Building dreams at Camella Legazpi

(The Philippine Star) - November 16, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The regional hub of Bicolandia, at the southern tip of the immense island of Luzon, is Albay’s booming Legazpi City.  An irresistible trove of sights, flavors, scenery, festivals, and histories, the provincial capital is a mesmerizing collection of all things old-world and traditional blended with the hubbub and urbanity of a steadily, and very rapidly, progressing city.

It’s a beautiful place to lay the foundations of one’s dreams and build a family, a career and a future.  This is why Camella ­– the real estate brand with the widest geographical reach – chose to create one of its newest and most exciting master planned enclaves right in the alluring city of Legazpi…

Building ideal family homes

Camella is the subsidiary catering to the mid-market segment of Vista Land & Lifescapes, the country’s premier homebuilder.  In a 2011 study by Colliers International Research, Vista Land stood out as the leader in Philippine residential real estate development with a total of over 18,422 houses, houses and lots and condominiums sold out in that year.  Like its mother company, Camella understands that it is the ultimate dream of every Filipino to have a home of their own.  Thus, it is their vision to build a home for every Filipino. 

Camella has long been a familiar household name in the country.  In over 37 years, it has built an immense selection of high-quality homes and exquisitely themed communities and master planned “cities” across our islands – each one carrying with it Vista Land’s expertise in space planning, carefully thought out and sustainable architecture, and an innate knack for selecting the most accessible and attractive locations ­– always conveniently close to schools, business centers, transport hubs, and places of worship, entertainment, and culture.  To date, the group has built more than 250,000 homes and maintains a powerful presence in Mega Manila and 31 other key provincial destinations and 63 cities and municipalities. 

Outside the Mega Manila area, Camella builds, manages and markets its developments through communities Philippines.  The group has been building houses and communities in the country’s provinces for the affordable, middle and upper middle income segments offering Lessandra, Camella and Jewels Series homes respectively.

Reaching even higher to bring better housing to Filipinos, Camella has introduced “Camella Condo Homes” or CCH – a selection of mid- and high-rise condominiums as beautifully and thoughtfully designed and built as its house-and-lot developments.

The lifestyle Filipinos deserve

Ideally located on over 20 hectares of land, at 105 feet above sea level, Camella Legazpi sits above Bicolandia’s most populous city, giving its future residents an exquisite 360-degree view of the bustling metropolis, the magnificent Bicol mountains and hillsides in the west, Embarcadero de Legazpi in South-east, the sparkling blue Albay Gulf in the east, and the perfect cone of the country’s most beautiful volcano, Mount Mayon, as well as the cityscape, in the distant north.  The beautifully rolling terrain is situated in uptown Legazpi in an area that promises to be completely flood free.

“We are very particular about where we locate our communities,” according to Camella president Jerylle Luz  Quismundo, “We owe our future residents homes that will give them complete access to whatever they need – or would like to have – to live full and enjoyable lives.  We believe our Camella Legazpi is possibly the best location a residential community in this city can ever have.”

Beyond the facilities the master planned community will offer, the effervescent city by the bay offers many options for natural health and sports activities like jogging, biking or fishing along the Boulevard. A few minutes drive from Camella’s gates is Legazpi’s popular commercial and entertainment hub, the Embarcadero de Legazpi with its shops and restaurants, waterfront walk, delightful view of the harbor and Mayon, and its famous lighthouse.  For even more leisure and shopping options, the Gaisano Mall is also nearby, and not too far away are the LCC Mall and Savemore; and for the basics, the public market is an easy five-minute drive  away.

Strategically in the center of movement and traffic hubs, the development is bordered by some of the city’s main roadways and railways, including those that traverse through the province and out to the rest of Luzon.  So accessible, it is also a mere 20 minutes to Legazpi airport and less than 10 minutes to the Legazpi Port.  Top hospitals are nearby, as well as  top schools like St. Agnes Academy and  Divine World College.
