Shortlist of winners announced for inaugural PH property awards 2013

MANILA, Philippines—After an extended and thorough judging process that included a series of site visits for the development entries, the esteemed panel of seven expert judges for the Philippines Property Awards has announced its full shortlist of winners.

Every shortlisted company will receive either a winner’s trophy or a “Highly Commended” certificate and the awards will be presented by leading industry figures in the ballroom of Raffles & Fairmont

Makati on the evening of September 30.

Alba Romeo & Co, representing BDO Advisory as the independent monitor for the judging process, confirmed that the scores for the awards had been tabulated appropriately, based on score sheets provided by the judges.

In the non-development categories, notable names on the shortlist of winners include Shang Properties Realty Corporation, Robinsons Land Corporation and DMCI Project Developers Inc., all named in the “Best Developer” category while for “Best Boutique Developer,” the companies listed are Alphaland Corporation, Arthaland Corporation and Mañosa Properties, Inc.

Well-known residential projects are also included among the winners. In Metro Manila, One Shang

Place, Arya Residences and Raffles Suites are all named in the “Best Luxury Condo Development” category.

Meanwhile in Cebu City, Avida Towers Riala, 1016 Residences and Park Point Residences

also made the winners’ shortlist.

Commercial developments slated for awards later this month include Zuellig Building, which is named “Best Commercial Development (Office)”.

Magnolia Town Center, Century City Mall and Park Mall Cebu are all on the shortlist for “Best Commercial Development (Retail)”.

Then there is the “Best Condo Development (Resort)” category, for which Pico de Loro Cove at Hamilo Coast, Aqua Boracay and Boracay Newcoast have all been shortlisted.

“I am delighted to see such a diverse and exciting shortlist in the first year of the Philippines Property Awards,” said Terry Blackburn, CEO, Ensign Media, the organizers of the awards and publishers of Property Report Magazine.

“We always hoped that we would get the leading companies in local real estate fully engaged with

the awards, but this list surpasses our expectations. We are clearly laying firm foundations for the future of the PPAs and can see them growing rapidly from this very strong start. I wish the best of luck to all the shortlisted companies and thanks to the judges for selecting such a strong and balanced field.”

In addition to the above awards, other accolades will include prizes for “Best Architecture,” “Best Interior Design,” as well as awards for the “Best Agent” and “Best Management Company.” The editorial team at Property Report Magazine will also announce the winner of the Philippines Real Estate Personality of the Year Award 2013.
