Placemaker Asean Awards 2021

12 November 2021 – Kwai Chai Hong brings home the coveted Placemaker Awards Asean 2021 - as the "Best Placemaker in the NGO" category.

This award recognition is the brainchild of Nextdor Property Communications, a placemaking consultancy, and Think City, a social purpose organisation focused on urban rejuvenation.

Our heartiest congratulations to the team at Kwai Chai Hong for their success in rejuvenating the area. In the spirit of placemaking, the planning, design and management of public spaces that create vibrant communities are vital for cities undergoing rapid urbanisation such as Kuala Lumpur. Kwai Chai Hong stands out in its ethos, and we hope other placemakers in Southeast Asia will be inspired to initiate similar regeneration projects in spaces that have significant cultural and heritage value.
