First, the company will launch additional components in existing key integrated tourism estate projects, Boracay Newcoast and Twin Lakes. For Boracay Newcoast, for launch this year are Phase 2 of the Belmont Luxury Hotel and Phase 3 of Boracay Portico. In Twin Lakes, Shiraz, the third condominium at the Vineyard Residences, is expected to make its debut.
Next, the company will develop Southwoods City in Laguna into a township project. It is envisioned to be a 561-hectare fully integrated township project positioned to be the next central business district, residential, business, commercial and leisure hub that is closest and most accessible to Metro Manila.
Within this township development shall rise Southwoods Mall, a vast lifestyle shopping centre with close to 7 hectares of leasable space replete with department stores, supermarket, restaurants, cinemas and office and retail establishments.
Once operational, the Southwoods Mall will provide the company a bigger base of recurring income.” Santos said.
Southwoods Mall is expected to commence operation by fourth quarter of 2016.
A short distance from Southwoods Mall shall be the first residential condominium, one of the many, in Southwoods City. As part of the township project, GERI also intends to launch the Pahara at Southwoods, a 26-hectare residential subdivision.
