate sector. There are a lot of rapid developments and I think this is a brilliant time to showcase Sri Lankan real estate, capabilities, and design competency at a regional level,” said Paramount Realty CEO Dr Nirmal de Silva, who will once again serve as this year’s head judge.

With Sri Lanka’s Megapolis and Western Development Minister Champika Ranawaka set to deliver the keynote address, the black-tie gala dinner at the ballroom of Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo is expected to be attended by some 300 guests and members of the press.

The main category winners will compete in the regional PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final that will be held for the first in Bangkok in November.
