Nam Long Investment Corporation wins Best Developer (Vietnam), while The Dàlat at 1200 Country Club and Private Estate sweeps with 5 awards
An action-packed evening full of celebration and surprises, the second annual Vietnam Property Awards Gala Dinner saw Nam Long Investment Corporation crowned Best Developer 2016.
The housing developer also received a single nomination for the Camellia residential development in Ho Minh City at the country’s biggest real estate event, which was held on 10 June at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon and welcomed more than 400 of the industry’s biggest names.
Known for its affordable Ehome brand and the Nam Long Home line for villas and townhouses, Nam Long is one of few Vietnamese developers, and among the first, according to the panel of judges, to attract high calibre overseas investors and development partners.
Although it didn’t win in the housing category for which it was nominated, Nam Long took home another top accolade of the year, the Special Recognition in CSR, for creating long-term benefits for local Vietnamese communities via fundraising, sustainable urban planning campaigns and construction of schools.
Six-time nominee Acteam International Co Ltd, a company of the Centurion Global Group Singapore, almost swept the awards, winning five gongs plus two Highly Commended honours, for the The Dàlat at 1200 Country Club and Private Estate condominiums and villas located in Highlands Vietnam.
The acclaimed eco-tourism development was also declared the recipient of the Best Villa Development (Vietnam) award, qualifying it – along with other Best of the Best winners – to move on to the South East Asia Property Awards grand finals in Singapore this November to compete with the ASEAN region’s cream of the crop.
Other big winners in Vietnam that will compete at the grand finals are: Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh Stadt by Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh Stadt Ltd, which took home the gongs for Best Commercial, Best Green and Best Office Developments; three-time winner The Hamptons Ho Tram by Tanzanite International, which dominated the hotel categories; and The Nassim by SonKim Land & HongKong Land, winner of the Best Condo Development (Vietnam) award.
Presented by Hansgrohe, the second annual Vietnam Property Awards celebrated the achievements of the country’s established and emerging developers, with a total of 22 award categories covering the residential, commercial and resort segments.
In addition to the various categories, a special, non-compete award was presented to three-time nominee CapitaLand Vietnam, whose CEO Chen Lian Pang was voted the Real Estate Personality of the Year by the editors of Asia’s industry-leading Property Report magazine.
Joining CapitaLand Vietnam in 2013 after holding several C-level executive positions in the CapitaLand Group across the Asia Pacific region for many years, Chen has earned a reputation of excellence, especially when it comes to successfully doing business in emerging markets like Vietnam.
“This is a remarkable achievement not only for myself but also for CapitaLand Vietnam, and reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality products to homebuyers,” Chen said.
