BANDAR SUNWAY, FEB 10 : Sunway Property Bhd, the property division of Sunway Bhd (SWB), has been named Property Company of the Year 2015 – Asia in the World Finance Real Estate Awards presented by World Finance, a leading UK-based financial magazine published by World News Media, in recognition of its high standards in design, quality, innovation and sustainable practices.
Readers of World Finance were invited to vote for the nominated organisations and projects across different continents, followed by internal research for final deliberation by the World Finance award selection panel.
The accolade underscores Sunway’s commitment to building for posterity through its unique build-own-operate business model, which ensures the continued and lifelong growth of its communities. Sunway Property has an enviable portfolio of successful and internationally acclaimed properties across Malaysia, Singapore, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, and India.
“We are delighted to award Sunway the title of ‘Property Company of the Year, Asia, 2015’,” said the World Finance judging panel. “Sunway’s commitment towards building a first class infrastructure in Malaysia, is helping to transform the country into one of Asia’s leading economies. At the same time, the company has been steadfast in its determination towards social development, focusing on both education and healthcare in particular. While the competition across Asia was fierce, Sunway’s leading role in rebuilding Malaysia makes it a worthy winner of this year’s award.”
In Malaysia, Sunway has created three value-generating hubs spanning some 4,000 acres across the country, transforming the way people live, learn, work and play in a safe, healthy and connected environment within the integrated townships of Sunway Resort City, Sunway City Ipoh, and Sunway Iskandar. Its first flagship township, Sunway Resort City, is a transformation of a derelict tin-mining land into a world-class township that garners 42 million visitations annually.
“We are honoured to have been recognised as a real estate leader in Asia, a testament that we are on the right track to pursue sustainable and participatory growth alongside our communities. We will continue to work to enrich the lives of our communities we serve,” said Sunway Group founder and chairman Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah.
