PHIRST PARK Homes Inc. is planning to launch 15 master planned communities in Central Luzon and Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon) within the next five years.
In a statement, the affordable housing unit of Century Properties Group, Inc. (CPG) said it is focused on acquiring land in areas where the government is undertaking flagship infrastructure projects.
“This is a top criterion in our area selection process as it ensures ease of access for our future residents. It also opens more employment and livelihood opportunities for them as major infrastructure sites spur economic growth,” Ricky M. Celis, president of PHirst Park Homes, was quoted as saying in a statement.
PHirst Park Homes is planning to launch new projects in the provinces of Laguna, Bulacan, and Cavite in the near term. This would allow the property firm to take advantage of the growth in the areas where there are several infrastructure projects.
Among these projects are the Skyway Stage 3, the 23-kilometer Manila Metro Rail Transit System Line 7, Bulacan International Airport, Philippine National Railway North 2, the Bulacan Bulk Water Project, and the Cavite Laguna Expressway.
“Such projects are a boon to families who wish to enjoy the lower cost of living in the provinces while maintaining their jobs or businesses in the city centers of Metro Manila,” said Loren Sales, vice president for customer management of PHirst Park Homes.
PHirst Park Homes is the joint venture firm of CPG and Mitsubushi Corporation that caters first home buyers. Currently, it has communities in Tanza, Cavite, and Lipa City, Batangas.
PHirst Park Homes Lipa offers around 1,800 units on a 20-hectare property. It will be developed in three phases, with the first phase to include about half of the total housing units.
Among its amenities are a village clubhouse, swimming pools for adults and children, an open-air cinema, and playgrounds. This is in keeping with CPG’s concept of a home-in-a-park experience for PHirst Park Homes Lipa. — Vincent Mariel P. Galang
