After an unprecedented year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the EdgeProp Best Managed & Sustainable Property Awards 2021 (BMSPA 2021) returned for its fifth year in the form of a gala dinner at the One World Hotel, Petaling Jaya on April 4. The EdgeProp-ILAM Malaysia’s Sustainable Landscape Awards forms a category within the BMSPA 2021.
This year, the judges decided to divide the entries for the EdgeProp-ILAM awards into two sub-categories namely the Landscape Design category and the Landscape Planning category, based on their size and function, among other considerations. Paramount Property’s Hill Park at Bukit Banyan won gold in the Landscape Planning category. It was a hard won victory considering Sime Darby Property’s Elmina Central Park and Gamuda Land’s Central Park Phases 1,2,3 at Gamuda Gardens also won gold in the same category.
Paramount Corporation Berhad Chairman Dato’ Teo Chiang Quan and Paramount Property Chief Operating Officer Wang Chong Hwa were at the prize-giving ceremony to lend support to the property team led by Paramount Property CEO for the Northern region Ooi Hun Peng.
EdgeProp Malaysia editor-in-chief and Managing Director Au Foong Yee said the Awards are dedicated to the benchmarking of Malaysia’s Gold Standard of Property Management Practices and Sustainability. This year’s Awards attracted more than 40 submissions with a total of 26 awards given to 23 winning-projects. Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin was the guest-of-honour.
