Calling it a new gift of development, officials of Suntrust Properties, a wholly-owned subsidiary of property giant Megaworld Corporation, have unveiled the community clubhouse of The Fountain Grove along the airport access road bordering the cities of Bacolod and Talisay.
The Fountain Grove is a 24.52-hectare upper middle class residential project that forms part of Megaworld’s 53-hectare The Northill Gateway township development.
Suntrust Properties President Atty. Harrison Paltongan, who led the clubhouse blessing yesterday, October 20, recalled that they started the land development at The Fountain Grove sometime in 2016.
Since then, Paltongan said, at least 108 house units have been completed. Of which, 38 owners have moved in and others are currently in the process of accepting their units.
“We continue to construct more houses,” the official said, adding that they look forward to seeing soon the children playing at various relocated playgrounds, the elders walking and doing their exercise activities at the sidewalk, as well as other members of the community enjoying the many amenities the development offers.
The Fountain Grove has an initial inventory of 768 residential lots, and at least 50 percent of which were already sold.
Paltongan expressed optimism and confidence that with Negros Occidental and Bacolod City on their way to recovery from the ill effects of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic and as the local economy improves, all of the units will be fully sold in two to three years time.
“We want it to be a place where neighbors can congregate,” Paltongan said, adding that the property is poised to become a vibrant community of homeowners.
The two-storey community clubhouse with function halls is just among the many amenities to be featured by the neighborhood. Other modern amenities include multi-purpose hall, basketball court, parks , children’s playground, swimming pool, kiddie pool, and open gardens, among others, that are exclusively for its residents.
Paltongan said the clubhouse will soon be turned over to the homeowners so they can think of ways to enhance and utilize it for various purposes like meetings, zumba activity, anniversaries, weddings and other celebrations.
Like other developers, Paltongan said, it’s also the mission of Suntrust to create vibrant communities where the people are happily living together. “That’s the representation of having a clubhouse, because they will now have an assembly place for people to meet, enjoy and develop better relations among the neighborhood.”
In terms of first-class amenities, The Fountain Grove has four phases namely Bellagio, Trevi, Tivoli, and Montjuic named after famous fountains around the world. It also offers modern designed houses to its future owners. The featured house models include Ashlyn, Brielle, Charlotte and Dalton.
For his part, Suntrust Properties First Vice President- Sales and Marketing Jerry Rubis said The Fountain Grove is now a growing and rising community.
For more than five years, people can see a lot of developments already, Rubis said.
“Road developments are done, [some] houses are here already, the community is growing and we are now selling this at P11, 000 to P13,000 per square meter from the previous P6,500 per square meter,” he added.
Meanwhile, also present at the blessing of the clubhouse were joint venture partners, Analiza and Felipe Lacson Jr., and other Suntrust officials including Project Manager Engineer Cedric Chester Corpuz and Vice President for Operations Isias Berdin Jr., among others. Contractors, some homeowners, and other partners also witnessed the blessing rites officiated by Rev. Fr. Prakash Xalxo.*
