The 8th Annual PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards gave visibility to the finest development companies in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon as well as homegrown development companies in Visayas and Mindanao.

SM Development Corporation (SMDC) accumulated eight wins at the event, including the coveted accolades of Best Developer and Best Lifestyle Developer. Meanwhile, Alveo Land, a subsidiary of Ayala Land, won six awards, including the top prize of Best Condo Development (Philippines) for its premium condominium development Portico and the regional prize of Best Condo Development (Visayas) for Solinea, its multi-tower residential project in Cebu City.

Hari V.

We’re so proud that in its eighth year, our awards programme has diversified to acknowledge innovative, sustainable, well-designed projects not only in the vibrant capital but also in stellar provincial markets throughout the archipelago.”

The 8th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards spawned a total of 37 award winners, including Edgar Saavedra, Chairman of Megawide Construction Corporation, who received this year’s Philippines Real Estate Personality of the Year title.
