Century Properties’ 1st tourism project rakes in P1.7B sales

Century Properties Group Inc., has generated an initial P1.7 billion in sales from its tourism-related project in Batangas just two months into pre-selling. 

Robbie Antonio, Century Properties managing director, said the reception was better than expected with the project’s initial phase seen to generate P19 billion in sales in total.  

A 142-hectare lot near the foothills of scenic Mount Batulao in Nasugbu, Batangas, the site is the company’s latest foray into the leisure and tourism segment. 

The company has allotted 54 hectares for phase one being developed into a livable art park called Batulao Artscapes said to be the first of its kind. 

Batulao Artscapes is a mixed tourism development with a retirement village component featuring designer homes from Revolution Precrafted, world-class village-exclusive vacation amenities, a man-made beach with clubhouse and a lake with a charming wedding chapel.

“Art cum adventure or ‘artventure’ facilities include a sports park, flavor park, and art park with museums designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects,” Century Properties said in a statement.

Century Properties said Batulao Artscapes will appeal to “families, weekend adventure seekers and active retirees with its relatively cool climate, world-class amenities, and proximity to Metro Manila’s financial district – with only a 1.5 to 2-hour drive from Makati via four access points—through Daang Hari Road towards the scenic Nasugbu-Kaybiang Tunnel, the Star Tollway to Tanauan Exit, the South Luzon Expressway and Cavite Expressway.”

Its appeal will further be enhanced by the soon to be completed 49-kilometer Cavite-Tagaytay-Batangas Expressway (CTBEX) which will cut travel time to nearby Tagaytay City to less than an hour, it said. Construction of CTBEX is expected to start by the first half of 2019.

Batulao Artscapes will showcase a fine collection of ‘livable art’ and created by some of the most revered names in architecture and design.  

“These homes are by Revolution Precrafted, a multi-branded housing company with a collection of limited edition, pre-crafted properties of stunning homes, designer museums, unique popup concepts, and cutting-edge hotels,” Century Properties said.

“Three Filipino names lead the roster for Batulao Artscapes’ first three villages: architect Ed Calma’s Polygonal Successions will make up the Cluster Village. Designer Kenneth Cobonpue’s Hedera Homes will be the main feature of the Commune Village. Budji+Royal Architecture+Design of Budji Layug and Royal Pineda will fill the Collection Village with their Tranche and Facet Homes,” it added.

“The fourth section, called the Curated Village 1, will feature 12 one-of-a-kind homes by international architects and designers, including David Salle + AA Studio for the ‘Billboard Home’, Marcel Wanders for ‘Eden’, Marmol Radziner & Kravitz Design for the ‘Instrumental Home’, Philip Johnson Alan Ritchie Architects for the ‘Modular Glass House’, Elizabeth de Portzamparc for the ‘Butterfly Home’, AFGH for Wallpaper for the ‘We Home’, Studio Libeskind Design for ‘Adaptation II’, and Daphne Guinness for the ‘Daphne Skin Home’,” CPG also said.  

Home prices range from P4 million for a 56-square-meter unit at the Cluster Village to the larger homes at the Curated Village, which start at P17.4 million and come with their own private pool and guest home. 

Century Properties said special assistance to secure a Special Resident Retiree’s Visawill be facilitated for retiree foreign nationals and former Filipino citizens
