The country’s leading real estate awards programme was held at InterContinental Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City, where outstanding builders from northern to southern Vietnam converged to vie for 49 awards.

The sixth PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards turned out to be a festive occasion for celebrating the nation’s rising crop of integrated township developments, master planned communities, mixed-use sites, and new urban areas.

Winning eight of its 12 nominations, Gamuda Land Vietnam was hailed as Vietnam’s Best Developer of 2020. One of its stand-out projects, Celadon City, a massive development by Gamuda Land (Ho Chi Minh City) JSC, won Best Masterplan Design.

SonKim Land Corporation also accumulated eight wins, including the honour for Best Boutique Developer. The most awarded project of the night was The Crest Residence, the ultra-luxury condo development also known as the second phase of SonKim Land’s mixed-use site Metropole Thu Thiem.

The Crest Residence was adjudged Best Condo Development (Vietnam) while another project in the vicinity, Metropole Thu Thiem Office Complex 1, garnered the trophy for Best Office Development.

Stella Mega City – a project by the winner of the Best Breakthrough Developer award, Kita Group Corporation JSC – was named Best Township Development. Ecopark Tourism and Trade Urban Area gained the title of Best Mega Township Development – one of five wins by Ecopark Corporation JSC, which won Best Mixed Use Developer.

Vietnam's first and biggest billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong was voted Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year

As a capstone to an already triumphant night, the award for Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year was presented to Vingroup chairman Pham Nhat Vuong, better known to many as the nation’s first and biggest billionaire.

After finding success with an instant-noodle business in Europe, Vuong established one of Vietnam’s biggest property development companies and turned it into the country’s largest private conglomerate, Vingroup.

A true builder of skylines, Vuong led Vingroup to develop Landmark 81, the country’s tallest building. Le Khac Hiep, vice chairman of Vingroup, accepted the award at the gala dinner.

The sixth PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards turned out to be a festive occasion for celebrating the nation’s rising crop of integrated township developments, master planned communities, mixed-use sites, and new urban areas.

The Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year award was the only accolade not chosen by the independent panel of judges but by the editorial team of PropertyGuru Property Report, the official magazine of the Asia Property Awards.

A total of 85 awardees received trophies and certificates of merit at the gala dinner and awards ceremony, among several special events staged physically by the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards in 2020. In light of the pandemic, safety protocols, including temperature checks, were observed in preparation for the ceremony and during the gala night.

“Congratulations to the winning companies and projects at the sixth PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards. We are proud to be the preferred platform for recognising and honouring the best creators of what’s next in Vietnam, from mega townships and master-planned communities to new urban areas that will transform the built environment in this stellar property market for years to come,” said Hari V. Krishnan, CEO of PropertyGuru Group.

Jules Kay, managing director of PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards and Events, said: “By showcasing the outstanding companies behind Vietnam's skylines and living spaces, we also shine light on the continued modernisation and growth throughout the country. From mega townships to the developer of the country's tallest building, this year’s winning projects and companies make it clear that Vietnam remains one of the most impressive property markets in Asia.”

This marked another year of strong representation for industrial development in Vietnam. The title of Best Industrial Development was presented to Rang Dong Textile Industrial Park (Aurora IP) by Cat Tuong Real Estate Group JSC. Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park and Township Development JSC (VSIP JSC), meanwhile, won six out of its eight nominations, including Best Residential Green Development for The Habitat Binh Duong, its venture with Sembcorp Gateway Development Co., Ltd.

The sixth PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards was supported by the industry’s leading brands, including returning platinum sponsor Kohler; official portal partner Batdongsan.com.vn; official local partner Oriental Media; official magazine PropertyGuru Property Report; and official PR partner T&H Communications; among others.
