Miramonti Green Residences added laurels to publicly listed sustainable developer Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) as it won the prestigious International Property Awards for Asia Pacific, sealing its place as elite Award Winner for Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines 2019-2020.
“International Property Awards is a highly acclaimed award in the worldwide property industry. Winning International Property Awards for the third consecutive time and on all the properties we developed is a recognition of our design excellence as a sustainable developer,” said Romolo Nati, chairman and CEO of IDC.
IDC earned the prestigious recognition, which is considered a mark of excellence for property professionals, for its soon-to-rise project Miramonti Green Residences, a mixed-use eco-friendly development, set against the dramatic backdrop of majestic Mt. Makiling in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.
Inspired by its view (Miramonti in Italian means “look at the mountain”), the project is yet another example of the brand of design-driven sustainable architecture that Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) is bringing into the country’s emerging cities. Located in the south of Metro Manila, Sto. Tomas is part of the Philippines’ new beltway of economic growth along the expressways connecting the capital region with Batangas Port making the CALABARZON area one of the most dynamic trade zones in the country.
Easily accessible from South Luzon Expressway and adjacent to the Light Industry and Science Park III, Miramonti Green Residences is soon to become a prime landmark in Sto.Tomas, an expanding residential and commercial community located in the scenic Mt. Makiling area in southern Luzon, a fresh urban setting away from the chaotic metropolitan environment.
The Miramonti Green Residences project will consist of three 21-storey towers and will be developed in two phases. The first phase — one tower sitting atop a podium structure — will occupy a 2,057-sqm. area. It will offer 352 residential units, 18 commercial units, and 89 parking units alongside amenities, such as fitness center, swimming pool, playground, among others.
The design of Miramonti Green Residences integrates green strategies and systems that aim to reduce overall energy consumption in all towers resulting in long-term energy consumption savings. One of its key features is the use of passive cooling technology such as shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance. The project will also harness solar energy from photovoltaic panels to be installed on the roof of the towers.
“The citation in the Best Mixed-Use Development category within the International Property Awards-Asia Pacific 2019-2020 is an honor but receiving this prestigious recognition for the third time is really a big accomplishment,” pointed out architect Romolo Valentino Nati, chairman and CEO of IDC. “The success of IDC’s first two projects, Primavera Residences and Primavera City, both located in Cagayan de Oro, has been an inspiration to us. Further reinforcing our green advocacy, our latest project Miramonti Green Residences is a milestone and another example of the brand of design-driven sustainable architecture that Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC), is introducing to the country’s emerging cities,”
IDC will be honored at the Asia Pacific Property Awards in the Marriot Marquis Queen’s Park, Bangkok on May 14 and 15, together with the best property professionals across the Asia Pacific regions.
