HCM CITY — The sixth annual PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards on October 9 honoured developers with outstanding achievements and prominent projects throughout Viet Nam.
Organised by PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading online property group, and presented by global brand Kohler, the awards celebrate the nation’s rising number of integrated township developments, master planned communities, mixed-use sites, and new urban areas.
Winning eight of its 12 nominations, Gamuda Land Vietnam won Viet Nam’s Best Developer of 2020 award. One of its stand-out projects, Celadon City, a massive development by Gamuda Land (HCM City) JSC in HCM City, won Best Masterplan Design.
SonKim Land Corporation also collected eight awards, including Best Boutique Developer. The most awarded project was The Crest Residence, the ultra-luxury condo development known as the second phase of SonKim Land’s mixed-use site Metropole Thủ Thiem. The Crest Residence was named Best Condo Development (Vietnam) while another project in the vicinity, Metropole Thủ Thiem Office Complex 1, won trophy for Best Office Development.
