Winners of Philippines Property Awards 2015 Announced

Winners and Highly Commended developments and property developers were chosen from across Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao.
More than 250 of the nation’s brightest leaders and talents in real estate, architecture, and design gathered in Manila to reward the best of the best in the property sector at the annual Philippines Property Awards 2015.

The prestigious gala dinner and awards presentation ceremony, now on its third year, part of the decade-old Asia Property Awards series, was held following a rigorous six-month entry process—which was free to enter—and comprehensive site inspection period by the esteemed and independent panel of judges, as assessed by BDO, one of the world’s biggest accounting firms.

SM Prime Holdings claimed the year’s top honor—Best Developer—beating last year’s champion Ayala Land Inc., which took home a Highly Commended accolade in the category along with fellow nominee Megaworld Corp.

With a total of nine nominations, the SM group was also declared Winner in several other categories, including Best Retail Development and Best Retail Architectural Design, both for Mega Fashion Hall through subsidiary First Asia Realty Development Corporation.

Meanwhile, the group’s SMDC unit dominated multiple categories, picking up the trophy for Best Landscape Architectural Design for Shell Residences and the award for Best Affordable Condo Development (Metro Manila).

SMDC’s Shell Residences won Best Landscape Architectural Design, while SM Prime bagged the Best Developer award

“This Best Developer award means so much for SM group, as we are in the company of the best developers in the country,” said Jeffrey Lim, SM Prime’s executive vice-president.

Ayala Land Inc. did not come home empty-handed, taking the award for Special Recognition in CSR for its commitment to building sustainable communities in the Philippines, plus another award for Best Residential Architectural Design. Its subsidiary Alveo Land was declared two-time winner for its latest condo and residential projects in Cebu and Davao, respectively.

Megaworld’s Three Central was named Best Residential Interior Design

According to Terry Blackburn, CEO of Ensign Media and publisher of Property Report, the awards’ highly qualified central panel of judges have worked hard to ensure that they have the highest quality winners across all categories from all deserving developers and projects that showcase the best of the best in the country’s real estate sector.

He adds: “This year’s batch of winners, from Manila to Cebu and Davao, truly represent what the local real estate scene can offer.”

Top winners in the Philippines will go on to compete on the regional stage at the Asia Property Awards grand finals on October 21 at the fifth annual South East Asia Property Awards 2015 in Singapore, which takes place immediately right after the first-ever Property Report Congress, a high-level forum for the region’s real estate leaders.

This year’s Real Estate Personality of the Year—the only award not chosen by the judging panel—was given to Ramon Fernando D. Rufino, executive vice-president of office developer The Net Group. Rufino was selected by the editors of Property Report for his achievements as chairman of the Philippine Green Building Council, which was recently recognized by the World Green Building Council as an emerging member.
