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 Việt 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.

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 Thiêm. The Crest Residence was named Best Condo Development (Vietnam) while another project in the vicinity, Metropole Thủ Thiêm Office Complex 1, won trophy for Best Office Development.

Last year’s Best Developer, Kiến Á Corporation, won all eight of its nominations, including the title for Best Lifestyle Developer. Its Lavila Island project alone won three awards, including the award for Best Housing Development (Vietnam).

The award for Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year was presented to Vingroup Chairman Phạm Nhật Vượng. The award was not chosen by the independent panel of judges, but instead by the editorial team of PropertyGuru Property Report, the official magazine of the Asia Property Awards.

After finding success with an instant-noodle business in Europe, Vượng established one of Việt Nam’s biggest property development companies and turned it into the country’s largest private conglomerate, Vingroup.
