The esteemed property developer extends to Cebu its well-known legacy of personifying cities with unique architectural structures that give depth, meaning, and a signal for growth.
Every key region in the country is home to such impressive and standout structures towering over the cityscape majestically—embodying a unique personality that emphasizes the city’s profile, gives new form to its skyline, and hints at a strong potential for economic gain.
To quote Federal Land Inc. General Manager Thomas Mirasol, “Aesthetic variety among city buildings are proof of the economic progress and the modernity of this country’s best urban areas. Most importantly, distinct structures can serve as new landmarks that capture the essence of their respective cities.”
Developing cities have the most recognizable skylines
Mirasol believes that this is a testament to the budding advancements of each city. For him, the distinctively diverse architectural structures in developing cities are not just for beautification; they also capture what the city has to offer.
Western respondents named the Makati Central Business District’s (CBD) skyline as the most recognizable across emerging markets, as reported in a survey conducted by the global property portal, Lamudi. Makati CBD is, after all, punctuated by Federal Land’s GT Tower International. The iconic architectural marvel has such distinct blade-like apex and eye-catching streamline lights that set it apart from the rest.
Where luxury meets convenience
Mirasol further expounds on the topic: “Luxury residential properties showcase changing lifestyles of today’s more affluent consumers by harmonizing a cosmopolitan city life with the comfort, and privacy of a suburban home.”
The esteemed real estate developer, Federal Land, has built a reputation of personifying rising metropolises with their prominent developments—driven by an industrial intuition sharpened through its 47 years of expertise. The property giant is also known for collaborating with reputed global partners and bringing world-class hospitality brands to the Philippines.
Federal Land has a portfolio of impressive residential projects. Its iconic award-winning skyscraper, Grand Hyatt Manila, and the whopping $400M The Seasons Residences in Bonifacio Global City are only some examples of the company’s unique landmark structures.
The rapid urbanization of the country left room to modernize in and out of the metro. While cities in the NCR continue to flourish with consistent modernization, factors driving strong interest and urbanization are now flowing into provincial metropolises like Cebu.
Crowning the Queen City of the South
Outside of Luzon, Cebu is positioned as one of the most preferred investment destinations—adding to the fact that it is consistently marked as one of the country’s top cities.
“Cebu’s enduring economic growth has strengthened its market for upscale residential properties,” Mirasol said. “The city’s natural beauty contributes to its effortless tourist appeal, while its skilled workforce continually influences various businesses, including multi-national companies, to set up operations there. This spurs the migration and local settlement of their executives and high-ranking officers.”
Federal Land’s diversified portfolio reaches even the Queen City of the South, with its four-tower Marco Polo Residences atop the exclusive Hills district in Cebu, personifying the city by marrying its classic culture of history and tradition with its chic urbanity. This year, Federal Land will be launching Parkplace, the fifth tower in this luxury condo township backed by the five-star Marco Polo Hotel brand. The residences are meant to promote and inculcate in its structure Cebu’s heritage through the Marco Polo brand, as it fuses Asian hospitality with Western innovations.
Parkplace is unique in its visual fluidity and structural integrity. Residential units are strategically arranged to take advantage of the development’s hilltop location. Architecturally designed to resemble two connecting pearls, it will ideally provide a visual sampler of Cebu by framing the panoramic view of the sea, sky, and city.
Throughout all these, Parkplace will not sacrifice quality over quantity: With only 14 units per floor, residents are given a sense of personal space while having access to hotel services for utmost comfort.
The expansive property on which Parkplace stands will provide residents the freedom of space and openness to experience an extensive set of amenities also located within Federal Land’s Marco Polo Residences township. This includes, but is of course not limited to, access to fitness facilities such as Circuit Training, Yoga Studio, and Golf Simulation. Recreational areas such as the Art Room, KTV Room, and the Mini Theater also provide families more space to connect within the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Residents also have access to facilities and amenities of the four existing towers and outdoor amenities.
Amid the growing interest heating up the Cebu landscape and cityscape, Federal Land’s Mirasol considers Parkplace an expansion of the township, which adds another dimension to the city’s persona.
“Federal Land is poised to continue developing Marco Polo Residences, precisely reflecting Cebu as it advances and evolves.”
