Alpha King emerged as the second-most nominated developer with 13 nods, while Gamuda Land and KIEN A Corporation were tied in third place with eight nominations each.
KIEN A Group’s founding chairman Dr Huynh Ba Lan has also been named by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report magazine as the Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year, for his efforts to produce quality projects for lower-income consumers and build schools that follow international standards.
Surpassing the number of awards given out last year, the 2018 programme features 43 categories, including new awards like Special Recognition for Building Communities, for Customer Care and for Design and Construction.
“I think there has never been another time in history where the country is developing at such an accelerated pace,” said Transform Architecture managing director Thien Duong, who also serves as third-term chairman of the independent judging panel.
“Our local property market has continued to grow in every price range from affordable to luxury. The market has matured considerably within a very short period of time due to more competition from more experienced foreign developers as well as local developers maturing and learning industry best practices from their overseas partners.”
Meanwhile, the winners and highly commended recipients will be revealed at a gala dinner on 22 June at the InterContinental Saigon Hotel. Touted as the biggest edition yet, the black-tie ceremony is expected to be attended by close to 500 guests and members of the press.
