MANILA – Century Properties on Tuesday said it has completed and turnover of the third tower at Azure Urban Resort Residences in Parañaque City.

In a statement, the listed property developer owned by former ambassador Jose Antonio said 98 percent or over 4,000 of Azure’s launched units had been pre-sold, with about 800  units left three years since the project formally launched in 2010.

Azure’s central amenity space — the Paris Beach Club and the first phase of the Azure Beach — are also complete and will officially open in the middle of this month.

The first two towers of Azure called Rio and Santorini delivered a combined 1,700 units in 2013. The third Azure tower, St. Tropez, will turn over close to 600 units this month.

The completion of Azure’s first three buildings represents 36 percent of the total units of the entire beach-themed project.

“The Azure’s strength lies in its delivery of a permanent residence within a beach resort environment. Filipinos all over the world fully embraced the concept, because to us, life by the beach provides a relaxing and rewarding experience. We are proud to say that the Azure residents will fully experience this unique development concept – a new benchmark that the industry will see for the first time – very soon,” Century Properties chief operating officer John Victor R. Antonio said.

All towers at the Azure are named after the world’s most popular beach destinations. Apart from Rio and Santorini, the other towers are St. Tropez, Positano, Miami, Maldives, Maui, Boracay, and Bahamas.

The Paris Beach Club, one of the centerpieces of Azure, was designed to the specifications of international celebrity and style icon Paris Hilton.

The three-level beach club was completed recently, with cleaning works and testing of the facilities already on its final stages. Hilton is scheduled to return to Manila to inaugurate the beach club.

The first phase of the Azure Beach is also complete and undergoing final testing. This one-of-a-kind beach facility features fine beach sand, simulated ocean waves, waterfalls and an infinity pool that overflows into two private beach coves located at the opposing ends of the development.

Earlier, Century Properties said it generated P24.6 billion in reservation sales in 2013, representing a 15-percent growth from 2012 and the highest in the company’s 28-year history.
