Italpinas Development Corp. (IDC), a publicly listed sustainable developer, was recently awarded at the Asia Pacific Property International Awards in Bangkok in the Best Mixed-Use Development category for its Miramonti Green Residences project.
“Asia Pacific Property International Awards is a highly acclaimed award in the worldwide property industry. Winning Asia Pacific Property International Awards for the third consecutive time, and on all the properties we developed is a recognition of our design excellence as a sustainable developer” said Arch. Romolo Valentino Nati, the chairman and CEO of IDC in a press statement.
Miramonti Green Residences, the soon-to-rise project is a mixed-use eco-friendly development, is currently in full swing construction set against the dramatic backdrop of majestic Mount Makiling in Santo Tomas, Batangas.
Miramonti (which means “look at the mountain” in Italian), according to Nati, is another example of the brand of design-driven sustainable architecture that IDC is bringing into the country’s emerging cities. Located in the south of Metro Manila, Santo Tomas is part of the Philippines’s new beltway of economic growth along the expressways connecting the capital region with Batangas Port making the Calabarzon area one of the most dynamic trade zones in the country.
Miramonti Green Residences project will consist of three 21-story towers and will be developed in two phases. The first phase, currently under construction, comprises of one tower sitting atop a podium structure, will occupy a 2,057-square meter area. It will offer 352 residential units, 18 commercial units, and 89 parking units alongside amenities, such as fitness center, swimming pool, playground, among others.
The design of Miramonti Green Residences integrates passive and active green strategies and systems that aim to reduce overall energy consumption in all towers reducing the overall environmental impact and resulting in long-term energy consumption savings. One of its key features is the use of passive cooling technology, such as shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance. The project will also harness solar energy from photovoltaic panels to be installed on the roof of the towers.
“The success of IDC’s first two projects, Primavera Residences and Primavera City, both located in Cagayan de Oro, has been an inspiration to us. Further reinforcing our green advocacy, our latest project Miramonti Green Residences is a milestone and another example of the brand of design-driven sustainable architecture that IDC, is introducing to the country’s emerging cities” added Nati.
“Our passion in bringing the design-driven sustainable architecture in emerging cities has always been the driving force of IDCTM. Winning the prestigious International Property Awards for Asia Pacific in all three of our developments reinvigorates not only our passion but also our commitment to bring relevant sustainable developments in the country,” said IDC President Atty. Jose Leviste III.
It is the third win for IDC for the prestigious International Property Awards for Asia Pacific sealing its place as elite Award Winner for Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines 2019-2020.
