SonKim Land had the highest score in this category as a leading real estate developer in luxury projects, including residential, hospitality, retail, and office buildings. It also received points for using modern design methodologies to create economically and environmentally integrated, self-sustaining master developments.
Nguyen Hoang Tuan, chairman of SonKim Land, said, “We are very proud of winning this prestigious award, as this is the result of IAIR’s annual surveys to provide a qualitative and quantitative review of the best global firms with a focus on sustainability. This award once again proves SonKim Land’s reputation as a successful property development company in the Vietnamese market, focusing in the premium and luxury segment through developing projects in prime locations.”
SonKim Land is developing the sky villa project (Serenity Sky Villas) in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 3 – a true luxury project in the heart of downtown Ho Chi Minh City. In addition, customers have high trust in the company’s premium residential project Gateway Thao Dien, and the luxury apartment project called The Nassim, a joint venture project with HongKong Land, a reputed global developer.
“SonKim Land’s ongoing development projects are on schedule, demonstrating stable growth while affirming our strong financial strength of SonKim Land,” Tuan said. “This award creates the premise for SonKim Land to become the leading real estate development and investment company in the country, as well as in the region.”
