SMIC wins big at Philippines Property Awards 2015 by Jillian CariolaPublished: July 15, 2015Updated: July 15, 2015

SM Prime and SMDC took home top awards and commendations for this year’s event.

SM Prime Holdings was hailed as the “Best Developer” in this year’s recently held Philippines Property Awards, besting Megaworld Corporation and last year’s winner Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), both of which took home a “Highly Commended” honor.

“This Best Developer award means so much for SM group, as we are in the company of the best developers in the country. Our group is committed to building integrated communities across the country with residential, commercial, retail and lifestyle components, and this honour is a testament of our engagement to the property industry,” SM Prime executive vice-president Jeffrey Lim said.

SM Prime was also awarded “Best Retail Development” and “Best Retail Architectural Design”, both for Mega Fashion Hall through subsidiary First Asia Realty Development Corporation.

SM Development Corporation (SMDC) also won big as it was awarded “Best Landscape Architectural Design” for Shell Residences, as well as two “Highly Commended” certificates under the same category for Grace Residences and Trees Residences. The developer took home the “Best Affordable Condo Development (Metro Manila) award Mezza II Residences, and a “Highly Commended” certificate under the category for Green Residences. Wind Residences was given a “Highly Commended” certificate under the “Best Mid-Range Development (Resort)”.

Aside from the commendation, ALI was also given the “Best Residential Architectural Design” for Park Terraces, as well as Special Recognition in CSR for building sustainable communities in the country. Its subsidiary Alveo Land Corporation picked up two awards for their condo and residential projects in Cebu (Solinea) and Davao (Abreeza Residences), while Avida Land received two “Highly Commended” certificates.

Megaworld also received multiple titles, namely “Best Luxury Development (Resort) for Boracay Newcoast-Oceanway Residences under subsidiary Global-Estate Resorts, Inc. and “Best Residential Interior Design” for Three Central, as well as six “Highly Commended” awards.

The winners were chosen after a six-month entry process and site inspections performed by a panel of judges composed of industry leaders. Overseeing the procedure was world-renowned accounting firm BDO.

“This year’s batch of winners, from Manila to Cebu and Davao, truly represents what the local real estate scene can offer. The country’s property market continues to go from strength to strength, as demonstrated by the robust growth in the commercial, retail, office and mixed-use sectors, as well as putting the spotlight on secondary cities and resort destinations across the archipelago,” Ensign Media CEO and Property Report magazine publisher Terry Blackburn said.

The country’s top winners will compete regionally at the Asia Property Awards on October 21 at the fifth annual South East Asia Property Awards 2015 in Singapore.

A special award was also given to The Net Group’s executive vice president Ramon Fernando D. Rufino for his achievements as chairman of the Philippine Green Building Council (PHILGBC).
