Malaysian firms shine at Asia Pacific Property Awards

KUALA LUMPUR: Six Malaysian companies stole the limelight at the recent Asia Pacific Property Awards 2010, after they were named local and regional champions in their respective categories. They are four developers, a real estate agency and an architecture firm.

The event, held in Hong Kong in association with Bloomberg Television last Friday, saw Mah Sing Group Bhd winning four awards, the most by a Malaysian developer this year.

Its One Legenda project secured two awards — Best Residential Property in Malaysia and in Asia Pacific.

Mah Sing's Legenda@Southbay in Penang won the Best Architecture Malaysia award while The Icon clinched the Highly Commended award in the Best Office Development category.

The Asia Pacific Property Awards is part of the International Property Awards that identifies the best real estate professionals across the globe.

"Being awarded at a regional level and to represent Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific region on a global stage reaffirms our status as a premier lifestyle developer. It is indeed an honour to be recognised for what we do but more importantly, it is a testament to the talent and passion of our entire organisation, which is committed to delivering innovative concepts, high-quality and exceptional service," said Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Mah Sing's group managing director and group CEO.

Looking ahead, Leong said Mah Sing was keen on participating in the tender process for government-owned prime tracts of land.

He said the developer was eyeing niche sites within the Golden Triangle besides suburban enclaves such as the 3,000-acre (1,200ha) new Klang Valley hub in Sungai Buloh for township projects.

"We look forward to participating in the government's tender process for the land and will be happy to take on the entire project or in joint venture with government-linked companies," Leong said in a statement on Tuesday, April 20.

Meanwhile, Sunrise Bhd's 28 Mont'Kiara project was named the Best Residential High-Rise Development in the Asia-Pacific.

Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, which was named the best retail development in Malaysia, also won the architecture award for the retail category in the Asia-Pacific.

Joyce Yap, CEO of Pavilion KL's retail operations, said in a statement: "It is an honour to receive such prestigious awards. It is indeed a substantial recognition of our standing as a world-class player in the global retail industry.

"Careful planning was done to ensure the construction is of world-class standard with inspiring designs and functional spaces based on a guest-centric approach."

Dijaya Corp Bhd's Tropicana Golf & Country Resort was named the best golf development in the Asia-Pacific.

Dijaya managing director Datuk Tong Kien Onn said: "We are honoured to win the award and we attribute this success to all employees of Dijaya for their passion, dedication as well as the trust which our customers have in our company."

Architecture firm K2LD Architects Pte Ltd, which designed the G Hotel in Penang, won the Best Hotel Construction & Design Asia Pacific award.

Real estate agency Zerin properties took home three awards — the best commercial property marketing consultancy in Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific, and the best residential real estate agency in Malaysia.

"These awards are a testament to having a great team of people around you. We are an award-winning team and this adds to our trophy cabinet of international awards we have been winning over the years," said Previndran Singhe, the company's CEO.

Top scorers in the Asia-Pacific will compete against their peers from other regions later this year.
