To be a professional and highly regarded representative body providing effective leadership in the advancement of the real estate industry.

Our Logo

The logo depicts REDAS as Singapore’s premier business association in the real estate and development industry and an active partner in the transformation of Singapore into a global city.

  • The blue pillar represents development; the heritage of REDAS
  • The green curve, reminiscent of a leaf, expresses the sweeping landscape.         
  • Rising over the green curve, the red sun suggests dynamism and prosperity

Traversing the blue pillar and supporting the red sun, the green curve symbolises the  integration of the natural and built environment. Together, the 3 elements stand for a Hallmark of Quality.

Our Beginning

REDAS has a unique beginning. Founded in November 1958 by a small group of visionary real estate developers who felt the need to band together as a fraternity to raise standards and promote best practices, the Association was then known as the Singapore Land & Housing Developers’ Association.

As the Singapore economy continued to grow, housing developers extended their activities to building industrial, commercial and retail spaces. In 1977, the association changed its name to Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore (REDAS) to further strengthen its foundation of building public trust, improve standards, and promote design quality for the betterment of the real estate industry.


REDAS’ focus on advocating pro-business and championing excellence and sustainable developments in our built environment has firmly entrenched the Association as the leading representative body for the industry, providing a platform for the views of everyone involved in the real estate industry.


REDAS actively engages regulators, policy makers and stakeholders to promote best practices and to support the growth of a vibrant and progressive real estate industry & businesses in Singapore. The Association also organises seminars and courses to strengthen capabilities and competencies of members as well as activities and events to facilitate connection and business opportunities.
