The most inclusive roster of award-winners of the annual PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, the kingdom’s long-running and most prestigious real estate awards programme, were honoured at an exclusive ceremony on Friday evening (9 August) at the Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok.
Earning its first Best Developer (Thailand) title is Siamese Asset Co., Ltd, which collected a total of six golden trophies and three Highly Commended distinctions.
“Its finger firmly on the pulse of Bangkok’s NOW generation, Siamese Asset combines functionality and smart spaces to keep pace with the fluidity of millennial lifestyles; mixed-use Siamese Rama 9 symbolises a new CBD in the capital, engaging through strategic design and architecture to imagine a sense of place,” said the independent panel of judges.
One of last year’s runners-up in the Best Boutique category finally took the prize in this category; Habitat Group, the developer of Ramada by Wyndam Mira North Pattaya, and Walden Sukhumvit 39, left the ceremony with seven golden trophies and two commendations, including a gong for the Best Digital Performance Hotel Residence presented by smart solutions company WiseSight. The firm also honoured the year’s Best Digital Performance Condo Development (Bangkok), Best Digital Performance Housing Development (Bangkok), Best Digital Performance Condo Development (Provincial), Best Digital Performance Housing Development (Provincial), and Best Digital Performance Commercial Development.
Former Best Developer title holder Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC) won 17 trophies spanning a wide array of properties, including Best Ultra Luxury Condo, Smart Home, Best Senior Living, Best Green, and Best Universal Design Development, as well as the Special Recognition for Design and Construction (shared with Siamese Asset). MQDC was also selected by the programme’s Official Charity Partner to receive the Right To Play for Community Projects award for their outreach efforts outside their development sites.
