Megaworld Develops Eco-Friendly Residential Village in Trece Martires City
Cavite, Philippines – Real estate company Megaworld, which develops large-scale, mixed-use communities, is building its first upscale residential village, the Arden Botanical Village, inside the 251-hectare Arden Botanical Estate in Trece Martires City.
The Ardent Botanical Estate is a joint project of Megaworld and subsidiary Global Estate Resorts Inc. Both will spend P18 billion to build the development for the next 10 years, mostly highlighted by flower farms and gardens.
Covering around 18 hectares of the estate, the planned residential village will have 329 lots ranging from 280 to 609 square meters, providing wide options for exploration and a bright and spacious ambiance to its residents.
Designed by Paulo Alcazaren, a renowned landscape architect and environmental planner, the exclusively gated village will be part of Centera Park. The park features natural groves of mature trees, natural waterways and ponds, sprawling lush greeneries, expansive open spaces, promenades and parks, and jogging paths.
Additionally, a natural swimming pool will be part of the development’s landscape; natural pools have been gaining popularity in many European neighborhoods recently.
The Arden Botanical Village took its inspiration from the popular Scandinavian Architecture, which is known for its thematic bridges, landscaped sideways, bike lanes, and some interactive water features. The houses and village amenities are designed following the minimalist form with clean lines and panoramic windows that look out, which makes a pleasant contrast to the verdant landscape outdoors.
“Arden Botanical Village will be built around the natural features that thrive in the estate, providing purposeful, livable spaces for its residents. Because the location is naturally gifted with greeneries that couldn’t be found in any other residential villages, we want to preserve and highlight them in our development,” said Eugene Em Lozano, Megaworld first vice president for sales and marketing.
The prices of the lot properties in Ardent Botanical Village range from P18,000 to P22,000 per square meter.
Megaworld is poised to generate around P2.5-billion in sales from the development of the residential village, which is expected to be completed in 2024.
