AboitizLand on March 29 hosted the grand launch of Seafront Residences, a 43-hectare exclusive beachside residential development in San Juan, Batangas.
The launch is part of AboitizLand’s expansion to Luzon, with the project expected to accommodate 800 homes and serve more than 1,000 residents.
“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.”
-Patrick Reyes, President and COO, AboitizLand
Seafront Residences is to be the first full build-out property of AboitizLand, with the company having tapped world renowned partners in its development, namely internationally acclaimed master planners DPZ Partners LLC, best known for designing the Rosemary, 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.
Meticulously planned and curated, Seafront Residences features lush greenery, well and naturally-lit homes with wide green landscapes, and increased walkability and connectivity between interest points. Every home at Seafront Residences opens up to a diamond-shaped park that encourages children to play freely and families to interact with one another.
“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.”
-Rafael Fernandez de Mesa, First Vice President of Operations, AboitizLand
The launch event was held in a beach-themed event at the Bonifacio Global City, led by company principals CEO Andoni Aboitiz, Patrick Reyes and Rafael Fernandez de Mesa. Among the highlights was an exclusive beach volleyball game featuring star players of Beach Volleyball Republic including Charo Soriano, Gretchen Ho, Bea Tan and Fille Cainglet – Cayetano, with entertainment from Nicole Asensio. The fun-filled afternoon fully encapsulated what life at Seafront Residences will be like – lots of space for play, fun, and nature, with a strong sense of camaraderie and community.
