Village at Pasir Panjang in Singapore, a development by Malaysia’s Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB) Group, has been announced as the World Gold Winner of FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2019 in the Residential (Low-Rise) category during the 2019 FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards held at the Golden Palace, Moscow, Russia.
Village at Pasir Panjang comprises 148 exclusive residences consisting of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units and 3 and 4 bedroom state-of-the-art penthouses, located in a quiet low-density residential enclave at 463 Pasir Panjang Road along the highly sought after West Coast area in the western part of Singapore.
Characterised by simplicity and purity of lines, Village at Pasir Panjang was inspired by the concept of kampung (which means “village” in Bahasa). For example, instead of conventional shutting doors, the development is designed with the veranda inspired balconies facing inward, overlooking into lawn to encourage community living.
“In land-scarce Singapore, people desire and appreciate the great open spaces, outdoor activities, quiet sitting areas and green pathways which could all be found in Village at Pasir Panjang,” said Ms Teh Lip Kim, Group Managing Director of SDB.
“We are indeed delighted that our development Village at Pasir Panjang is the World Gold Winner for FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2019. This is second FIABCI Prix d’Excellence in Singapore and our sixth FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence win and we are indeed proud to have flown the Malaysian flag across the Causeway. We will work towards having more award-winning developments both in Malaysia and Singapore,” she added.
Various SDB developments, namely Hijauan on Cavenagh (Singapore), Park Seven (KLCC), 20trees (Melawati), Dedaun (Ampang) and the River Rehabilitation project on Sungai Satu, adjacent to By The Sea (Batu Ferringhi, Penang), have participated at the global level of the World FIABCI Prix d’Excellence awards. In total, the SDB Group has since garnered 1 gold and 4 silver awards at this coveted international competition throughout the years.
FIABCI is the French acronym for ‘International Real Estate Federation’, which recognises excellence in real estate internationally.
To date, the SDB Group has 14 projects in Malaysia and 8 in Singapore, respectively.
Presently, the Group is embarking on the SqWhere mixed development project in Sungai Buloh comprising a 31-storey SOVO (or “Small Office, Virtual Office”) Tower, 27-storey Serviced Apartment Tower and Retail Offices, all linked directly to the Kampung Selamat MRT station.
In Cheras, the SDB Group has also started construction of its Una@Peel Serviced Apartments.
Across the Causeway, the SDB Group has launched two new projects; namely Jui Residences, a freehold condominium along Serangoon Road and built to incorporate a heritage site, and OneDraycott, a 64-unit residential development located in District 10 and within walking distance to Singapore’s famous Orchard Road.
