Brittany Launches Luxury Condo Tower with Wellness in Mind

Filed under: News — Cara Deanne Babida @ 4:00 am

Outdoor yoga decks, private parks, and serene gardens are some of the new and hottest things in luxury residential buildings, which signal the rise in mindfulness and well-being as the mantra in property developments.

Mindfulness is a form of energy that we generate when we return our attention to our bodies and become aware of what is going on in the present moment, both within and around us. We become conscious of our breathing and return to our bodies, fully engaged in ourselves and our activities.

The energy of mindfulness helps us touch life deeply throughout the day, whether we’re brushing our teeth, washing the dishes, walking to work, eating a meal, or driving the car. We can be mindful while standing, walking, or lying down, or while speaking, listening, working, and playing.

Practicing mindfulness within oneself and with others in the community is one of the priorities of Brittany Corporation, the luxury residential arm of the country’s largest homebuilder, Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc.

To evoke the sensation of an ultimate retreat, Brittany promotes the mind-body-spirit connection and holistic wellness through Crosswinds; its 100-hectare exclusive enclave tucked away on the face of the lush, sweeping natural hills of Tagaytay.

Inspired by the natural beauty of Switzerland that shines just as bright, with verdant forests and glistening mountain peaks, Crosswinds is a  world on its own that features lot-only properties and luxury homes and residential buildings in Swiss-chalet styles with large windows and balconies that unite the interior outside and allow the residents to enjoy the mountain soul of typical Swiss-chalet architecture.

Over the last years, Crosswinds has been revitalized by developing new and unique retail concepts, luxury condominium buildings and a host of other facilities that have transformed the exclusive community into a year-round destination.

 

An Exclusive Swiss Condo Living Experience

Encompassing 2.8 hectares of Crosswinds is Alpine Villas, a charming enclave consisting of mid-rise towers in the style of Swiss chalets that are surrounded with charming European-inspired cafes and restaurants.

Inspired by the most beautiful Swiss chalet villages, Alpine Villas’ first three towers, namely Bernese, Blanc, and Brienz, are situated 540 meters above sea level and command an excellent view of Crosswinds’ exclusive community, lush green foliage of pine trees, open green spaces, and the commercial strip.

The latest tower to complete the first row of the Alpine Villas luxury condo development is Biel, a 9-story tower that offers a total of 58 units with a mix of studio and one-bedroom with balcony with sizes ranging between 30 to 90 sqm. Prices will range from PHP 9M to PHP 31M.

 

Biel: An Immersion in Nature

Biel is inspired by the concept of bathing one’s senses in the forest atmosphere. At the heart of this concept is the idea of slowing down, practicing mindfulness, and reconnecting with nature – a quest that has taken on added significance since the pandemic began.

Built on the principles of nature-inspired, sustainable design, Biel is designed to reflect Crosswinds natural beauty, incorporating the elements of wood and other natural materials with thirty percent of the luxury condo development dedicated to green open spaces.

In addition, Biel best represents Brittany’s prime development as it offers bigger unit sizes, more open spaces and upgraded features. It stands 540 meters above sea level, Biel commands the best view of the exclusive Crosswinds community, with units facing the morning sun on the southeast side of the building.

It is close to lifestyle hotspots within Crosswinds such as Ruined Project, Napa, Cafe Voila and Coffee Project, where one can enjoy a short walk to the commercial stretch in just around five minutes. Biel is also just a kilometer away from Crosswinds’ unique retail concepts and new attractions such as Windmill Lausanne, Cafe Yama, Dear Joe and Andersen’s Bakery.

Biel will also offer an impressive list of amenities focused on increasing the residents’ sense of well-being. It will offer well-designed, space-efficient vertical residences with a mix of one- and two-bedroom balconies and equipped with 24/7 safety protocols including a CCTV system in all common areas, Wi-Fi, and building systems.

The units were also designed with versatility in mind, another nod to the pandemic and how it has changed the property owners to utilize their living space, allowing them to create additional space and have more flexibility in their own unit.

Moreover, Biel will offer passive and active spaces such as a straightforward exercise room and a curated gym, private park, kids’ outdoor play area, pet park, biking and jogging trails, function hall and tranquility garden.

 

A Year-Round Destination

Residents at Biel will be spoilt for choice in terms of nature-inspired activities. Beyond the breathtaking scenic views and  acre upon acre of land studded with thousands of pine trees, Brittany has invested heavily in developing the Crosswinds community with a promise of a stunning retreat no matter which time of the year.

Crosswinds offers a slew of outdoor recreation, from cycling and jogging paths to beautiful running and hiking trails. Other notable developments in Crosswinds aside from it’s luxury condo development includes a luxury hotel, The Crosswinds Suites as well as retail concepts that offer gorgeous scenery on top of sumptuous meals.

 

More Than  Just an Investment

COVID-19 has brought about a shift in priorities – people have begun to focus more on enjoying life and living in the moment. This change in mindset extends to what properties people are choosing to invest in. For most property buyers, the most valuable luxury is time and convenience and being able to live their best lives.

To that end, properties at Crosswinds hold great appeal. People can now understand that they are buying something to enjoy as well as a smart and stable investment. Crosswinds Tagaytay and its luxury condo development Alpine Villas serve many curious homebuyers looking to push the boundaries of what will help them live the best of everything life has to offer.

 

Crosswinds Tagaytay truly revels in the beauty of nature

With cold breezes, lush pine trees, and magnificent flora year-round, one can practice meditation and mindfulness every day, informally outside in nature. It is indeed the ideal property for those who seek comfort, tranquility, and mindfulness retreat away from the city.

Brittany Corporation, the company behind this exclusive, nature-inspired enclave, also offers a fine selection of home designs, luxury condo, and lot-only properties in excellent locations such as Portofino in Alabang, La Posada in Sucat, and Georgia Club in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

Savoir-Faire: Grand Investors’ Night

Filed under: News — Cara Deanne Babida @ 3:42 am

Everyone missed the night-outs, meeting new people, and interacting with colleagues and friends personally, not through the screens of our phones. After the pandemic hiatus, people are slowly going back to their normal lives outside the four corners of their rooms. Last April 29, 2022, Savoir-Faire, the grand investors’ night hosted by Brittany Corporation, gave its sellers and clients a chance to catch up over some cocktails and drinks.

Savoir-Faire: Brittany Grand Investors' Night

The Savoir-Faire started around 6 o’clock, as dusk approached. Best paired with the venue’s theme, the attendees were also in on their posh looks. The lights, ambiance, the scent, the drinks, the food, the ladies, and the gentlemen all depict elegance, just like Brittany. Everyone was dressed in semi-formal attire, and the women were all dressed up in cocktail dresses.

The event occurred at Sixty Four, a new retro-themed bistro located at Evia Lifestyle Center in Daang- Hari, Las Piñas City. The place has an interior of vintage fashion that goes very well with the star of the night, Brittany. Elegance was seen from inside to outside. This was one of the first times Brittany had synergized with other brands.

As you enter the place, you will be welcomed with grace and style as the place was inspired by the famous song by The Beatles, When I am Sixty Four. The place has vintage walls, as well as a display of vinyl records that you can ask to play, wall artwork, and more. The event took place on the second floor of the café, giving the attendees some privacy.

Brittany partners flaunt the beauty of Brittany

The event was planned to give Brittany’s accredited sellers an opportunity to connect with potential investors as they flaunt the luxury developments of Brittany. As the night gets deeper, multiple sellers also impart their wisdom and share their knowledge of real estate and property investments.

The goal of the Savoir-Faire was to give the sellers a chance to show what Brittany is all about; Elegance, Luxury, and Finesse. Vista Land creates these events to make sure sellers feel their value for being a part of the growing family. Savoir-Faire is also the best venue to discuss the project features and real estate outlook and spread the word about exclusive promos and discounts.

The night was indeed full of laughter and joy as sellers were able to close deals and gain potential investors for their projects. The clients responded with an overwhelming interest in the top-tier projects of Vista Alabang.

Vista Alabang is a prime development of the most luxurious houses in Daang Hari with its Italian-inspired architectural design, strategic location, and world-class amenities. Situated at Vista Alabang, Daang Hari, Brittany by Vista Land offers houses such as Ghiberti luxury home, a ready home with a 349 square meter lot area perfect for bigger families.

Why is Brittany by Vista Land a good investment?

Brittany, a brand that screams nothing but investments worth of their value

Aside from the grand and glamorous thematic homes to own, the properties are situated inside a community where influential and elite people reside. This boosts confidence for people living in it, giving them a sense of satisfaction and the feeling of the good life. Brittany aims to provide high-quality living and a community of refinement, elegance, and comfort.

The state-of-the-art facilities and satisfactory services also make a living in communities inspired by the world-class destinations exceptional. The place is situated near the business districts of Metro Manila, schools and universities, restaurants, supermarkets, malls, parks, hospitals, and other places necessary for a person’s everyday life.

Living in the community gives you everything you need within a 5-minute drive from the Evia Lifestyle Center, SOMO Mall, 10 minutes away from the Asian Hospital Medical Center, 20 minutes away from BGC, and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, and 30 minutes from the Makati Central Business District. It’s also a couple of minutes away from big universities such as De La Salle University Dasmarinas.

Talks are always smoother over a cup of coffee or some cocktails. This is what everyone missed when everyone was required to stay at home. Though in this technological age, everything is possible when you have a smartphone and the internet, it is still different when you are talking face-to-face. The trust you can gain by meeting the person eye to eye and the bond you build with hands shaking are experiences that cannot be replaced with engagements done through the internet. Sellers and clients were given the venue to talk business in the most comfortable setting.

Sixty Four was filled with new meetings and new opportunities. Of course, still abiding by the safety precautions, the night ended with closed deals and satisfied partners.

Top 10 Filipino Businessmen in 2021

Filed under: News — Jonathan Tenorio @ 9:06 am

 

“To be truly wealthy you have to have a motivation bigger than just making money.”

Vista Land & Lifescapes founder Mr. Manny Villar shared this inspiring quotation. Behind these powerful words are the experiences he gained through the years that taught him to achieve his dreams by coming up with his deep whys. The intention to be rich will end too quickly if it is being fueled by the desire to just earn lots of money because if the time comes that you did not get money in exchange for all your hardwork you will quit easily, but if you know your deep why from the beginning of your venture, there’s no way you will quit easily. As he stated, you got to have a motivation bigger than money, and that motivation will sustain you, keep you going, and see you through till you reach your goal.

Infrastructure is vital to a nation’s development as it directly affects economic growth. One of the main reasons behind the need for excellent roads is to enable faster transportation of people and goods to other cities, regions, and countries. Without the existence of functional physical infrastructure to serve this purpose, there will be delays that will eventually result to great losses.

As early as 2014, the New York Times reported a loss of 876 billion pesos a year in lost productivity and wasted energy according to a study conducted by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). In a later study by JICA in 2018, the traffic congestion being experienced in Metro Manila costs the nation about 3.5 billion losses per day.

This information just proves the importance of infrastructure and how it will prompt—and even lead—the nation’s economic growth by enhancing connectivity, productivity, and efficiency.

What is the Build, Build, Build Program?

To address the so-called “achilles heel” of the nation’s economic development, the administration of President Duterte announced its centerpiece program following his victory in 2016 which is the Build, Build, Build (BBB) program.

President Duterte aims for this massive program to finally usher the “Golden Age of Infrastructure” of the Philippines by allotting a whopping budget of around 9 trillion pesos for the construction of major infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, airports, and other transportation systems that will go beyond the end of his term in 2022.

Projects under the BBB Program

The BBB program, spearheaded by Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar and Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arturo Tugade, originally listed the following projects:

  • 75 infrastructure projects
  • Five flood control projects
  • Four energy facilities
  • Three social infrastructures

Some of these are flagship projects that have a combined cost of P2.2 trillion. These are considered high-impact and intended to facilitate the efficient transport of goods and people, encourage rural development, and create millions of jobs by 2022.

Even with these massive numbers, the government announced a modification from this list a few months before the lockdown started—making the original 75 to become about a hundred projects to combine the ones already in the works and those that were started by the previous administrations.

What are the latest updates on Build, Build, Build projects?

DPWH Secretary Mark Villar recently said this statement in an interview when asked about the BBB program: “We are proud of President Duterte’s BBB program. Over the past five years, the program generated six million jobs. The government built more than 29,000 kilometers of road, over 5,000 bridges, and 150,000 school buildings. We’re able to accomplish a lot despite pandemic.”

Shelved Projects under BBB

It seems that BBB remains the pride and legacy of President Duterte’s administration despite the shelving of some flagship projects originally listed in the program. As of November 2019, only 32 of the original 75 projects remained but added with 68 new projects which bulked the list to about a hundred, as previously stated above.

Some of the bridges that will take longer to build have been replaced by local roads, and massive projects that were scheduled to be completed beyond President Duterte’s administration such as the Luzon-Samar and Bohol-Leyte Link Bridges and the Cebu-Bohol and Cebu-Negros bridges have been dropped. Along with these are 10 bridge projects in Metro Manila that were supposedly due next year, 2023.

Still, BBB Delivered to its Promise

Secretary Mark Villar gave a detailed statement on the status of the BBB projects last June 2021. He said, “A total of 6.5 million workers made ‘Build, Build, Build’ a reality. We are confident that President Duterte’s promise of decongesting EDSA by 2022 will become a reality. In one month, we will open the Pantaleon-Estrella Bridge which will connect Makati and Mandaluyong within 12 minutes. Before the term of the President ends, we will complete the construction of several big-ticket projects, including the Kalayaan Bridge linking Taguig and Pasig, Binondo-Intramuros Bridge, Mindanao Avenue Extension, Katipunan Avenue Extension, and the NLEX-SLEX Connector project which will connect Skyway Stage 3 and NLEX Harbor Link.”

Secretary Arturo Tugade added, “Since 2016, the Department of Transportation has completed a total of 212 airport projects and working on 102 more. This 2021, we are set to inaugurate various completed airport projects in Clark, Catarman, Butuan, Busuanga, Zamboanga, Siquijor, General Santos, and Bicol. Across the archipelago, we have also completed a total of 446 seaport projects, while 117 more are ongoing. New railways are also being built and existing rail lines are getting much-needed upgrades. In fact, this month, we will finally inaugurate the LRT-2 East Extension, and before the year ends, the massive rehabilitation of the MRT-3 and the Common Station will be completed. To date, we have a total of 1,090 kilometers of railway length with ongoing project implementation. To decongest EDSA, we have established the EDSA Busway, and built Bike Lanes to promote active transport.”

DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain said in a virtual briefing February of 2022 that 18 more out of the 112 infrastructure flagship projects are scheduled to be completed at the end of President Duterte’s administration.

What are the future plans for the Build, Build, Build Program?

The continuation of the BBB program is one of the major concerns that is being asked to the presidential aspirants for the upcoming 2022 elections in the Philippines. The government agencies working on the program like DPWH are hopeful that the next administration will continue these massive efforts to develop excellent infrastructure across the nation.

Undersecretary Sadain said this in line with the question about the future of the BBB program, “We have seen also that the viability of implementing these projects are so strong because of the huge economic impact that will be brought to the country. We believe that these can be sustained by the next administration.”

Sadain enumerated the following as the big-ticket projects under the BBB program that he hopes the new administration to continue are:

  • Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge
  • Panglao-Tagbilaran City Offshore Connector
  • Guicam Bridge
  • Three Tawi-Tawi Bridges
  • Panay-Guimaras-Negros Link Bridge
  • Cebu-Mactan Bridge
  • Coastal [Road Construction]
  • Panguil Bay Bridge
  • Samal Island-Davao City Connector

As for DOTr, the projects mentioned that are considered of high importance are:

  • North Commuter Railway
  • Metro Manila Subway

Vince Dizon, Chief Executive Officer of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), believes that the BBB program is setting up the foundation for the next administration when it comes to infrastructure. He said, “We only have less than one year left in the Duterte administration. Whoever the next president will be, it is incumbent upon the next administration to not only continue, but to fast-track all the good work that has been done under the leadership of President Duterte.”

The future is still uncertain about the BBB program but it was surely a great start to hopefully open more doors when it comes to further infrastructure developments in the country.
