The Covid-19 pandemic was a game changer for many developers. Interestingly, the provincial market allowed developers to promote sustainability, affordability and stability in their respective marketing segments.
For CitihomesHomes Builder and Development Inc. President Rosie Wang, the pandemic was an eye opener as it allowed the company to pursue the green agenda and evaluate thoroughly the effects of mass urbanization of the environment.
“This journey helped Citihomes realize that it is possible to develop projects viably even with ecologically conscious features. We made new strong partnerships with our suppliers, learned how to gauge our business’s impacts on the environment, and discover a new vision as a real estate company going forward. We are committed to this journey, and enjoin all developers to do the same,” Wang said.
Through Liora Homes Naic, MyCitiHomes walks the talk by installing sustainable features in the project. According to CitiHomes assistant vice president for business planning Spike Alphonsus Ching, each unit will be equipped with a 1.64kWp roof-mounted solar panel system, a 700-liter rainwater harvest tank and a freshwater reservoir tank at the back, which can generate savings up to 30 to 35 percent in power and water bills respectively. Once completed, Liora Homes Naic’s 5.49 megawatt peak capacity will become the largest residential solar rooftop farm not only in the Philippines but in Southeast Asia as well.
Moreover, the Philippine Green Building Council (PHIlGBC) awarded Liora Homes 3-stars certification under the Stage 1 category of the Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE), equivalent to Exemplary Performance in housing development.
