Aboitizland ‘s Seafront Residences to make a big impact

By Rizal Raoul Reyes


AboitizLand, the property development unit of the Aboitiz group of companies, recently launched the PhP 5-billion Seafront Residences project, a 43-hectare exclusive beachside residential development in San Juan, Batangas.

Patrick Reyes, president and chief operating officer of AboitizLand, said Seafront Residences seeks to build communities that would foster harmony among residents. “At AboitizLand, our aim is to curate communities so that our vecinos can live better, more fulfilled lives,” said Mr. Reyes.

Aboitizland expects to accommodate 800 residents in the project.

“Seafront Residences is primarily designed as a second home or a vacation residence where families can enjoy and create memories together. We’ve noticed that Filipinos usually build their dream vacation home after retirement, and get to enjoy this with their grandchildren only then. With this development, we want to allow them to do that earlier in their lives, when their own kids are younger and they are more active. It’s never too early to make a real estate investment, and Seafront Residences, while exclusive, will be reasonably positioned in terms of investment,” explained Reyes.

Rafael Fernandez de Mesa, First Vice President of Operations, AboitizLand, on his part, pointed out that Seafront Residences will be developed to ensure communities would interact on a regular basis. This will be done by building a walk-centric environment. Each house will have a-five to ten- minute walk from an amenity. It will have lush greenery and naturally lit homes with wide green landscapes where residents can play and enjoy outdoor activities.

The diamond-shaped park will serve as playground for the children to play and interact with one another. In this project, Reyes stressed AboitizLand will promote new urbanism where the emphasis will be on walking to lessen the carbon foot print and foster interaction.

“Houses, shops, and services will be closer together amid a traditional neighborhood structure, encouraging people to walk more and drive less. Taken together, we are also managing the environmental impact, energy-efficiency and eco-friendliness of the community,” said Fernandez de Mesa.

Seafront Residences has tapped internationally acclaimed master planners, DPZ Partners, LLC, , Seaside and Alys Beach townships in Florida; SC&A Architects and Planners, to adapt DPZ’s plans to the Philippine setting; Budji Layug+Royal Pineda Designs Architects Inc. for architecture and interior design; Crearis Corp. for landscape architecture; and GHD Pty Ltd for site infrastructure and utilities design.

AboitizLand has high expectations on Seafront Residences as more and more Filipinos are looking for high-quality residential development in Luzon. “Seafront Residences will address the need for adventure and at the same time give a sense of the familiar. Families will be given an experience that will allow for fun memories and priceless moments in their own homes within a well-designed community by the sea,” Fernandez de Mesa added.
