VinaCapital projects win multiple honours at the 2015/16 International Property Awards

HO CHI MINH CITY – VinaCapital, a leading asset management and real estate development group focused on Vietnam, has been honoured with a total of three awards at the 2015/16 International Property Awards (Asia Pacific region), which are among the world’s most prestigious real estate industry accolades.

VinaCapital was recognised across the three categories it entered which included ‘Best Golf development’ in Vietnam (Danang Beach Resort), ‘Best Villa development’ in Vietnam (Dai Phuoc Lotus) and ‘Best Development Marketing’ for VinaLiving.

VinaCapital’s Managing Director of Real Estate David Blackhall commented, “These international awards affirm VinaCapital as a globally recognized real estate development firm and help to verify the superior standard of quality and expertise we put forth in each project we are involved in. We believe our approach of offering buyers a product that meets international standards at a competitive price, under one master brand, sets VinaCapital apart from its competitors not only in Vietnam, but also across the Asian Pacific region.”

The continuing success of the Danang Beach Resort, Dai Phuoc Lotus and the VinaLiving brand are further underlined by the tremendous success with the recent launch of The Point which has seen close to 80% sold out since it was initially launched to the market in Q4 2014.

Looking into 2015, VinaLiving will also be launching the second phase of The Ocean Apartments in June 2015, together with a landmark villa development in Ho Chi Minh City to be launched in the latter parts of 2015.

Nearly 30 countries took part in the 2015/16 International Property Awards. These awards were established 20 years ago and cover residential as well as commercial categories.
