Malaysia’s premier real estate awards programme, The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia), enjoins the general public to submit their candidates for the finest developers, developments and design in the country, representing not only Klang Valley but also the dynamic regions of Penang and Iskandar. Public nominations, which have been open since 1 December, will close on 21 February.
The 7th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) follows a successful event last year that conferred trophies on 38 developers and projects and handed out 25 Highly Commended citations across 28 categories.
The 2020 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia), to be held on 10 April at the Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur is expected to highlight industrial and logistic categories once more as the segments become brighter spots in the country’s property sector. With yields of nine to 10%, industrial properties are set to shine as Malaysia solidifies into a logistics hub in the region.
One of the most noteworthy categories at the 6th edition of the Awards last year was the Special Recognition for Industrial/Logistic Development, bestowed on the winning properties of Sendayan TechValley, Area Logistics Hub @ Ampang, KL, and i-Park@Indahpura.
Well-connected, sprawling projects are also expected to figure prominently in this year’s selection of awardees, following transit-oriented developer MRCB Land’s win as Best Developer at the 2019 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia).
Other contended categories at the 2019 Awards included Best Hotel Development, won by Four Seasons Place Kuala Lumpur. The property went on to win the title’s regional equivalent at the 14th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final in November in Bangkok, Thailand.
Prem Kumar, executive director at Jones Lang Wootton, will resume his duties as chairperson of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia). As such, he will lead an independent panel of 11 industry experts in deliberations.
The 2020 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) features the support of platinum sponsor Kohler; official portal partner PropertyGuru.com.my; official magazine PropertyGuru Property Report; and official supervisor BDO, one of the world’s largest auditing and accounting firms.
If you know of any development projects in Malaysia that deserve to be named as the best in their categories, nominate them for the 7th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) on or before 21 February 2020. For more details, visit asiapropertyawards.com/award/asia-property-awards-malaysia.
