Thursday 15 August 2019, 09:48AM
Phuket’s Kamala-located MGallery Residences, MontAzure Lakeside by MontAzure won three national accolades at the 14th Annual PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, while several other Phuket projects also picked up major awards. The annual PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, the Kingdom’s long-running and most prestigious real estate awards programme, were honoured at an exclusive ceremony at the Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, in Bangkok last Friday (Aug 9). Among the three awards won by MGallery Residences, MontAzure Lakeside was “Best Hotel Residence”, besting Ramada by Wyndam Mira North Pattaya by Habitat Group and Wyndham Garden Irin Bangsaray Pattaya by Irin Property Co Ltd, which both received “Highly Commended”. MGallery Residences, MontAzure Lakeside also won “Best Condo Architectural Design (Resort)”, topping The Riviera Jomtien by The Riviera Group and Utopia Karon by Utopia Construction Group Co Ltd. The MGallery Residences project in Phuket also scooped the “Best Condo Landscape Architectural Design (Resort) prize, ahead of Utopia Loft Naiharn by Utopia Construction Group Co Ltd. Also scoring big in the national awards was Avadina Hills by Anantara, a development in Phuket by Minor International and Kajima, claiming the “Best Housing Development (Thailand)” prize. Avadina Hills by Anantara also won “Best Luxury Housing Development (Phuket)”. The award for “Best Housing Development (Phuket)” went to Anchan Hills by Pearl Island Property, with Botanica Luxury villas by Botanica Luxury Phuket Co Ltd, Riverhouse by E Land Development Co Ltd, and Utopia Maikhao by Utopia Construction Group Co Ltd all receiving “Highly Commended” awards. The Best Condo Development (Phuket) awards went to Utopia Loft Naiharn, with MGallery Residences, MontAzure Lakeside also picking up a “Highly Commended” prize in the category. Meanwhile, Phuket projects Anchan Hills by Pearl Island Property and Botanica Luxury villas by Botanica Luxury Phuket Co Ltd both also scored a “Highly Commended” in the “Best Housing Architectural Design (Resort)” national category, won by by The Prospect by Grand Paradise Villa Co Ltd. Outside Phuket, the Aquella Lakeside by Paradise Group won the “In Best Housing Development (Phang-Nga and Krabi)” award. Earning its first Best Developer (Thailand) title was 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. In another landmark year for the prestigious awards, a total of 64 honours were presented in 2019 including Best Hotel Residence, Best Senior Living Architectural Design, and the Special Recognition for Public Facility for the Deep Excavation and Completion of the Sanam Chai Station Project by Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand, and the Suvarnabhumi International Airport Midfield Satellite 1 by Airport of Thailand Public Company Limited.

He was chosen for his leadership and contributions to the Thailand 4.0 initiative. The special award was presented on behalf of the editors of Property Report magazine by PropertyGuru Group’s chief business officer Jeremy Williams.  The five-hour awards ceremony and gala dinner – one of the most awaited real estate industry events in Thailand – was graced by Mom Ratchawongse Chatu Mongol Sonakul, Thailand’s Minister of Labour, and former Governor of the Bank of Thailand, who encouraged property developers in Thailand to create a safe and progressive environment for all real estate and construction professionals.  Hari V.
