AmiSa Private Residences has proven to be a popular project with buyers seeking a place that could serve as both an upscale holiday home and sound investment. In fact, it’s been so well received that RLC Residences decided to launch a fourth tower at the development which is located behind the Dusit Thani Mactan Resort on Mactan Island.
The first three ready-for-occupancy towers at AmiSa Private Residences are close to being sold out. This is why RLC Residences felt now was a good time to expand its popular Mactan development. The previous phases found success from those with changing requirements under the new normal.
“We’re seeing mostly people who are the business leisure type of investors. Those aged between 40s to 60s, those nearing retirement,” RLC Residences Marketing Head and Chief Integration Officer Karen Cesario told BusinessWorld. “With the pandemic, most people wanted to live and work in areas that are more calm and serene. This (project) is where they can combine both business and leisure.”
AmiSa Private Residences Tower D will stand 16-storeys and contain 176 studio, one- and two-bedroom units. RLC Residences has focused on creating large homes with sizes starting at 40 square meters. This ensures the project caters to shifting demands from clients.
“One of the key changes during the pandemic was that for people, home has become more important also as an office. They prefer larger spaces now. It’s noticeable not just with the demand we’re seeing with AmiSa but with other projects as well, which is why we decided to shift the unit mix to be skewed towards larger-sized units,” RLC Residences Senior Vice-President – Business Unit General Manager John Richard Sotelo.
Units will also be equipped with smart home technologies while select residences contain work-from-home areas, pantry drawers and walk-in closets. Prices at the popular Mactan development range from PHP5.8 million to PHP16.1 million.
