LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu—The Camella Homes and Communities (CHC) has donated P20 million to the Lapu-Lapu City Government as assistance to the city’s ongoing comprehensive drainage plan.

CHC is the developer of Camella Homes in Lapu-Lapu City.

The team-up between CHC and the city will result in the creation of a 4.5-kilometer drainage system that will pass through the Pajac-Maribago Road, from the General Aviation Road leading to the Mactan Circumferential Road, said Myra Gilig of CHC.

Gilig said the drainage system will benefit residents in barangays Pajac, Maribago, Mactan, Basak, Cagodoy, Bankal and Buaya.

She said once the drainage system is in place, it will prevent flooding in the area and will effectively manage the island’s water outflow.

The city will no longer need the services of a septic tank company to vacuum the waste from tanks, she added.

Camella supports P20-M Lapu-Lapu City drainage project

February 9, 2012 § Leave a comment

MANILA, Philippines – On the occasion of Camella’s 20 strong years in the Queen City of the South, the country’s most preferred housing brand with the widest geographic reach, gives back to its long time partner and host province. As a tribute to Cebuanos, Camella spearheaded the improvement of the city’s draining system with assistance from its own contractors and in close coordination with the local officials to ensure that the city’s government’s drainage plan is strictly adhered to. The P20M drainage systemproject is currently underway.

Drainage systems planning, digging and installation of pipes stretch for an approximate length of 4.5 kilometers that passes along the Pajac – Maribago Road, from the General Aviation Road leading to the Mactan Circumferential Road.

“Once completed, the comprehensive drainage system will benefit residents in Lapu-lapu’s neighboring barangays, particularly in Pajac, Maribago, Mactan, Basak, Cagodoy, Bankal and Buaya as well as over 1,000 residents in various Camella projects in the area – as flooding will be prevented in the areas mentioned and will effectively manage the island’s water outflow,” relates Myra Lynn Gilig, general manager of Camella Cebu for North properties.

While rains cannot be prevented, flooding will now be a thing of the past. Diseases and ailments such as malaria, dengue and the like will be reduced to a minimum due to the healthy neighborhood conditions. Canal passageways that will divert the rainwater from surface accumulation will replace the once breeding grounds of mosquitoes. Parents will be especially thankful since dengue cases are on the rise nowadays.

“Camella’s comprehensive drainage system literally and figuratively goes a long way in advocating a softer form of “good governance” within the neighborhood. This consists of setting up the groundwork for the basic infrastructure that has far-reaching positive effects beyond its own area of jurisdiction. This proves that Camella is responsive to the needs of the homeowners and provides linkages to the surrounding subdivisions as well,” said Communities Philippines president, Jerylle Luz C. Quismundo.

Camella is the subsidiary catering to the mid-market segment of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Philippines’ largest homebuilder with 35 years of experience. It has built more than 250,000 homes and maintains a strong presence in Mega Manila and 21 other key provincial destinations.

Camella offers a broad range of home options from luxury to affordable homes. In Lapu-Lapu City, Camella offers Montserrat, a community with refreshing Italian-Mediterranean hues, well-maintained landscape, 24/7 security and strategic location. Committed to the improvement of lives of its residents, Montserrat will soon develop its commercial area.

Set in an elevated area on the gentle sloping hills of Talisay City, Azienda is an Italian inspired community that offers a view of the scenic cityscape and the magnificent Bohol Strait.  About 40 hectares, Azienda has eight enclaves of 2-3 storey homes, grandiose clubhouse with swimming pool, basketball court, landscaped greeneries, shuttle services and beautiful water features.  A commercial center and a church will be developed soon in Azienda, offering its residents a convenient, well-balanced lifestyle.

Camella’s early Christmas treat for Cebuanos

CAMELLA has been deeply entrenched in the development of Mactan in the last two decades.

Tis’ the season of giving once more, as the month of merrymaking looms near.

But while Christmas is still a few months away, it came much earlier for the City of Cebu.

The Queen City of the South, known for its famed Cebuano hospitality and faith, received its early Christmas gift from one of the country’s top developers.

Vista Land and Lifescapes’ Camella Homes, has completed last July a P20-million comprehensive drainage system project in Mactan, Cebu.

The project, which is expected to be turned over before Christmas, is expected to allow for a more effective management of the island’s water outflow and alleviate flooding woes of the city, according to Myra Lynn Gilig, general manager of Camella Cebu for North properties.

“This will really benefit the area where we will have the drainage system. Unnecessary floodings will be avoided; and the streets will be much cleaner, among others,” Gilig said in an interview with the Inquirer.

The project, in particular, will benefit residents from Lapu-Lapu’s neighboring barangays, particularly Pajac, Maribago, Mactan, Basak, Cagodoy, Bankal and Buaya as well as over 1,000 residents in various Camella projects in the area.

“It’s ready for turnover to the city. We’re testing it but we will (turn it over) once we get a go signal from the technical group. We just wanted to make sure that the project will run smoothly,” Gilig added.

P20-M drainage project

The P20-million drainage system project, which was undertaken with the assistance of Camella contractors and in close coordination with the local officials to ensure that government regulations are strictly adhered to, involved the installation of 4.5 kilometers of new pipes along the Pajac-Maribago Road and the General Aviation Road leading to the Mactan Circumferential Road.

The said project is likewise considered as a testament to the continued and strengthened partnership that Camella Homes had built with Cebu City and its people almost after 20 years of putting up its first property in the region.

“Indeed, Camella has been deeply entrenched in the development of Mactan in the last two decades—taking part in creating jobs, building homes and celebrating the abundance of blessings through the local festivals,” Gilig explained.

“This is truly a meaningful undertaking that the people of Cebu will vastly benefit from. The devastation that flooding brings cannot be underestimated. The rising waters not only destroy properties but bring diseases like malaria and dengue in its wake. We are confident that the dangers from these hazards can be eased with the completion of the drainage improvement project,” she further noted.

Enjoying trust, confidence

To date, Camella Homes is enjoying the trust and confidence of most Cebuanos after it made its first venture outside of Metro Manila in this city in 1991. From its Camella Homes projects’ Vista Bella in Mactan and Miramonte in Talamban, the company now has a number of developments to boast of in this region.

“Even after two decades, Camella continues to give back to the place of its roots. Camella’s comprehensive drainage system will literally and figuratively go a long way in advocating a softer form of ‘good governance’ within the neighborhood,” said Jerylle Luz C. Quismundo, president, Camella Communities Philippines.

“This consists of setting up the groundwork for the basic infrastructure that has far-reaching positive effects beyond its own area of jurisdiction. This proves that Camella is responsive to the needs of the homeowners and provides linkages to the surrounding subdivisions as well,” Quismundo concludes.

Camella is the subsidiary catering to the mid-market segment of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Philippines’ largest homebuilder with 35 years of experience. It has built more than 250,000 homes and maintains a strong presence in Mega Manila and 21 other key provincial destinations.
