Certified green developer Italpinas Development Corp. (IDC) recently launched the new tower of its latest sustainable project, Primavera City, in Uptown Cagayan de Oro (CDO) City.
Responding to a high demand that saw almost 80 percent of residential units in Tower A sold, the developer moved quickly to open Tower B.
Architect Romolo V. Nati, chairman and CEO of IDC, said they foresee Primavera City will drive economic growth in the city and help make Metro CDO prosperous.
Primavera Residences and Primavera City are both located in the booming uptown district of the city located 150 meters above sea level. It is a flood-free area.
Primavera City is designed as a seven-tower development. The first phase of the project consists of Tower A and B, which are scheduled to be completed in the year 2018. Its seventh tower, the final one to be built, is planned to be a high-rise hotel, and an icon of the new and modern face of uptown CDO.
Towers A and B together will consist of 281 residential units including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units, with the option for larger configurations to be custom designed upon request. They will also have nine commercial units, eight restaurant units and 41 office spaces, respectively.
Built with cutting-edge green design strategies, Primavera City will harness the principles of passive cooling technology: shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance.
It will feature renewable energy, semi-transparent photovoltaic panels on its rooftop. It will also introduce water recycling for building maintenance and landscape irrigation.
