Desa ParkCity, First Malaysian Winner of Asia Pacific Prestigious Development Award

Desa ParkCity Kuala Lumpur, the masterplan or signature township by Malaysia-based property developer, Perdana ParkCity Sdn. Bhd has been selected as one of the 13 regional winners of the coveted 2022 Urban Land Institute Asia Pacific Awards (ULI APAC Awards) for Excellence.

ULI APAC Awards are renown as one of Asia Pacific’s most prestigious awards in the development community. Hence, this milestone achievement marks Desa ParkCity as the first Malaysian entry to be shortlisted and awarded from the ULI APAC Awards for Excellence programme.

This year’s winners were selected from a competitive pool of 64 submissions by a professional jury of leading experts, where they were evaluated based on their superior development efforts in the private, public, and non-profit sectors.

The winners from this year’s programme were announced at the 2022 Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence Virtual Ceremony organised on 21 June 2022.

“It is an honour and privilege for our entire organisation to have been the first Malaysian property development selected to win this award. This is a recognition of all the effort, aspiration and vision put in by everyone in our company, together with all the support received from everyone involved. The win is also a benchmark for ParkCity’s innovative developments and its excellence in creating spaces for life, alongside various holistic aspects of sustainability, safety, health and wellbeing, and the environment,” Datuk Joseph Lau, Group CEO of ParkCity Group commented on the award.

Known for its tranquil, green, and sustainable living environment, Desa ParkCity is ParkCity’s flagship masterplan township. ParkCity constantly strives to improve the quality of life of its residents through meaningful developments with aspects of liveability, connectivity, and safety, and the community is already benefiting from this ESG approach as the township is fully walkable, safe and sociable. It is now well-known as the most liveable community in Kuala Lumpur.

ParkCity’s ethos is defined by its core pillars of Family, Neighbourhood, Community, Connectivity & Convenience, and the various developments are designed to create a sense of place that roots modern living in nature.

This same DNA has also been injected into its 190-acre master-planned ParkCity Hanoi in Vietnam and the 551-acre Marina ParkCity in Miri, Sarawak.

Over the past 20 years, ParkCity’s innovative ideas, extraordinary vision and impeccable quality have been recognised through a number of award wins and accolades, including the prestigious FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards.

“Winning this latest award will further propel the ParkCity branding into the international arena and at the same time, boost our employees’ and our community’s morale. However, we will not rest on our laurels, but continue to innovate, pushing the boundaries through improved infrastructural approaches and operations, in order to better serve the community and deliver quality projects that we are renowned for,” Datuk Lau added.

Desa ParkCity is currently adding another development to its multi award-winning township with its upcoming project, Noora @ Desa ParkCity, which is expected to launch towards third quarter this year.
