Century Properties Group Inc. (CPG) recently disclosed plans to develop a modern, integrated township in Batulao, Batangas, southwest of Metro Manila. Pegged to uplift the concept of "New Urbanism," the Batulao township is rooted in the experience of nature amid modern, urban conveniences.
At 142 hectares, the pending development will feature leisure, residential, retail, and recreational components, offering amenities like a country club, a man-made beach cove, and a lake for the residential section of the town.
CPG's chief operating officer for Hospitality and Project for Batulao, Tim Hallet, stated that the township will "further expand [CPG's] offering to the market and will give immense value to our shareholders."
Phase 1 of the development consists of 36 hectares with a retail village, a market square, a commercial hub, residential buildings with ground-level retail amenities, and low-rise condominiums and villas.
Designed with crystal lagoons, the exclusive country club will feature a number of facilities for leisure, recreation, relaxation, sports, and others besides, with a spa, a chapel, a specialty restaurant, a banquet hall, a pavilion, sports courts, and swimming pools, with other water sport amenities.
“Our Batulao project will be a new destination, enticing visitors to stay for a meal, a weekend, or permanently as a resident," said Hallet, citing that "the boundaries of Mega Manila are now expanding to suburban communities promoting life in harmony with nature."
“We look forward to announcing more details of our Batulao project soon and our new and exciting developments in 2015,” Hallet stated.
