Celebrating Raintree at the International Property Awards!

After some very, very late work nights and a short trip to Thailand, we have some big news to share…

We are thrilled to announce that Raintree has been awarded Cambodia’s “Best Office Development” in the 2017 International Property Awards, in association with the Telegraph UK, Grohe and Emirates Airlines. The awards commend world-class standards in development, architecture and design, and we were honoured to represent Cambodia in the Asia Pacific region.

With the awards running for over 20 years and a distinguished judging panel comprised of industry professionals from the British Property Federation through several ‘starchitect’ studios, we are happy to be recognised in such a new market. The awards application involves a lengthy submission process covering architecture, layout, interiors, sustainability, security and innovation. The panel recognised Raintree’s commitment to the community and highlighted it’s collaborative design. Take a look at some of the other developments that made the cut from all over the world here.

The Raintree Team

Welcome to the Raintree Blog!

Raintree Cambodia Exterior

Hi everyone and welcome to the first post on the Raintree blog!

As the construction of Raintree verges on completion we will use this blog to keep you updated during a busy few months which will include our official launch, a great line-up of events at our spectacular rooftop event space - and the opening of some fantastic retail and f+b outlets on the ground floor. As many of you will know, Brown Coffee has already opened its newest store Brown Raintree in the building – a cool, airy and relaxing spot that is already proving hugely popular. We are so proud that one of Cambodia’s most iconic and original brands is our first tenant – not to mention how happy we are that such a great cup of coffee is so close at hand on some of our more sluggish work mornings.

We are also delighted to welcome Poise Mera florist, next door to Brown, whose exquisite floral arrangements really have to be seen to be believed. We could honestly stand and stare in the window for hours – so much better than the latest Netflix box-set!

More tenants will be moving in – both in the retail units and in the office units upstairs – over the next days, weeks and months and we will keep you updated on the new arrivals as they open up shop.

One of the most exciting spaces in our new project is the Canopy, our event space that is nearing completion on the rooftop floor of the building. We are already getting lots of bookings and enquiries regarding the space, which is great as all the feedback is bringing us new ideas and inspiration for how we can transform the space for each event and make sure we add the perfect finishing touches. This weekend, we are thrilled to be making history in the Canopy and inaugurating the space with Startup Weekend's first edition solely focused on education in Cambodia. Startup Weekend Education Phnom Penh will be a mad 54-hours of bringing education startup ideas to life, with a host of education experts as mentors. Drop by to watch some of the action!

Looking forward, for us at least, the event space is all about our launch night in mid-October and we are busy putting together what we hope will be a really memorable celebration. We will have a stellar line-up of international entrepreneurs sharing their passions, a world-class array of cocktails and some amazing food to keep our guests energized for what promises to be a big night out in Phnom Penh!. Watch this space for more details and surprises as the big day gets closer.

Thanks for visiting our website and for reading the blog!
