THE Mandani Bay skyline will soon start to amaze in years’ time, setting the pace to rival famous global landmarks such as New York’s Manhattan, Singapore’s Marina Bay and Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbor.
Four years from now, six towers are expected to be completed at the 20-hectare development of HTLand Inc., the joint venture of Hongkong Land and Taft Properties, that will transform Mandaue City’s bay area into a premier lifestyle and business hub in Cebu.
The developer has unveiled Mandani Bay Quay Tower 3, a 36-story condominium that will complete the Phase 2 of the waterfront township development.
“We hope to continue our legacy of transforming Cebu into a world-class lifestyle destination by giving our residents a taste of elevated urban living,” said Jeffrey Lun, project advisor at HTLand.
By April next year, the first two Phase 1 Mandani Bay Suites towers are expected to be completed and turned over to buyers.
The first tower of Phase 2 will be completed by early 2022 while the second tower will follow later that year.
The completion of Phase 2’s office tower and third residential tower is eyed by early and later 2023, respectively.
Sales head Audrey Villa said the construction of the township project is on track as planned.
Quay’s Tower 3 offers Mandani’s first fully-furnished units, whose interiors are designed by Hong Kong-based PTang Studio Ltd.
Gilbert Ang, HTLand project director, said Tower 3 still allows personalization and provides buyers with more room for flexibility.
The condo’s fully-furnished studio, studio plus and one-bedroom units allow residents to move conveniently when their units are ready, he said.
It also offers semi-furnished units for two-bedroom and up.
Ang also shared a dedicated app designed for Tower 3, which incorporates a digitized access system for its residents. It activates advanced accessibility features within the community.
Facing west of the township, the new tower will have six elevators and generous common areas.
It is also designed to have an exclusive amenity area, the Active Zone, which will house al fresco spaces.
Mandani’s Phase 1 and 2 will have about 5,000 units, 88 percent of them are already sold out, company officials disclosed.
Property research firm Colliers International Philippines (Colliers) sees a sustained demand for residential projects in Cebu, particularly in the condominium segment.
There are 42.1 thousand condominium inventory in Cebu as of the first quarter of 2019. By the end of 2021, Cebu province will have a total of 51.9 thousand condominium stock.
