Re-evaluating the built environment

Weekly Industry News

Stay-at-home orders owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, locally known as the Movement Control Order (MCO), have made many appreciate the importance of a home. It is no longer just a roof over our heads that offers safety and comfort — it has become a remote office, a homeschool as well as a recreational and interactive space. The outbreak earlier this year led to the restriction of movement in most parts of the world, and it is anyone’s guess how much longer we will be required to spend most of our lives indoors. As a result, many are rethinking what they want from their living space.

City & Country asked the heads of companies ranked among the top 10 of The Edge Malaysia Top Property Developers Awards 2019 for their views on what the new normal would look like for our built environment and the trends and strategies they plan to adopt. IOI Properties Group Bhd, UOA Group Bhd and IGB Bhd declined to participate in the opinion poll.

Meanwhile, submissions for The Edge Malaysia Top Property Developers Awards 2020 are open. All non-listed property developers are encouraged to submit the form and supporting documents for consideration while all listed companies are automatically in
the running.
