WITH already six units sold, officials of Camella Homes are hoping their latest development in Mactan will have a market of its own.
Myra Lynn Gelig, Camella North general manager, said the Condo Homes is a new concept that Camella introduced last July to provide condominium-type dwellings that have the same feel as a house and lot unit.
This is the first Camella Condo Homes project in the Visayas, and Gelig said they are looking forward to building more.
The mid-rise project has three floors and one building has just 51 units composed of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom variants. There are also plans for a second building.
Gelig said their latest project is designed to give the owners the “familiar” sense of a home, which is why the building has a few units.
The rooftop has a garden and comes with drying cages for each unit, which owners can also turn into a storage unit.
The front part of the first floor of building also has slots for commercial units while the lower ground level will be made into a parking lot.
“These new units will be like our existing home projects, but in a building,” she said.
Gelig said the two-hectare property and the entire project cost the company some P180 million.
She admitted that their promotions for Filipinos and retirees abroad paid off, with some of them being the first buyers of their units.
Prices range from P1.6 million to P4.5 million and areas from 25 square meters to 72 square meters.
Launched Thursday, the condominium units are being sold as dwellings for the independent professional, the rising entrepreneur, a happy retiree and an active family.
The concept was demonstrated in a fashion show that featured a collection by Dexter Alazas.
Those who reserved units that night were given prizes, from a designer wardrobe by Dexter Alazas to smartphones and tablet computers.
Construction is set to begin in May next year while buyers will be able to move in by June 2013.
