Resort-residential project breaks ground in Mactan-A A +A
Wednesday, January 8, 2014
TWO iconic resorts in Mactan Island will be made exclusive to residents of resort-residential project Tambuli Seaside Living, the first project of its kind in Cebu, which is set to rise in 2016.
Developed by Tytans Properties and Development Inc., Tambuli Seaside Living is an 11-hectare property that covers the whole area of the Cebu Beach Club and the Tambuli East Wing.
Tytans Properties and Development Inc. president Gerard Tan said during the groundbreaking yesterday that Tambuli will have a total of six mid-rise towers, two of which will be turned over in the fourth quarter of 2016.
The billion-peso project will have a 200-meter beachfront and will cover a four-hectare amenities area.
Tan said Tambuli is the first resort-residential project in Cebu. He said they see more opportunities for developing property for exclusive use instead of vying against tourism establishments like resorts and hotels.
“In the tourism industry, you get a lot of competition, but in this case, we incorporate the residential and tourism factors,” Tan said.
He said the resorts will be closed at the onset of the construction, which is set to start early this year.
Tambuli is also the first project of the company. Its chairman Montano Ty expressed confidence in the project, saying that there are no other projects like Tambuli here in Cebu where residents can take on an “everyday vacation of sea and sand.”
The project will have 144 residential units, 88 of which are studio types and the other 56 are one-bedroom types. Unit areas range from 35 square meters to 63 square meters, with every unit having a balcony.
The units will be sold from P2.9 million to P7 million, all of which are packaged with home appliances like TV, refrigerator, aircon unit, sofa and dining set, bed, washing machine and kitchen cupboards, among many others.
Amenities include a modern Asian clubhouse, a commercial complex, swimming pool, restaurants and bars, gym, golf-carts and mini-waterfalls.
Tambuli is designed by architect Alex Medalla of architectural firm Arkinamix, in collaboration with EA Aurelio Landscape.
Medalla said Tambuli adopts the modern tropical design look in its construction.
