Aruga Resort & Residences – Mactan expands investment opportunities
As we course through the pandemic, property seekers’ preferences have sailed off to different shores. Many are exploring investment opportunities outside the nation’s capital — be it for their next business venture or future residence.
Showing great promise outside Luzon is Cebu, the main pulse that pumps more life around the buoyant Visayas region. Above and beyond its rich heritage and culture, the province has long been ripe as a sweet mash-up of irresistible destinations for tourists, a desirable home to those looking for greener pastures, and location for progressive entrepreneurs.
For one, Colliers said that Cebu would remain a preferred business destination for Metro Manila-based outsourcing companies, which are aggressively looking to diversify their office footprint and establishing operations outside the metropolis. This is due to the province’s competitiveness in terms of manpower, infrastructure, and cost of doing business.
Infrastructure build-up in Cebu also raises the potential of the province to another level.
Soon, Cebu province dwellers can conveniently reach different points of the province with the development of the Metro Cebu Expressway, monorail transport system, and Bus Rapid Transit project.
The portal to the archipelago, the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), has already bagged numerous international awards from the World Architecture Festival 2019 as well as the CAPA Aviation Award for Asia Pacific Airport of the Year since its recent rehabilitation.
Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL) also recently mentioned the eight-kilometer-long and 27-meter-wide Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, which will serve as an alternate route to the MCIA, will raise the interest of industrial development in southern Cebu.
Envisioned to be the longest and tallest bridge in the Philippines — surpassing San Juanico Bridge — it is currently being constructed to serve around 40,000 vehicles daily. With a total 229-kilometer network of roads connecting Mandaue, Cebu and Lapu-Lapu, the office and residential sector seem to rise hand-in-hand.
In February, Leechiu Property Consultants Inc. CEO David Leechu said condominium prices in Cebu were continuously increasing, luring future tourists and potential residents and investors. Backing this up, Colliers sees prices of condominium units to record an average increase of five-percent per year from 2021 to 2022, faster than its earlier projected growth of three-percent in 2020.
One too many crises have come and go, yet real estate proves to be more resilient than other industries. Those who took advantage of great investment opportunities during crises have enjoyed returns in three-folds and even more once the country recovers.
One budding opportunity, Aruga Resort & Residences – Mactan, is right at the center of progress in Visayas. On its move to Mactan, Rockwell Land brings to the region its signature community living. The company’s newest development is also seen to boost investor’s property portfolio — similar to its projects across the Philippines, particularly the high-end ones that have enjoyed strong capital appreciation through time.
Here, sprawling shores with white sand serves as its resident’s front lawn with a 270-meter stretch on a private beach. From their exquisite living spaces, guests can get panoramic views of the iconic Magellan Bay and breathtaking Hilutungan Channel.
