ANOTHER exciting development is rising in the southern part of Davao City, a four-building vertical residences along Ma-a Road. On January 30th, the first development of Crisron Holiday Builders Inc.’s Legacy Leisure Suites officially kicked off with a groundbreaking ceremony and presentation of its showroom.

Behind Crisron Holiday Builders Inc. are two families who have established several successful brand names in the fields of retail, real estate, transportation, and tourism related establishments. Embarking on a new era of business venture, patriarchs Cresencio Yap and Ronald Bangayan inked a partnership to create a company with a bigger vision— a legacy, for their children and family. Legacy Leisure Residences is the start of the fulfillment of that dream.

In his welcome note, Clark Yap, Vice-president of Crisron Builders Inc., said, “The Yaps and the Bangayans, starting out as retailers and traders in the 1970’s, have long established their roots in the business industry of Davao. It has always been a dream of my dad, Cris Yap, and my Ninong Buboy Bangayan, to go beyond trading and create a community that truly enriches the lifestyle and progress of the Davaoeños. And who best to bring this to life than the two families who have seen Davao grow and prosper into what it is today. So this really to them is their “Legacy”, built for the community of Davao which they can be proud of.”

Legacy Leisure Residences is a mixed-use condominium development that aims to focus on the overall well-being of its future residents by catering to both their residential and recreational needs. Situated in a 2.8-hectare property along Ma-a Road, Davao City, it consists of four 15-storey buildings, and a commercial strip at the development’s frontage.

It promotes a fun, fresh yet homey ambiance that would make every day feel like a staycation. With resort-themed recreational and multi- functional amenities, residents will get a grasp of urban living, serene relaxation, and top-of-the-line leisure and fun, all at once. It will not just provide the residents with a home, but with a resort within the heart of the city.

In his congratulatory note, Vice-Mayor Sebastian Duterte, through his Chief of Staff Atty. Francis Mark Layug, said, “Davao City has immensely progressed throughout the years. It has become one of the largest and highly-urbanized cities in the country, making it ideal for real estate investors. To Crisron Legacy Leisure Residences, congratulations on the groundbreaking of your four-tower condominium project. We trsut that this resort-themed condominium will serve as a new home to our fellow Davaoeños. The Davao City Government is thankful for investing in our city. We wish for you projects continued success.”
