Top property developers in the country were honoured for their outstanding achievements in the third instalment of the StarProperty.my Awards. The main aim was to recognise developers that had shown consistent financial strength and delivered quality products to their customers as homes or investment assets.
Held at JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur last night, the event was graced by Raja Muda SelaÂngor Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, who presented the top award to the recipients.
Also present was Star Media Group Berhad chairman Datuk Fu Ah Kiow.

This main award category honours developers that have consistently created and added value to their property projects while engaging with important stakeholders such as the community they serve and their customers.
Other notable winners included Mah Sing, MRCB and SP Setia under the StarProperty.my Readers' and Voters' Choice Award category.
"These developers have not only displayed their capabilities through their state-of-the-art developments, but have launched business models that fuse their corporate values with social responsibilities by developing sustainable communities for the future" said Star Media Group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai.
This year, four new categories were introduced - the Borneo Star Award, Happy Buyer Award, Long Life Award and Safe and Sound Award.
