New Starlight Construction Co., Ltd. bagged the highest prize of Best Developer at the 5th PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards 2019, which was presented by global brand Kohler on 23 October at the Sule Shangri-La, Yangon hotel.

This comes after the company’s Mingalar Mandalay project bested other nominees in all categories it competed in – namely, Best Mixed Use Development and Best Condo Development.

Living Square clinched the Best Boutique Developer award, while Crown Advanced Construction Co., Ltd emerged as the biggest winner as it claimed the Best Office Development, Best Retail Development, and Best Universal Design Development awards for its Times City project.

Island resort developer Wa Ale received two of the three special awards – Special Recognition in Sustainable Development as well as Special Recognition in CSR, which it shared with New Starlight Construction.

The Special Recognition for Bank Facility, which is a new category, was handed out to uab bank Limited for its uab Tower, which also won Best Office Interior Design.

The ARYU International Hospital in Yangon received the Best Healthcare Development award, a category that was opened only this year.

Meanwhile, U Win Aung was presented by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report the 2019 Myanmar Real Estate Personality of the Year award for his influential part in attracting investments into Myanmar’s industrial sector, most recently via his company Myanmar Thilawa SEZ Holdings.

“We see our company’s pioneering spirit reflected in the PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards’ enduring commitment to rewarding the frontier market’s most enterprising builders and designers,” said PropertyGuru Group CEO Hari V. Krishnan.

“As one of the longest-running programmes of its kind in Myanmar, the awards took first-mover advantage of a promising market when no one would. We are so proud to see an entire nation blossom alongside these award-winning real estate projects, which we believe are the keys to modernising Myanmar.”
