PETALING JAYA: Back for its sixth consecutive year, the StarProperty Awards for 2021 has upped the ante more than ever before.
The awards, which pay homage to premier real estate developers and the developments for challenging the boundaries of innovation, architecture and functionality, will see more categories as well as the return of the coveted All-Stars Awards.
The judging panel comprises captains of the Malaysian real estate industry and national leaders of various disciplines, including architecture, real estate investment trusts, geomancy sciences, landscape architecture, sustainable building, interior design, real-estate-related services and businesses.
The awards will also give reverence to stakeholders of the tourism sector with which the hospitality industry, and hotels, in particular, are affiliated.
Among the first of the property developers to participate in next year’s prestigious awards is I-Bhd, the master developer behind the RM10bil i-City Selangor Golden Triangle (SGT) project.
