MANILA – Century Properties Group Inc said it will complete four projects in Metro Manila this year.

Over 90 percent of the 17,000 square meters of the retail center is leased out to more than 100 tenants, including a high-end supermarket, premium cinemas, café, restaurants, boutiques and specialty stores.

By yearend, Century Properties will turn over more than 500 clinic suites at Centuria Medical Makati, a 28-storey outpatient IT-medical arts facility also at Century City.

“Century Properties opened 2014 riding high with a record pre-sales growth, and we intend to keep this momentum going with the same aggressive and impassioned approach we took in the past year. The results were tremendous so we expect to perform no less in 2014,” Antonio said.
