A CI­TYSCAPE ON THE RISE

Sun.Star Davao - - THE YEARENDER - BY GILFORD A. DOQUILA / Reporter

Davao City's eco­nomic progress is ev­i­dent with mush­room­ing of high-rise build­ings through­out the city.

As the city em­braces ur­ban de­vel­op­ment, the sky­scrapers of Davao city con­tinue to rise with ho­tels and res­i­den­tial tow­ers popp­ping up in or­der to ac­com­mo­date more visitors and guests in the city.

From Matina all the way to Lanang, res­i­den­tial tow­ers and ho­tels dot the high­ways. Th­ese are not only be­ing de­vel­oped by Manila or Cebu-based de­vel­op­ers but also lo­cal de­vel­op­ers.

This year a num­ber of new high-rise projects in the city have been an­nounced while ex­ist­ing projects have al­ready made milestones.

Among the projects that will soon rise in Davao City is the The Res­i­dences at Azuela Cove - North Tower. The 21-storeys high pre­mium res­i­den­tial tower in Lanang marks Ay­ala Land Pre­mier's en­try to Davao City.

"The North Tower is a low-den­sity, all-suite tower with only 70 res­i­dences. With the ex­cep­tion of the pent­house level, each floor is com­prised of only four units. Th­ese are three-bed­room homes with vary­ing lay­outs to suit dif­fer­ent needs and sen­si­bil­i­ties," Ay­ala Land Pre­mier said in a state­ment.

Mean­while, 202 Peak­lane by An­chor Land Hold­ing is eyed to ad­dress the grow­ing em­ploy­ment in the city, and the grow­ing the num­ber of stu­dents flock­ing in the city. In an in­ter­view last Oc­to­ber, An­chor Land Hold­ings pres­i­dent Elizabeth Ven­tura said, “With the name alone ‘Peak­lane' we want to be­lieve that this area of C.M. Recto is a mod­ern lane in the city."

San­tos Land De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (SLDC), a homegrown de­vel­oper, has bro­ken ground its first ver­ti­cal pro­jectts -- the Ivory Res­i­dences Con­do­minium and Ob­sid­ian Suites Ho­tel -- in J.P. Lau­rel St., Ba­jada, Davao City.

Launched last Oc­to­ber 6, 2017, the projects will rise on a 4,700 sq. me­ters area. The Ivory Res­i­dences is an 18-storey tower with 330 units (of var­i­ous sizes) and has 120 park­ing units spread out over three floors.

The Ob­sid­ian Suites, on the other hand, is a 10-storey busi­ness ho­tel with a roof deck. It will fea­ture some 90 rooms rang­ing from su­pe­rior, deluxe, ju­nior and ex­ec­u­tive, themed suites. The projects are eyed to be fin­ished by 2020.

Dusit Thani Res­i­dence Davao an en­vi­sioned five-star res­i­den­tial and ho­tel de­vel­op­ment will house 174 spa­cious full ser­vice res­i­den­tial units and 120 ho­tel rooms. The ho­tel will rise at J.P Lau­rel, Lanang, Davao City and will give a view of the Davao Gulf. The pro­ject is set to be com­pleted some­time this year or early 2019. The pro­ject is led by the Torre Lorenzo De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (TDLC).

Homegrown de­vel­oper Aeon Lux Prop­er­ties an­nouned that it is de­vel­op­ing an­other multi-bil­lion-peso pro­ject —- the Aeon Bleu.

The pro­ject will be com­posed of five resort-in­spired res­i­den­tial tow­ers with 1,600 units.

How­ever, it is not only ho­tels and res­i­den­tial tow­ers that are dom­i­nat­ing the sky­line of the city. With the launch­ing of dif­fer­ent town­ships in dif­fer­ent parts of the city, we will also soon see the rise of of­fice tow­ers.

With th­ese fu­ture ris­ing de­vel­op­ments, Davao will def­i­nitely rise to higher peaks as sky­scrapers con­tinue to dom­i­nate its ci­tyscape.
