OCIC's accomplishments reflects upon the group's dedication to setting new benchmarks in the real estate sector and always redefining urban living in Cambodia. The group’s story reminisces from the early days of the new millennium, dating back to when OCIC Group was building the first shopping mall in Cambodia with Sorya Mall. Since then, the Group has pioneered building some of the very first townships such as Borey Chamkarmon, Borey Sunway in Toul Kork, Borey Bassac Garden, some of the first high rise condominium, some of the first high rise office building and some of the first satellite cities. Overall, OCIC has been creating opportunities for the early customers households of the Group that have benefited from value creation and asset appreciation. In the meantime, the Group has contributed to creating hundreds of thousands of jobs directly and indirectly.
Winning the ‘Best Developer 2023’ award sheds light in the group’s approach to serve Cambodia's infrastructure improvement through sustainable and holistic planning of real estate developments. This specificity is consistent throughout its diverse portfolio of residential, commercial, and mixed-use developments, showcasing its central focus towards believing in serving the communities it is building.
OCIC Group’s 23-year long track record of delivering transformational mega projects such as Koh Pich, Chroy Changvar Satellite City or Koh Norea, each spanning across several hundred of hectares. These townships districts developments coupled with flagship residential offerings such as Diamond Bay Garden or Chroy Changvar Gardens, showcase OCIC’s significant local footprint and contribution to the real-estate sector of the Kingdom’s fast-growing economy. The Group keeps contributing to create connectivity and mobility, through the infrastructures it is building, such as bridges and roads, serving the everyday transportation needs of millions of Cambodian families.” Thierry Tea adds.
Meanwhile, winning the ‘Best Waterfront Condo 2023’ and ‘Best Condominium Development 2023’ awards for Diamond Bay Garden is an extra feather in the cap in its goal of creating shared value in the modern property development space. Through its design, amenities, and prime location, the group is geared to set new trends further contributing to the real estate sector in the Kingdom.
With its strategic location, the judges were also impressed with Diamond Bay Garden and its architectural soundness, and wide range of amenities, a development that offers a blend of metropolitan cues nestled in the beauty of the great rivers of Mekong and Tonle Sap, providing residents with a worthwhile experience.
