Bolton’s The Wharf praised at #Asia Pacific #Property Awards
KUALA LUMPUR: Bolton Bhd’s The Wharf development in Taman Tasik Prima, Puchong won a Highly Commended Award in the mixed-use development category for Malaysia at the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2011, held in conjunction with Bloomberg TV.
It was Bolton’s first attempt at the award, which its logo is recognised as a symbol of excellence throughout the global property industry. Bolton believes that attaining one of these coveted awards means that Bolton is capable of competing against the best within the Asia Pacific property arena.
The Wharf is a 3-in-1 lakefront commercial development situated on a prime 15-acre land offering a mix of residential, business, retail and leisure centre nestled around a 200-acre lake. Components of The Wharf development include boutique showroom offices known as BizWalk, serviced apartments known as The Wharf Residence and a retail mall.
Bolton believes that The Wharf will become the ‘‘Neighbourhood Lifestyle Destination” in Puchong upon completion in 2015. Launched in August 2010, the first component up for sale at The Wharf was BizWalk, featuring 32 blocks of 3-storey offices. With lot sizes of between 25 feet by 75 feet and 39 feet by 75 feet, and prices starting from RM2.2 million, these units are all sold out.
Next month, Bolton would be launching The Wharf Residence serviced apartments that has a built-up size of 818 square feet and 1,125 square feet with the starting price from RM280,000. Bolton’s Executive Director, Chan Wing Kwong, said that the award reaffirms its standing as an established lifestyle property developer.
The judging panel, consisting of more than 60 professionals, was chaired by Lord Bates of Langbaurgh. This year’s judges included: Google UK Account Manager, James Bacon; National Federation of Property Professionals Group Chief Executive, Peter Bolton King; David Dalby of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS); and Mike McNamara of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS).
Over 250 of Asia Pacific’s leading property professionals gathered in Shanghai for the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2011 ceremony. Later this year, the highest scoring winners from the Asia Pacific Property Awards will compete against other winning companies from Europe, Africa, the Americas and Middle East.
The Asia Pacific region has an enviable record of achievements at international level, having scooped seven World’s Best awards in the finals of both 2009 and 2010. No doubt the property industry will be watching and waiting to see if this record number of international wins can be matched or even beaten in 2011.
