Advantages of Living in a Condo

Living in a condo is a dream come true for most of us who are working and living in most urban cities in the Philippines.

Living in a condo makes your day-to-day life more efficient and convenient because like in the Primavera Residences in uptown Cagayan de Oro City it is just across SM City CDO. Going to the grocery is so convenient, when you forgot something to buy, you just cross the road to go to the grocery or buy something in the mall.

A clean surrounding and a secure place is another advantage of living in a condo. You don’t need to hire or have someone with you to attend your house since that is already taken cared of by the condo management specially when managed by IDC condos. Elevators and the lobby have security systems in place to identify who are going in and out of the condominium building.

With its efficient floor plan designs its quite easy to maintain and live in a modern and minimalist lifestyle. For me living in a condo has many advantages since almost everything is just a stones throw away. If you are hungry and very tired to cook you can just go down and order food from restaurants. If you want to go swimming you can go to the pool within the building.

All this can be realize if you choose the right condominium project. If you are planning to buy and ready to stay in a condo living lifestyle be sure to checkout the advantages and features I mentioned above to be satisfied of what condo living should be.


Solar Powered Condo Living at Primavera City

Condominium projects are sprouting all over Cagayan de Oro City nowadays – thanks to the growing economy of the Philippines – more investments are spilling over the city.

With so many options, newbie condo buyers will have a hard time choosing and deciding on what to buy.

But one thing that most condo buyers seldom consider in deciding to have their first units – that I learned when my family bought a condo unit in Metro Manila back then – is the monthly maintenance cost.

Primavera City by IDC

The upcoming Primavera City of Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) is the true answer to having a state-of-the-art yet a low maintenance condo unit.

Powered by its own solar power plant, owning a unit on this condominium project will definitely have a lower monthly maintenance cost as the management could produce green energy from the sun which they will pass on to the condo units.

The innovative design of the building lessens its dependence on expensive power from the local grid.

IDC President Jose “Jojo” D. Leviste III said that by investing in an economically sized solar-power system, the residents of Primavera City will enjoy a lowered cost of living as the system contributes solar power to the building’s various functions.

The Primavera City will launch in the second quarter of this year and its Phase 1 involves the construction of two towers of integrated multifunctional buildings (commercial, office, residential) project with 11 floors each.

Located at the Pueblo de Oro Business Park, Upper Carmen, Cagayan de Oro (near SM City Cagayan de Oro). Phase 1 of the project entails an investment of about P653 million for 2 towers. When fully completed, Primavera City will have 7 green buildings including a high rise tower.

The first two towers of Primavera City Phase 1 are designed to have 337 units, 57 of them commercial units; 231 are studio-type; 22 are one-bedroom units, 27 are two-bedroom units and around 100 parking slots.

Their average sizes are 50 to 60 square meters for commercial units, 28 sqm for studio-type units, 47 sqm for the single-bedroom units, and 70 sqm for the two-bedroom units. This would surely be an exciting condominium project in the city that’s worth investing in.
