BOUTIQUE real estate developer Livingsprings Communities Realty and Development Corp. continues to expand its portfolio as it begins construction on 10 Acacia Place in Quezon City.
The 10-storey residential development is sits on a 2,600-square-meter (sq.m.) lot along 21st Avenue in Brgy. Tagumpay, near P. Tuazon Boulevard, Cubao.
Touted as the “lowest-density residential development” in the city, 10 Acacia Place will only have 184 units to provide residents with utmost privacy, comfort and peace.
“Low density means more privacy, more space [and] more security, therefore, more peace,” Monica Therese C. Albert-Lopez, managing director of Livingsprings Communities, said during the unveiling ceremony of the property’s showroom last week.
The 10 Acacia Place will offer studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and premium two-bedroom units with floor areas ranging from 26.75 sq.m. to 56.20 sq.m. The units cost from P2.6 million to P7 million.
Ms. Albert-Lopez, who also designed the project, said that units are masterplanned with flexibility in mind.
“With just a few moves, you will be able to turn a studio into one-bedroom [unit], you will be able to turn one-bedroom [unit] into two, and a two to a three,” she said.
The entire development will feature a Pacific modern aesthetic, with wood finish and glass. According to Ms. Albert-Lopez, wood is part of the identity of Filipinos as a tropical country, while glass brings a lot of light.
“We want everyone here to have that overflowing life experience… That’s why I chose Pacific modern,” she said.
Amenities of 10 Acacia Place will include a swimming pool, play area, lounge, garden, gym, jogging path, gazebos, mediation area, and a function hall. The development will also have a 24-hour security service and RFID exclusive lobby access, and will be equipped with CCTV, automatic fire suppression and emergency power support.
Future occupants of 10 Acacia Place will have easy access to several schools, business centers and leisure facilities. It is just a short distance from the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle Greenhills, University of the Philippines Diliman, and Miriam College. The Gateway Mall and Eastwood Mall could be also reach within minutes from the site.
The 10 Acacia Place broke ground November last year, and is expected to be competed in 2022.
At present, about 30% of the total units has already been pre-sold, said Ms. Albert-Lopez in an interview with BusinessWorld. The company is expecting to sell most of the units this year or by next year, she said.
“Now that the showroom is ready, it’s like we’re seeing our doors are wide open for business,” Ms. Albert-Lopez said.
Asked about the future plans of the company, Ms. Albert-Lopez said that it will continue developing residential communities.
Aside from 10 Acacia Place, Livingsprings Communities’ recent projects include Tres Palmas, a Mediterranean residential multiple-home community located in Taguig City.
