PROPERTY developer Filinvest Land Inc. (FLI) has tied up with Central Negros Electric Cooperative Inc. (Ceneco) in empowering Talisay City to accelerate its progress and development with new electrical infrastructure for future customers of the latter.
The subsidiary of a Filinvest Development Corp. has installed 42 electricity poles on a 2.7-kilometer stretch along Circumferential Road in Barangay E. Lizares, Talisay City.
They are located near FLI’s Palm Estates, major thoroughfares, schools, and the Bacolod-Silay International Airport.
“[This] is a testament to Filinvest Land’s commitment to providing essential infrastructure for future residents and businesses in the area,” said Phil Calumpang, geographic planning head for the rest of Visayas at FLI.
Inspired by its namesake, a popular Californian city within the Coachella Valley, Palm Estates is a 51-hectare mixed-use development designed to be a “city within a city.” This community boasts of cosmopolitan vibe, featuring residential enclaves, topnotch amenities, and ample open spaces for Negrense families to enjoy.
Key components of this estate property include a neighborhood commercial complex, chapel, clubhouse, events area/plaza, transportation hub, and its flagship residential community, Futura Homes Palm Estates, which offers smart-value house and lots with a modern minimalist motif.
Turnover of houses at Palm Estates will begin in the first quarter of 2024. Its development is in full swing with the ongoing construction of central amenities. The clubhouse and basketball court are expected to open this year, to be followed by the rest of the amenities such as the soccer field, and swimming pool in 2025.
“As we continue to build communities in Negros Occidental, we aim to create not just homes but vibrant and sustainable environments where Negrense families can thrive. We believe in the potential of Talisay City, and through initiatives like this, we strive to energize growth and enhance the quality of life for the community,” Calumpang said.
Ceneco is among the 121 electric cooperatives in the Philippines. It was incorporated in 1975 in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. With the help of the national government, it purchased and took over A. S. Diaz Electric Service in 1978, which previously served Bacolod and Talisay Cities.
