Last October 26, 2013, the Media together with the On Line Bloggers attended the Groundbreaking ceremony of Paseo Verde which is at the Heart of Las Pinas City. The ground is being readied to be housed and build by three Condominiums that will change the outlook of every citizen in this city.
Green community rises in the South, and this is the one that will answer our problems on floods and low rise communities that will be affected on storms and other kind of calamities that may comes our way.
With today’s worsening climate change, it comes as no surprise that private companies have gone the extra-mile to provide necessary products and services to address this growing concern.
Even in real estate, developers go out of their way not just to provide a roof over one’s head, but also offer an environment where future residents can live conscientiously, and enjoy nature at the same time.
Maverick developer, LEED INC., the property developing arm of construction professionals, Cavite Ideal International Construction and Development Corporation (CAVDEAL), puts special focus on this requirement through their first residential foray: Paseo Verde at Real.
Located along Real St., PulangLupa Uno in Las Pinas City, Paseo Verde at Real is set to be the newest ‘green’ landmark of the city. This 1.1 Hectare mid-rise condominium development will allocate moreland for open spaces, jogging path, playground and recreational areas that future residents are sure to enjoy.
Two of the towers will have 314 units, while the nine-storey tower will hold a total of 156 units ranging from studio to three-bedroom homes. The project will embody Las Pinas’ image as one of the most historically rich parts of Metro Manila (it is within the cultural area where the famous Bamboo Organ is located) by showcasing a Neo-Asian design with touches of Filipiniana in fixtures and details.
But more than that, this three-tower project will offer exceptional Green Features – amenities that focus on the groundbreaking green architecture and puts emphasis to the company’s three environment focus: Climate Change, the Clean Air Act, and the Safety and Health of its Residents.
Here are the twelve= Green Features
From energy-saving amenities, and unique structural layouts, Paseo Verde at Real’s Green Features will change the way we look at green living.
First on the list are the energy-efficient streetlights that illuminate the gated community’s grounds. The lights don’t make use of any electricity at all, and gets energy from solar panels. This equates to low association dues that cut down on the energy utilized by the whole community.
Next is the rain catchment facility which allow the whole development to make use of recycled rain water for grounds upkeep. Water from rainfalls is used to clean the surrounding, and water the green patches that make-up the lifestyle facilities. Paseo Verde at Real also has a unique ‘rain garden’ located under the property’s cistern – this serves as a natural water filter which means less water waste is thrown out of the drainage system, and in turn, lessening the chances of floods in surrounding areas during the tropical storm season.
The buildings also make use of recycled construction materials – strong recycled wood are utilized as door frames and door jams in various parts of the towers, giving the development a rustic feel as well.
The layout of all three towers also ensure that indoor air quality is at its best: Pocket gardens that open to large air pockets in the middle of every residential floor ensure that fresh air circulate freely around the building. This removes the stifling feeling often associated with most condo developments.
Complementing this feature are large glass windows of the Paseo Verde at Real homes, which allow not just air but natural lighting to illuminate the place, saving more on electricity bills.
The parks and playground, made safe by strategically constructing it away from the project’s vehicular traffic, provides a small patch of nature for the residents to enjoy fresh air in the city.
The most unique feature of Paseo Verde at Real however, is probably the bike facilities that will be made available upon construction. Aside from bike lanes, there will be permanent bike racks where lovers of the activity can park their equipment safely.
Biking will definitely be promoted by the project as they also put charging stations for e-bikes – a mode of transportation that will be encouraged for older residents.
Future homeowners will also be encouraged to take public transportation instead of their cars. Aside from transportation hubs located near the community, the proposed LRT Extension station connecting the South to other transit facilities is also a stone’s throw away. This makes it easy to move around strategic parts of the city.
“We wanted to be a niche player in the real estate industry, by providing a project that truly promotes a green and healthy lifestyle. In fact, part of our requirements to owning a unit is undergoing a one day seminar on how to adopt a green lifestyle. We want residents to know that we are serious about our vision for Paseo Verde. Paseo Verde at Real won’t be our first project to promote this type of set-up. Expect more Paseo Verdes to rise and encourage a healthier way of living,” said Regie Dela Cruz, LEED Inc. project director.
Paseo Verde at Real is accredited by the Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE) and a member of the Philippine Green Building Council for its steps towards promoting a sustainable community. The first tower turnover is scheduled in October, 2015. For more information, please call 854-1652.
