Before 2014 came to an end, property experts cautioned developers to “focus on great concepts, be service-centric in the postsales process,” and for buyers “to learn about the prices of properties in different locations before deciding on a place.” It goes without saying, however, that developers and buyers are out to have some fun contributing their own share to a dynamic property sector that shows no slowdown in 2015.
Inquirer Property has asked top developers to reveal their flagship projects in 2015. Megaworld, Century Properties and SMDC readily responded.
Century Properties’ six projects
Terrie Fucanan Yu, Century Properties’ vice president for communications, reveals these six projects to be Positano and Miami towers, Niagara and Sutherland towers, Osmeña West tower and Milano Residences, all expected for completion this year.
She explained that “these flagship projects represent the diverse product offerings of Century Properties Group for various price points and markets (from the luxury, middle income to the affordable markets): Positano and Miami towers of Azure Urban Resort Residences in Parañaque City (the fourth and fifth buildings after the first three buildings and Paris Beach Club were completed in 2013-2014); Niagara and Sutherland towers of Acqua Private Residences in Mandaluyong City (the first two of six towers within Acqua); Osmeña West tower at the Residences at Commonwealth in Quezon City (the first tower in an eight-building masterplanned development); and the Milano Residences (the fourth to rise at Century City, a 3.4-hectare integrated community of premium high rises, retail, office and medical outpatient building on Kalayaan Avenue in Makati City.
“Across all these markets, Century Properties has made sure to uphold the fundamental values and DNA of quality, pride of ownership and customer experience,” she said.
Yu described Milano Residences as targeting the luxury market, and features interiors designed by global luxury brand Versace under its interior design brand Versace Home. Acqua Private Residences, targeting the middle-income market and up, is a tropical rainforest-infused development with a retail strip, a country club by the water and other rejuvenating water features, including three majestic waterfalls.
Yu also said that Azure Urban Resort Residences (targeting the affordable to mid markets) features a beach lifestyle concept that residents get to enjoy 365 days a year. It has an expansive manmade beach and resort facilities, plus a beach club designed by the international style icon, Paris Hilton.
Yu described the Residences at Commonwealth (targeting the affordable to mid market) as “a family-oriented community that nurtures the passions of its residents through holistic lifestyle amenities for the sporty and athletic (outdoor boot camp, sports courts), the artistic (arts and crafts studio and music room), the culinary-inclined (kitchen studio), and those who simply seek relaxation (water features and pools, movie theater).”
