By Romesh Navaratnarajah: The highly-anticipated Marina South development (pictured) by M+S Pte Ltd has clinched three awards at the prestigious Asia Pacific Property Awards 2012 for Best Mixed-use Development, Best Mixed-use Architecture and Best High Rise Architecture.
The event is part of the International Property Awards - recognised as a symbol of excellence throughout the global industry.
Integrating office, retail and residential components, the Marina South development is designed by Ingenhoven Architects, a German-based leader in sustainable design practices.
It is set to become the country's new central business district (CBD) and is adjacent to Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, the Singapore Flyer and the upcoming Gardens by the Bay.
"M+S Pte Ltd has made tremendous headway in bringing our vision to life with this project and today's recognition is a testament of our commitment in creating a superlative landmark development in the heart of Marina South which sets the standard for international excellence in design and sustainability for integrated living," said Datuk Azman Yahya, Chairman of the Board.
M+S Pte Ltd is a 60:40 joint venture between Khazanah Nasional Berhad (Malaysia) and Singapore's Temasek Holdings (Private) Limited. In March, the company signed property development loans with eight banks.
"Any company to win one of these awards has shown exceptional levels of professionalism and competence in their respective field," noted Stuart Shield, President of the International Property Awards. Related Stories: SeaHill preview garners strong interest
