    S'porean developers win international awards

    By UMA SHANKARI


    THREE property projects in Singapore have picked up honours at the Fiabci Prix d'Excellence Competition this year.

    Orchard Scotts, by Far East Organization, came out tops in the residential category, while Newton Suites, by UOL Group, took second spot. The St Regis Singapore, by City Developments, Hong Leong Holdings and TID Pte Ltd, won in the hotel category.

    Fiabci is the French acronym for the International Real Estate Federation, which organises the annual Prix d'Excellence to recognise excellence in property development.

    Entrants are evaluated on five criteria: global concept, architecture and design, development and construction, community benefit and environmental impact, and financials and marketing.

    Singapore developments have consistently performed well in the Fiabci competition.

    Republic Plaza, by CityDev, was the first project to bag the Fiabci Prix d'Excellence overall winner prize, in 1997.

    Other top winners over the years include Suntec City, Prudential Tower and Caribbean at Keppel Bay, the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, 1 Moulmein Rise and One Raffles Quay.

    The win by Orchard Scotts is the fifth Fiabci award for Far East. The company is the only developer in the world to have five Fiabci wins.

    Chia Boon Kuah, chief operating officer, property sales, said: 'Our five Fiabci awards in residential, leisure and the specialised categories underscore Far East Organization's growing capabilities in real estate development.'

    Chia Ngiang Hong, CityDev group general manager, said that The St Regis Singapore was envisioned as an emblem of the city's emergence into the new millennium.

    It is an honour that the six-star hotel has been internationally recognised, he said.

    Singapore property projects won honours at the Cityscape Asia Real Estate awards this week.

    CityDev's luxury residential development, The Sail @ Marina Bay, was named the best built waterfront development, while Far East's The Central emerged as the best built mixed-use development. Keppel Land's Ocean Financial Centre won the prize for best future green development.

    Fusionpolis 2A came up tops in the best urban design and master planning category, while CapitaLand's Muchuan Green Hope School was honoured in the best corporate social responsibility development category.

    Developer Far East Organisation wins its 5th FIABCI real estate award

    SINGAPORE: Singapore developers continued to perform well at the annual FIABCI Prix d'Excellence competition this year.

    Far East Organisation won the top prize in the Residential Category with its Orchard Scotts project.

    This is the company's fifth FIABCI award to date, making it the only developer in the world to snag five wins in the prestigious competition.

    Its previous wins were for developments including The Bayshore, Far East Square, Gardenville and Fullerton Square.

    City Developments Limited, Hong Leong Holdings and TID clinched the top prize in the Hotel Development Category with their joint-venture project, St. Regis Singapore.

    UOL Group was awarded the First Runner-Up for its residential development, Newton Suites.

    The FIABCI Awards recognises excellence in all aspects of real estate developments.

    In a statement, the Real Estate Developers' Association of Singapore said the awards are coming at a time when the Singapore brand has won wide international recognition with property purchasers in China, India, Vietnam and other countries.

    Separately, Far East Organisation said its mixed-used development, Central, located along the Singapore River, has received the Cityscape Asia Real Estate Award.

    The Cityscape Awards rewards excellence in architecture and design for projects in the region. - CNA/vm
