New developer finds early success by focusing on sustainable living

I-Land Residences Sucat
I-Land Residences Sucat is the first condo project launched by I-Land

I-Land is looking to build its legacy and that started with the launch of the developer’s first condo project in Parañaque City. I-Land Residences Sucat was unveiled back in February with the project’s first tower selling out despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

ISOC Holdings, a conglomerate with energy, infrastructure and logistics interests, set up I-Land with a clear vision in place. It wanted to focus on sustainable living, something that has become even more important in light of the ‘new normal’.

“Homeseekers and investors alike are now recognizing value in the long-term solutions that sustainable developments bring, such as more efficient use and management of natural resources, building design that takes into consideration harmony with the environment, and a home that is adaptive to a changing lifestyle of work and study in place,” Jesus Chua Jr., ISOC Holdings President, told the Business Mirror.

This approach can be found throughout I-Land Residences Sucat. Firstly, the development is LEED-certified with an estimated 65 percent of land dedicated to open spaces. Six mid-rise towers have been spread across the two-hectare estate to ensure homebuyers can enjoy a peaceful residence in Metro Manila.

The developer has plans to launch its next condo project, Cloverleaf, before the end of the year. The masterplanned residential development in Quezon City will have many of the sustainable living features found at I-Land Residences Sucat. According to I-Land, these features are something that have resonated with buyers.

“Sustainability is a key value of ISOC Holdings. And with what has happened this 2020, it has evolved from being a vision to giving us a true sense of purpose,” ISOC Holdings Group Chairman Michael Cosiquien explained to the website. “The reality of COVID-19 has only emphasized the necessary shift to sustainable living, to allow Filipinos to thrive in an increasingly evolving world and to live in the best possible way—benefiting themselves and their families, as well as the environment.”
