Think globally, live locally in South Forbes

BY 13 February 2019 Uncategorized

To many, living a truly world-class life would require a plane ticket out of the Philippines to the richest nations in the world. That may have been true ten years ago, but head south of Manila and you’ll uncover one place that offers all the luxuries of life without even leaving your own home. Where else can you have an entire golf course as your backyard but in Cathay Land Inc.’s South Forbes?

First introduced in 2004 and occupying 500 hectares of land in the Sta. Rosa – Silang – Tagaytay growth corridor, South Forbes is the country’s largest fully integrated golf resort city. The master-planned township of boutique communities blends close-knit living, leisure, academics, and sports, and brings everything up a notch higher to provide residents with an urban lifestyle unlike any other.

As a golf resort development, one of South Forbes’s most notable elements is the South Forbes Golf and Leisure Club, which features a first-rate 18-hole golf course and offers free membership to all investors. In addition to this, the township boasts of other state-of-the-art amenities like clubhouses, pools, landscaped parks, and an extensive amount of greenery that drives home the point of living amongst nature.

South Forbes also prides itself in offering the best in global architecture. For a home with an Asian flair, choose among their Bali, Tokyo, and Phuket mansions as well as the more affordable Nirwana Bali homes. If European living is your cup of tea, the Chateaux de Paris, the Spanish Villas, and the condominium Scandia Suites might be more up your alley. With the modern Western-inspired Miami community, the design aspect of South Forbes’ residential options comes full circle.

South Forbes also offers other residential options fit for your preferences. If you want to live close to the golf course, choose between the Orient-inspired Golf View Terraces and Sentosa Heights. Those who cherish the convenience offered by smart design and modern technology will enjoy living in the Stanford Suites.

Exclusivity is one of South Forbes’ concerns, and is a claim that they can confidently make to those who value privacy and peaceful living. Aside from being strict when it comes to providing access to the community, the development is also designed to host only up to 500 families.

You don’t need to leave the country to go global. If you want to start living the high life in a truly international community, contact Cathay Land, Inc. at 635-7777, email them at info@southforbes.com, or visit www.southforbes.com.

In a statement recently released by residential condominium developer and BPO proprietor Megaworld, the real estate company is eying an expansion of its Makati Central Business District (CBD) residential condo portfolio in the next three to five years.

“There is a continuing expansion of multinational companies and growth of the expatriate population in the country,” Megaworld Makati CBD head of sales and marketing Eugene Lozano explained. Citing the increase of BPO and offshoring companies in the Philippines, he continued: “The demand for residential condominiums in the Makati CBD remains high. Makati City, especially the CBD area, remains to be the top choice among local and foreign condo buyers and investors.”

Megaworld and its subsidiary, middle-income residential developer Empire East, presently have 18 completed buildings in Makati, most of which are right in the central business district. Megaworld is in the process of finishing four pre-selling developments, namely the super high-end developments Two Central and Three Central in Salcedo Village, Paseo Heights also in Salcedo Village, and Greenbelt Hamilton in Legaspi Village. In the following years, Empire East will set in motion the development and completion of the four towers comprising San Lorenzo Place, which will round up the 26 developments.

Asked about the reason behind the strong sales of the aforementioned properties, Lozano replied, “Our residential condominiums in Makati are within the prime locations of the central business district, not in the outskirts of the city. So we tell our buyers, ‘why get a Makati condo away from the CBD if you can have everything here already?’”

He added, “At the end of the day, location is key. Condos in Makati CBD definitely provide higher return of investment if you decide to rent it out or re-sell in the future compared to those outside the CBD.”

Megaworld assures that they will deliver only high-quality residential condominiums by working with some of the country’s best contractors, such as EEI Corporation and Datem, both of which have “AAA” accreditation. In addition, the real estate developer has tapped the likes of international design firm Gettys for many of their projects, and has also consigned world-famous brands like Hansgrohe, Kohler, and Elba for their super high-end developments’ bathroom and kitchen fixtures.

Units in Megaworld’s high-end developments go for Php 120,000-139,000/sqm, whereas super high-end units start at Php 140,000/sqm. The real estate company predicts a total sales number of Php 12 billion from the four pre-selling projects alone, noting that all Two Central units are spoken for, while the other three have already passed the half mark in sold units.
