It has been a few years already since the “condo boom” in Cebu started. Ten years ago, the only notable condominiums in Cebu are the Citylight’s Tower in Nivel, Park Towers in the Cebu Business Park, and the Winland Towers in Capitol Site. Slowly but surely more and more developers are building condos in Cebu. The condo boom was spearheaded by local developers like J. King and Sons, and Primary Homes. It did not take long for the big Manila developers to notice.
The past 3 years marked the entry of bigger developers in the market. Robinsons Land Corporation entered the market via Amisa, a condominium resort development in Mactan. Filinvest Land offered Grand Cenia, One Oasis, and Amalfi Oasis to the Cebu Market. Ayala Land has Avida, 1016 Residences, and Sedona Parc. Federal recently entered the condo market with its Marco Polo Residences. The local players are not to be outdone with the introduction of projects like Baseline Residences, Asia Premier Residences, City Loft, One Pavilion Place, Horizons 101, and many more.
The condo pie is Cebu is getting bigger every year and the Cebuanos are accepting condominiums as viable piece of real estate and investment. The recent years also marked the increase of the Cebu population due to the availability of jobs in the island. The call center industry is one of the major growth industries in the country and most major players in the Philippine call center industry have branches in Cebu. Cebu is also home to the best schools outside Metro Manila. Cebu schools have been consistent in producing board topnotchers. With the increase of population and the improvement of the buying power of the middle class, the demand for real estate naturally increases. Most of the subdivision projects now are located in the north and south of Cebu like Minglanilla, Consolacion, Talisay, Lilo-an, and Mactan. The projects in the city of Cebu are most likely townhouses or condominiums.
Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) has decided to launch its first condominium offering in Cebu City. The Azalea Place is a project under the Robinsons Residence brand. Robinsons has built many condominiums in Metro Manila specifically in Ortigas Center and in Taguig. It is known for its mixed use developments that allow condo dwellers to live, work, play, and shop in one setting. Typically, a project by Robinsons Residences is close to business centers, malls, and schools. Azalea Place is no different.
Azalea Place is 25-story project located in Gorordo Avenue, Cebu City. It is just a few meters away from the University of the Philippines Cebu Campus. The location is just a few minutes drive to Ayala Center Mall, I.T. Park, Cebu Doctor’s Hospital, and the Cebu Business Park. Azalea Place is along public transport routes so it is not hard to commute to and from this new condo.
Azalea Place gives buyers a lot of choices. Prospective buyers can choose between a studio, 1-Bedroom, and 2 Bedroom units. One can even ask to merge units if needed. There are also options for balconies and parking spaces.
The new project of Robinsons Residences does not lack in amenities. The condo will house retail units in the ground floor. It will have a comprehensive business center facilities including Audio-Visual room, Library/wifi-room, and conference room that will make work closer to home. Since life is not all about work and study, Azalea Place has its share of recreational facilities like swimming pool, spa pool, gym, and a Japanese-inspired gazebo.
Azalea Place is perfect for start-up families that would want to be near schools and work. The rental potential for the project is excellent owing to its strategic location. The condo is very near major malls, business centers, schools, and first class medical facilities.
The condominium is set to be completed in the second quarter of 2015. With this in mind, Robinsons Residences offer No-Spot down payment schemes with the DP spread out over 44 months without interest. You can actually start paying for a studio unit for as low as Php 10,000 a month ($240).
