HONG KONG (24 May 2021) – Twelve outstanding real estate development projects from across the Asia Pacific region have been selected as winners of the 2021 ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence, which is widely recognized as one of the real estate industry’s most prestigious award programmes. This year’s winners, each of which demonstrates a comprehensive level of quality and a forward-looking approach to development and design, include four projects in China, four in Singapore, two in Japan and one each from Australia and Hong Kong SAR. Each of the winners came from a record high seventy-nine submissions.
A ceremony honouring the winners took place at the 2021 ULI Asia Pacific Summit on 24 May, which brought together real estate professionals from across the world.
The 2021 ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence winners (in alphabetical order of project name with developers, owners and designers in parentheses where appropriate) are:
“Against the backdrop of a pandemic and economic disruption, the ULI Asia Pacific Summit has been a wonderful opportunity for us to come together and celebrate truly exemplary real estate projects across the region, which will inspire our industry,” said Nicholas Brooke, chairman of ULI Asia Pacific. “This is yet another example of the value that ULI contributes to the industry through the sharing of knowledge and dissemination of best practice.”
David Faulkner, president of ULI Asia Pacific, commended the high standard of the entries received and said: “The Awards for Excellence programme is very important for ULI as it provides recognition for outstanding development projects and initiatives, and the great work of architects, developers and investors, which we can all learn from. The diverse range of projects from across our region demonstrates that the value of this competition. The winners can be tremendously proud of what they have achieved and we are enormously grateful for the time and effort that have gone in to all of the submissions as part of the process and for the tireless work of our jury members.”
“The ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence have gone from strength-to-strength since the competition was first held in 2019,” said Peter Holland, jury chair, director of Cistri, and ULI Global Trustee. “This year, we received our highest number of entries, and the calibre of the projects keeps growing, which made it particularly difficult to narrow the competition to just twelve winners. Whilst the projects vary significantly in scale, typology and geography, they do however, have one common feature: they are all outstanding projects in their own right and they reflect ULI principles.”
The ULI Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence programme recognises the full development process of a project, not just its architecture and design. Projects and programmes are evaluated according to the extent to which they:
The international jury that selected the winning projects is made up of leading ULI members representing multidisciplinary real estate expertise, including finance, planning, development, design, and other professional services.
