CapitaLand wins Cityscape award for Sichuan school project

CapitaLand has won the Cityscape Best Developer Award for its corporate social responsibility efforts.

The project that clinched the award for the developer was its Muchuan Green Hope School in China’s Sichuan Province.

It was selected for showing outstanding social responsibility towards the community and the environment.

Co-funded by the CapitaLand Hope Foundation and the local authorities in China, the CapitaLand Muchuan Green Hope School is being built to replace a school that was damaged in last year’s earthquake in Sichuan Province.

The project involves building classrooms, student dormitories, multi-purpose facilities, play areas for the children and a kitchen.

Construction of the CapitaLand Muchuan Green Hope School is currently underway and will be completed in June this year.

CapitaLand said there is a total of 10 CapitaLand Hope Schools in China, including a temporary one in Sichuan Province that was built to provide for the immediate education needs of children affected by the earthquake.

The Cityscape Awards for Real Estate in Asia recognise excellence in architecture and design for projects in the region.

It was given out in conjunction with the three-day Cityscape Asia conference held in Singapore from May 19.

Cityscape is the world’s largest business-to-business real estate event brand.
