SINGAPORE: Selangor Dredging Bhd (SDB) has won the FIABCI Singapore Property Awards 2017 in the Residential (Mid-Rise) category for Hijauan on Cavanagh.
In an Oct 10 press release, the Malaysian developer said the development by wholly owned subsidiary SDB Asia Pte Ltd will now compete in the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence 2018.
Hijauan on Cavanagh is located adjacent to the grounds of the Istana and is a short walk away to Orchard Road and the Somerset MRT station, via a pedestrian link bridge. It comprises 41 residential units.
The release said Hijauan on Cavanagh was planned to blend with the lush surroundings and was designed with subtle elements of art incorporated to beautify the building. Each unit has a hand-tooled copper door which opens up into spatially planned homes with balconies to bring in the refreshing outdoors.
“We are indeed delighted that our development has won the Singapore Property Awards. This is our first FIABCI win in Singapore. We will work towards having more award winning developments in the future,” said SDB managing director Ms Teh Lip Kim (pic).
SDB has previously won 5 FIABCI Malaysia Property Awards for its developments, namely Park Seven in Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) in 2009, 20trees in Melawati in 2012, Dedaun in Jalan Ampang in 2015, By The Sea in Batu Ferhinggi Penang and an environmental award for the River Rehabilitation project on Sungai Satu, Batu Ferhinggi Penang both in 2016.
These projects have then gone on to participate on a global level at the FIABCI Prix d’Excellence awards and SDB has since garnered 1 gold and 4 silver awards at this prestigious international competition.
FIABCI is the French acronym for ‘International Real Estate Federation’, which recognises excellence in real estate world-wide.
