Primary Homes, Inc. recently opened the showroom of its latest vertical development Royal Oceancrest Mactan that’s being positioned as a mini-township in response to the changing needs under a pandemic.

The two-hectare development worth P2 billion will feature four mid-rise buildings, resort-style amenities, a home office component, commercial zone, and plenty of free and open spaces, according to Primary Homes Vice President for Sales and Marketing Ramero Espina.

Three of the buildings will be purely residential while the fourth has been designed to host SOHO units and a commercial center that will have restaurants, cafe, convenience store, and laundry shop, among other services.

Prospective buyers can inspect the decked out one-bedroom and two-bedroom units from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Royal Oceancrest Mactan along Sudtunggan Road in Basak, Lapu-Lapu City.

Haven of wellness, leisure

Engr. William Christopher Liu Jr., Primary Group of Builders Chairman, said Royal Oceancrest Mactan has been designed for the new normal, with hepa filters for the air conditioning system, hand sanitation nooks, and vast landscaped area for homeowners to relax in while being socially-distanced. Liu and Espina led the ribbon cutting ceremony for the showroom opening last July 28, 2021.

The community is master planned as a secure haven of wellness and leisure, with 60% of the total development dedicated to free and open space. Residents can relax and reconnect, roam and immerse in the beauty of the gardens, bamboo tunnels, yoga pocket spaces, and other nature features. Among the other amenities are a swimming pool, clubhouse, fitness gym, play areas, jogging paths, edible gardens, and grilling station.

Royal Oceancrest Mactan also caters to the need for space and fast connectivity in today’s environment where people often work from home. Condominium units are much bigger with floor areas ranging from 28 to 60 square meters, and are available as bare or finished.

Finished units are priced from P2.4M to P6.1M while bare units cost 20% less at P1.9M to P4.8M. Prices already include taxes and transfer charges.

Investment destination

The four buildings will have a total of 956 units that are mainly one-bedroom or bigger because there is a high demand for space as families spend more time at home, said Espina.

He added that it was quite a surprise that sales of their condominium units picked up, particularly with movement restrictions adversely affecting the real estate market last year. He added that more than 60 percent of the first two towers of the mixed-use development have been sold even during the pandemic to mostly first-time buyers, describing them as young professionals and starter families who are looking for affordable living space they can move into right away.

“The younger generation now is becoming more and more financial and investment literate and we are here to support them with our flexible financing options,” Espina cited, pointing out that Lapu-Lapu is the perfect choice for a home or investment with its billions worth of new industrial and world-class developments.

Its close proximity to the Mactan International Airport, the soon to be completed Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, export zones, first-class resorts and hotels, export-oriented manufacturing companies and BPOs makes Royal Oceancrest Mactan a desirable address for working professionals and those eyeing to do business in the city, thus, making it an attractive location for property investments.

PrimaryHomes will be announcing other Royal Oceancrest properties in Cebu, Bohol, and Negros within the year and next year. For more details, contact PrimaryHomes at ‪032-253-9979‬ or visit www.primaryhomes.com.
