March 10, 2012 § 2 Comments

CAMELLA, the biggest home builder in the Visayas, is up for a much brighter and fruitful 2012.

In Iloilo, in its bid to give the Ilonggos the best of everything, Camella will soon bring in essential amenities closer to homes.

Sen. Manny Villar, the founder of Camella, vowed to make Savannah, a Camella residential master-planned community encompassing Oton, Pavia and San Miguel in Iloilo, a new city and eventually, make Iloilo again the Queen City of the South.

“We want this to be different and at the same time similar to Iloilo City. We avoid traffic in the city, so we’re building our own city,” Villar said.

He furthered that Camella will bring shopping closer to homes, thus they hope to put up at least 5 Camella malls in the country this year. Here in Iloilo, the construction of Camella mall which will rise in an about 6 thousand sq. meters lot area will start within this year.

And in addition to the school and the world class, FIFA standard football field in Savannah, a church will also be put up soon.

With the existence soon of new all-important amenities, Villar also considers inviting business processing outsourcing companies in the area hoping to generate jobs among Ilonggos.

He said that eventually there will be BPOs in Camella here right after the commercial have started.

On the other hand, Villar believes that Ilonggos being prudent, diligent and industrious deserve the best with the type of housing Camella builds. He added that Camella will put up another 200 homes this year in Savannah, the largest and most successful master-planned community in Western Visayas.

Savannah is also proud on embarking on a community-wide environment campaign that feature rain water collection to nourish its community’s green spaces and lush landscaping, a zero waste management program with benefits that cascades down to every homes, organic farming through de-composting, and soon, the utilization of solar panels to power street lamps and to partially support the energy needs of its expensive community clubhouses and common areas.

With Savannah, you and your family will definitely have that one of a kind haven made to make your life easier and comfortable.

Camella Northpoints Carribean Evening

February 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

It was a magical feeling driving through the winding road towards the clubhouse, with hundreds of tiny Christmas lights overhead, hiding the clouds in the  night sky.

The invitation suggested that media partners come in Carribean outfit, only to find out there was no hint of any Carribean party, but just a simple get-together to show their appreciation for the harmonious relationship with the Camella staff headed by Davao City and Tagum General Manager Marlon Escalicas.

The popular “Pinoy Henyo” game broke the ice for the hosts and the media friends who braved the rain on December 16, when there was an early advisory that weather would be bad and the sea, rough.

But the hosts from Camella North Point made sure we were kept warm with the games and the raffle prizes – three BlackBerry Phones and a laptop for major prizes, showing the media partners how much their job in writing about the new developments in the housing and real estate sector was appreciated, one of the sectors responsible for putting Davao in the map as one of the 87 most liveable places in the world.

Young and energetic people like Camella Tagum Marketing Head Sheila Lara, Camella Davao Marketing Head Anna Mae Dela Pena, Davao Admin Head Vivien Mandin, CDO Admin Team Leader Wendy Pamisa, Stephanie Palanca and Bellalou Comidoy of Marketing Staff Davao, Carlo Refamonte of Tagum Marketing Staff and Princess Ticon of Admin Staff Davao gave the Davao Media Partners a very enjoyable Christmas Party and something to treasure in the months to come as we continue with our tasks in writing about current developments and programs of Camella North Point in Davao and the Mindanao Region.

Camella’s Mintal project goes full blast this year

February 9, 2012 § Leave a comment

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

CAMELLA Communities, a subsidiary of the country’s largest homebuilder, Vista Land & Lifescapes, will go full blast in its development of its newest subdivision project in Mintal, Davao City.

Camella will undertake this year a massive housing construction at the most strategic location in Mintal, right along the national highway and near major locators in the area, such as Philippine Science High School, UP Mindanao, Immaculate Conception Church, Iglesia ni Kristo, Mintal Public Market, among others.

It is a short ride or driving distance to schools such as Ateneo de Davao University Grade School Campus, Philippine Women’s College, Mindanao Christian College & Seminary, and other private schools in the Matina area.

It is also a few minutes’ drive to major malls and departments stores, such as the NCCC Mall, SM City Davao, Makro, and Centerpoint, and public utilities such as Matina Wet Market, Seventh Day Adventist Hospital, and Davao Doctors Hospital.

This project promises to be another bestselling for Camella with its mid-priced range within reach of many homebuyers, and will transform this part of uptown Davao’s once-sleepy landscape into a vibrant and breathtaking vista.

Camella’s Mintal project will be a Mediterranean-inspired, 15-hectare development of affordable residential homes spread over nine hectares of property, while the remaining three hectares will be allocated for commercial development.

This residential project will have two storey homes, bungalow houses, and low priced town homes with well-appointed amenities like clubhouse, swimming pool, open parks and playgrounds, tree-lined pathways, grand entrance gate with CCTV hooked up to its 24/7 security system, perimeter fence and shuttle service.

It will be a convenient and attractive residential location for those looking to live outside the hustle and bustle and congestion of downtown Davao, because Camella will be creating not only affordable and quality houses but a masterplan development that will become a self-sustaining community, like a little uptown city.

“Not only that, the homeowners will get to enjoy their own commercial area that will complement the residential development,” Marlon B. Escalicas, Camella Communities Davao general manager, said.

Escalicas said plans for the commercial area include a mall or a supermarket, with commercial shops and other establishments which will provide a convenient and comfortable lifestyle that will enhance the feel good living of its homeowners.

For more information, call or visit Camella Communities at their new offices at 2/F Delgar Building (in front of Camella Northpoint), JP Laurel Ave., Bajada, Davao City, telephone numbers (082) 222-0963, (082) 222-5221, (082) 222-5223 (telefax) and 0917-8576572. (PR)

Camella to launch Northpoint 3rd tower

February 9, 2012 § Leave a comment

Thursday, March 10, 2011


CAMELLA Communities is set to unveil the third tower of Northpoint, its landmark condo development in Davao, in a highly-anticipated launching event on March 26.

The keen interest on the newest addition to the Northpoint towers is set off by the success of the first two buildings, Manchester and Birmingham, which have enjoyed brisk sales since they were launched.

“We are very pleased with the response of homebuyers to Northpoint. Manchester has been fully sold out, and Birmingham is close at its heels. To meet the growing number of homebuyers waiting to get their new homes in Northpoint, the third tower will be launched very soon,” said Marlon B. Escalicas, Camella Communities Davao GM.

Northpoint’s third building will make history of sorts in the real estate industry, as it is going to be the first residential condominium in Davao that will be ten-storey high. It will face the grand clubhouse and provide a spectacular sight as it towers among the imported Caribbean pine trees currently growing around the condo property.

The condo community is filled with these all-weather pine trees shipped all the way from New Zealand to Davao City to provide a fresh, cool, pine-scented ambiance to Northpoint. Camella is set to transplant another P2 million worth of these pine trees, to make Northpoint a green haven like no other in north Davao’s urban landscape.

Northpoint has a verdant surrounding filled with preserved ancient Acacia trees, colorful pocket gardens, open parks, and well-manicured lawns complementing the robustly growing pine trees. Even the condo buildings have their own indoor gardens that provide a touch of nature within its concrete walls.

Like all other Camella developments, Northpoint will have all the urban amenities of a modern and elegant residential condominium. The clubhouse, Wakefield Manor, stands regal with its British-colonial architecture, overlooking a wide swimming pool filled with salinated water. Having a salt-water swimming pool is healthier and safer to swim in as it needs much less chlorine for its maintenance.

Wakefield Manor has a fitness gym, al fresco café, multi-function room, cabanas with grill pits, and playground. Wi-Fi connection is available at the clubhouse as well as each of the condo units which are also cable-ready. The whole property is secured with concrete perimeter fence and 24/7 security system equipped with CCTV.

Northpoint gives homeowners the best living proposition that is unmatched by any other condo development in the city. Its location alone is a big selling factor, being situated at the junction of J.P. Laurel Ave. and Buhangin Road, two major thoroughfares at the heart of the rising urban growth area north of Davao.

Northpoint is the first vertical project in Mindanao of Camella Communities, a subsidiary of the largest homebuilder in the country, Vista Land and Lifescapes. For more information on Camella Northpoint and other Camella communities, visit the Camella office at the 2nd floor of Delgar Building, J. P. Laurel Ave., Davao City (right across Camella Northpoint), call 222.0963, 222-5221, 222-5223 and 0917-857.6572, send your e-mail to, or log on to (PR)
