Great developers and projects were announced at the 7th Annual PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards programme in Ho Chi Minh City on 26th November 2021.

Around 71 winners across 56 categories were revealed in the hybrid gala celebration at the Park Hyatt Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. The momentous occasion included a live screening of the programme’s virtual red carpet and awards presentation that premiered on AsiaPropertyAwards.com/tv-podcast and multiple digital platforms. 

Keppel Land clinched the top honour of Best Developer, plus three Special Recognition accolades. With Phu Long Real Estate Corporation, it shared the award of Best Mid End Condo Development (HCMC) for their Celesta Rise project.  

The never-before-presented award of Best Luxury Developer was presented to SonKim Land Corporation. The Special Recognition for Landmark Development, another title presented for the first time this year, went to Grand Marina, Saigon by Masterise Homes.

Masterise Homes garnered the coveted Best Low Rise Condo Development (Vietnam) award for The Grand Hanoi. Another best-of-the-country accolade, Best Housing Development (Vietnam), was awarded to The Glen by Gamuda Land (HCMC) JSC., winner of the Best Lifestyle Developer title. Best High Rise Condo Development (Vietnam) was awarded to Define by CapitaLand – Thien Duc Co. Ltd.

Other winners of the Developer awards were CapitaLand Development (Vietnam); Danh Khoi Group Joint Stock Company; Hung Thinh Land Joint Stock Company; and National Housing Organization, JSC. 

The title of Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year, the only award not decided by the panel of judges, was presented to Le Van Kiem, founder and chairperson of KN Group. His pioneering work with thriving golf communities, as well as generous philanthropic activities during the pandemic, among other achievements, won over editors of PropertyGuru Property Report Magazine, who choose the recipient of the award every year.

Van Kiem said: “Our efforts in recent years have now seen validation from an extremely respected name in selecting the standout faces within the Asian real estate scene. This has been an honour and at the same time a valuable assessment that reminds us of the continued efforts we must put in order to live up to our status as one of the pioneers of the Vietnamese real estate business since the 1990s. We promise to strive to always be worthy of the trust and votes that we have received from such a prestigious magazine, one of interest to not just Asia’s real estate scene, but the entire world as they look for investment opportunities within Vietnam.”

The hybrid gala celebration was safely held with luminaries in Vietnam real estate in attendance, including renowned developers as well as the programme’s organisers, judges, sponsors and partners. The award-winning developers accepted their golden statuettes and certificates in ceremonies aligned with health and safety protocols. 

Hari V. Krishnan, Chief Executive Officer of PropertyGuru Group, said: “We share in the celebration of the victorious awardees at the 7th PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards. The 71 winners this year reinforce our commitment to this dynamic market. With luxurious homes and the sophistication of its industrial and commercial real estate, Vietnam lives up to its reputation as one of Asia’s most flourishing property marketplaces.”

Jules Kay, Managing Director of PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards and Events, said: “We are delighted to recognise and showcase a wide range of developments from various locations around Vietnam this year, including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and several other significant locations. The properties and companies selected by our expert judges this year highlight the quality and diversity that make Vietnam one of the key markets to watch in Asia.”

An independent panel of judges helped determine this year’s awardees. The judges comprise Thien Duong, Awards Chairperson and Managing Director, Transform Architecture; Alex Crane, Founder, Crane & Co, Real Estate Consulting; Chau Ta, Executive Director – Legal Transactions, SC Capital Partners Pte Ltd.; David McDonald, General Director, WT Partnership (Vietnam) LLC; Duc Truong, CEO, OJS Investment & Consulting Ltd. and Chairman, Edison Academy Vietnam Ltd.; Edward Haysom, General Director, Haysom Architects Vietnam; Hang Dang, Managing Director, CBRE (Vietnam) Co, Ltd.; Jean-Francois Chevance, Group Director of Hospitality and Design, Archetype Group; Mauro Gasparotti, Director, Savills Hotels APAC; and Paul D.

The judging panel also includes a team of specialists in the Hanoi market: Andras Germ, General Manager, Astra; Dang Van Quang, Director of Strategy Consulting Services, Navigat; Nguyen Phuong Dung, Legal Advisor – DFDL Vietnam Law Company Limited; and Tran Quynh Trang, owner of property management firm Sapphire Indochina.
