MANILA, Philippines – What makes 10 years special? At 10, pigtails give way to cascading curls, fermented grapes become fine wine, surviving design earn the right to be called retro. At 10, there is a substantial past to look back to and the promise of a future to look forward to. At 10, Savannah grows bigger, better and stronger.
Celebrating 10 years of partnership with the people of Iloilo in their bid to fulfill their dream of owning a home as well as prominence in Iloilo’s real estate business, the grand bash carried the theme “Savannah 10 @ 2010: Bigger, Better and Stronger.” It defined in three words the continued commitment to provide unparalleled housing development in the region.
The event began with a citywide motorcade followed by a Mass. A program was held, with tribal dance numbers to entertain the crowd. A beautifully crafted photo mosaic was unveiled along with the opening of an exhibit by local artists. The day ended with the Savannah Night Bazaar, a food festival and some entertainment provided by top local bands and Backroom’s Laugh Out Loud comedians.
What began as a vision of a pioneering, master-planned community in the area has, in 10 short years, grown into the grandest urban central in Western Visayas. Savannah, located across three barangays — Oton, Pavia and San Miguel — in Iloilo has emerged as the most sought-after address of the region.
Savannah’s sprawling 300-hectare development is inspired by the largest and most picturesque colonial city of the state of Georgia. Filled with the finest specimens of the architecture of the American South, this inspiration has been translated into four enclaves: Crest, Trails, Glades and Glen, each one offering a unique interpretation of the architecture and customized to suit the different lifestyles and varied needs of the residents. There are also home choices for buyers looking for the most practical solution to owning a home with Lessandra, a townhome development of Camella.
Lessandra Heights in Iloilo opened in the last quarter of 2010. Also set to open are two new enclaves, Orchard and Pine Grove, which will continue the phenomenal growth of the massive development. Likewise, Savannah offers house and lot packages that give homeowners more flexibility to build more spacious homes within their financial means. Rates range from P3,800 to P5,200 per square meter for lot-only packages, P734,000 to P1.2 million for townhomes, P1.3 to P2.6 million for affordable packages, and P2.6 to P5.5 million for mid-cost packages.
Complementing the Savannah lifestyle is a host of amenities such as a clubhouse, swimming pool, gym, day care center, its very own Georgia International Academy, lush parks and 24-hour security and CCTV cameras on all the four existing enclaves. The community is just 15 minutes away from the Iloilo airport and other key establishments in the area, making it truly a prime location that is accessible to all.
Savannah’s accessibility will be further enhanced with the opening of new direct transport routes or shuttle services from the property to Molo Plaza, Jaro Plaza, Plaza Libertad and the People’s Terminal in Ungka Pavia.
”Savannah is truly a vision come alive,” said Camella president Jerylle Luz C. Quismundo. “Ten years ago, no one would have thought that something this massive and grand could rise from that site. But Savannah is here. It is a testament to the quality of living the citizens of Iloilo enjoy. It is the Filipino dream and our vision come to life. And at 10 years, we are still growing!”
Indeed, the phenomenal growth is far from slowing down. In the next 10 years, Savannah envisions to complete the next monumental addition to the community — a modern, mixed-used development consisting of BPO hubs, commercial districts, soccer field and other sports facilities, verdant swathes of open spaces, and a church which will start construction this 2011 — creating a model community in the forefront of modern sustainability.
Savannah is a development of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc., the country’s largest home builder. Camella is one of Vista Land’s home developers with over 35 years of experience. It has built more than 200,000 homes through 87 projects and is maintaining a strong presence in Mega Manila and 19 other key provincial destinations and 44 cities and municipalities, while aggressively expanding to other regions.
