WITH condominium projects sprouting in the middle of the city, a development company is expanding an existing project for those who still prefer to live within the city but not in high-rise homes.
Camella Cebu held the groundbreaking ceremony for the model house of 24 new townhouse units at the Courtyards in Pasadena, an extension of its Pasadena community in Guadalupe, Cebu City.
Camella Cebu north general manager Myra Lynn Gilig said that aside from the exclusivity of a small community, some clients still want the convenience of living in a house with a small garden and open spaces.
She said the Courtyards at Pasadena addresses this, as it is just five minutes away from the city center.
Gilig said this was developed as a response to many inquiries about projects that are closer to the city, as most house and lot packages being offered these days are now located outside of Cebu City.
The 24 new units will be in addition to the 39 existing units at the Pasadena.
After the model house is completed, Gilig said they will complete the roads and amenities by the second half of the year.
The prices of units range from P4 million to P9 million, with corner units and units facing open spaces priced higher.
Gilig added that power lines and other connections are underground. Amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool and pocket park while the village has closed circuit television surveillance and is managed by a professional property manager to oversee security, landscaping and other homeowner concerns.
Gilig said they have many buyers who come from other provinces and are looking to buy second homes for their children who are studying in Cebu.
Gilig was joined by Camella Cebu south general manager Jasmin Flor Alviola, production head engineer Aireen Sarsaba and architect Christina Goico of G+M Builders.
