Megaworld Corp. (PSE: MEG) is launching its first residential development inside the 140-hectare Maple Grove township in General Trias, Cavite.
Located along the township’s main six-lane avenue, the 10-storey The Verdin at Maple Grove will integrate environmental sustainability features, complementing the township’s vision as Cavite’s ‘green’ CBD.
The residential tower will be highlighted by its own ‘Sustainability Wall’ in the main lobby, solar-powered outlets in various parts of the outdoor amenity deck, use of recycled and indigenous materials for the pool deck and children’s playground equipment, and the use of energy-generating equipment and machines in the outdoor fitness area.
The Verdin at Maple Grove will offer seven levels of residential units ranging from studio (up to 32 square meters), one-bedroom (up to 51 square meters), and two-bedroom (up to 79 square meters). Select units will have their own lanai, overlooking the scenic green parks and cityscape of the township. The low density, mid-rise tower will only have 140 exclusive units.
It will also have two levels of podium parking and a retail row at the ground level, providing convenient access to its residents.
“Maple Grove will become a sanctuary of urban countryside and sustainable lifestyle. A huge part of the masterplan will be Makati-inspired where green parks and interconnected streets are surrounded by malls, office buildings and residential towers. The Verdin at Maple Grove will be at the center of it all,” says Rachelle Peñaflorida, vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld.
Set to be completed in 2023, The Verdin at Maple Grove, will have an exclusive third-level amenity deck featuring a lap pool with pool deck, children’s pool, leisure and relaxation park, reading nooks, function room, fitness center, outdoor fitness area, daycare center and a playground.
“There will be fresh air to breathe, and enough space to relax and meditate. There will be pocket gardens and areas to commune with nature. And when residents step out of The Verdin, the cafès, restaurants, and retail shops will just be a few steps away,” explains Peñaflorida.
The company is expected to generate around P700-million in sales for this first residential project in the township.
Late last year, Megaworld announced that it is building a 35-hectare ‘Makati-inspired’ business district within the 140-hectare township, offering 363 ‘prime lots’ where companies and businesses can construct their own buildings and towers.
To date, the Maple Grove Commercial District is already almost sold out. It will be surrounded by seven (7) green and open parks including an expansive ‘Central Park’ that will serve as the district’s ‘green jewel.’
Aside from the commercial district, residential properties and green parks around the development, Maple Grove will soon have its own lifestyle mall, commercial centers, and office towers.
The township is easily accessible via the Coastal Road and CAVITEX, with an estimated travel time of only 30 to 45 minutes from Makati CBD and Fort Bonifacio.
