Accolades for Best-In-Class property projects

Top home builders shaping a better future for the country


The Awards event was initiated to recognise and commend top developers in Malaysia for their significant contributions in creating a progressive and modern nation by delivering sustainable, innovative and quality property products.

Since its inception in 2016, the prestigious event has grown to become one of the most trusted accreditations for the real estate industry.

For 2017, the Awards was extended to northern and southern Peninsular Malaysia. The venture down south culminated in the first Awards 2017: Jewels of Johor.


This year, the event spread its wings to East Malaysia. The Awards 2018 has 21 award categories and two special All-Star Awards, including the introduction of four new categories and three sub-categories to recognise a broader variety of property design elements and to encourage developers to break new ground while continuing to provide sustainable housing to the public.

The four new categories are: The Happy Buyer Award, The Long Life Award, The Safe and Sound Award and The Borneo Star Award.

Meanwhile, The Family-Friendly Award was split into two sub-categories to acknowledge excellent projects of different tiers – for those priced from RM350,000 and those above RM750,000. And for the first time, has honoured commercial projects with its coveted WOW Award.


Participating projects were rated against criteria set for each category and judged by a panel of industry experts including an architect, landscape architect, surveyor, consultant, real estate agent and media representative.

The All-Star Award: Top Ranked Developers of the Year acknowledges the best performers in the country with the support of Affin Hwang Asset Management. The All-Star Award: Readers’ & Voters’ Choice Award celebrates the developers that have made a substantial contribution to society over the years and won the public’s trust in the process.

The exclusive Awards Night 2018 on March 14 was graced by Selangor Raja Muda Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

The award-winning developers and projects will be brought to the public during the Awards 2018 Showcase Fair at The Curve Shopping Mall (concourse area) from March 29 to April 1 (Thursday to Sunday), 10am to 10pm.

The showcase of the properties will continue virtually from April 2 (Monday) onwards. Visit to experience a complete digital full HD 3D exhibition.

Besides, the winning developments will also be highlighted in a book entitled Malaysia’s Most Exceptional Developments 2018/2019.

The awards are sponsored by Eastern Decorator, a leading manufacturer of home textiles and bed ware.

Green Planet Midori Sdn Bhd, which introduced PAFCAL, a soilless planting medium, is another supporter of the event.

The blossoming symbol of victory


From seed to flower

Elegant and smoothly curved, the trophy of Awards was inspired by the form of a flower bud. Three transparent petals encircle the awards logo, forming a protective ring that symbolises a shelter for future generations.

The journey of budding, a metaphor for growth and expansion, begins from a small seed which then develops into a bud and eventually blossoms into a beautiful flower.

Petals of success

Each of the petals represents one key pillar of success – sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Together, these petals shape the early formation of a flower and represent the essence that drives and guides the company and industry to grow and flourish.

A thriving industry

The Chinese pronunciation of “Three” is a homophonic to the word “Alive”. The three petals symbolise the vitality and vibrancy of the real estate industry.
