Aeon Towers to sell remaining units in 1 year-A A +A
Tuesday, January 21, 2014
IN TWO years time, FTC Group of Companies' 33-storey Aeon Towers will become the tallest building in Davao City. As its completion nears, its management has vowed all units are sold out before its inauguration.
Last January 17, 2013, the company launched Aeon Rush 2014 during its grand seller's assembly at the Grand Regal Hotel.
"We will be selling out Aeon Tower's remaining units in one year, hence Aeon Rush," sales and training manager Elizer dela Pena said.
As of January 17, 265 units are still to be sold. Most of these remaining units are one and two bedroom units and the studio suite.
One of the strategies they are employing to sell out all the units is improving the incentives, like outright commissions and raffle draws, of their agents and property specialists.
"We will also help them make activities for investors, like having an open house," Dela Peña said, adding they will also be giving saturation and training activities for their agents.
For the clients, they have the open house discount.
"This means that when the client pays on the day of the open house, he or she has a discount regardless of the unit," Dela Peña said, adding that they are on the process of discussing as to how much the discount will be.
Once completed, the 33-storey level Aeon Towers, sitting on a 4,574 square meters (sq. m.) lot, will be the tallest building in Davao City and will house 473 residential units, four star hotel, a BPO, retail mall, and four levels of basement parking with 300 slots.
Building features include fiber optic ready units, Wi-Fi connections in common areas, four high speed passenger elevators, advanced fire protection alarm and sprinkler system, Green building technology, and 24 hours CCTV security cameras, among others.
Amenities include fitness hub, spa, swimming pool, library, function hall, pool, kiddy playroom, conference room, and barbecue pit and grill area.
The power supply of the tower will be coming from Davao Light and Power Company (DLPC), and it will have its own back up of 100 percent power supply for the entire building.
The residential tower also boasts Smarthome technology, wherein units are equipped with a touch-screen master controller that allows the resident to dim lights, turn the air conditioner on or off, play music, adjust shower temperature, draw curtains, and control door access anytime wherever they are.
At present, the ground works for the tower, which includes bored piling and diaphragm wall, is in progress and is more than half complete. Operation on the site is 24 hours with 65 workers.
To date, the project as a whole is already 12 percent complete. The tower is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2016.
