Camella Homes eyes expansion in Mindanao

Sunday, March 18, 2012

CAMELLA is seeking more expansion in Mindanao this year.

In a press conference Saturday at the Mandaya Hotel Davao, Cnythia Villar said the family business will be expanding its coverage in Valencia, Marbel in South Cotabato and Ozamis City for this year.

Villar said that in Mindanao, they already have Camella communities in General Santos City, Butuan City, Cagayan De Oro City, Tagum City and Davao City.

Villar said they will be building low-rise infrastructures in Mindanao catering to most middle-class clients.

The investment for every Camella is amounting to over P100 million, she said.

In Metro Manila, she said they have high-rise and low-rise buildings catering to upper and middle-class families.

Based on her assessment, the middle-class families in the city are not yet ready for high-rise condominiums. (ALC)

The Labial family of Cagayan de Oro was lucky enough to be a beneficiary of a trip to Boracay and a brand new house and lot from Camella in an episode of TV5’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Philippines. The show is hosted by Paolo Bediones along with the makeover team composed of Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Divine Lee, Tristan Jovellana and Marilen Faustino-Montenegro.

Instead of just getting a makeover of their house located in a flood-risk barangay in Cagayan de Oro, the family was given a brand new house and lot at Lessandra subdivision in the uptown portion of the city.

The said show on TV5 is a local franchise of the American reality series Extreme Makeover Home Edition which is produced by Endemol, the same company that brought Big Brother, which is locally franchised by another television network, ABS-CBN.

Paolo Bediones himself was previously the host of another reality show franchise, Survivor Philippines, which airs on another TV network, GMA7, and is now hosted by Richard Gutierrez. Another reality show, a local franchise of The Amazing Race, is set to be aired on TV5 and will be hosted by their new talent, Derek Ramsey, which has just crossed over from ABS-CBN’s fence. It seems that the country’s TV network wars have elevated from soap operas to reality shows!
