Real estate developer Bria Homes has been pushing for sustainable lifestyles in its fifty-plus communities nationwide, and more recently in Davao, where it is building three communities: Bria Homes Tagum, Bria Homes Panabo, and Bria Homes Digos.
“Given the current climate crisis, we encourage our homeowners to foster environmental awareness at all times, especially because, as the past has often demonstrated, the Philippines is particularly vulnerable to major catastrophes,” explained Bria Homes president Red Rosales. “We are integrating sustainability in the lives of Bria homeowners. We make it part of their lifestyles by building comfortable, well-built homes in good shape and preserve these for the next generation. We also urge them to optimize the developments’ vast open, walkable spaces for fitness and recreation.”
In the center of things
Bria Homes Tagum, situated in the “Palm City of the South,” is just a few minutes’ ride from the city proper, close to Pioneer Avenue and Daang Maharlika Highway.
Bria Homes Panabo, known as the “Banana Capital of the Philippines,” is nestled between Davao City and Tagum, with agro-tourism sites found in nearby towns.
Bria Homes Digos, located near the Davao del Sur Provincial Capitol, is close to Digos city center.
Prospective Davao residents may choose from three house models in Bria Tagum and Bria Digos: rowhouse Elena (22 sq. m. floor area and 36 sq. m. lot area); two-storey townhouse Bettina (44 sq.m. floor area and 36 sq.m. lot area); and single firewall Alecza (36 sq.m. floor area and 81 sq.m. lot area). BRIA Panabo offers Bettina and Alecza.
Keeping track of homeowners’ welfare
The developments are secured by 24-hour CCTV coverage, guardhouses, and perimeter walls. Recreational facilities include basketball courts, jogging paths, and kiddie playgrounds.
Solar-powered streetlights have been installed to reduce the development’s carbon footprint. According to Rosales, solar lights source their energy from the sun, allowing them to save on power and maintenance costs while lighting up the streets from dusk until dawn. “Because of these, residents feel safe to navigate our premises at night,” he pointed out.
Another sustainable initiative in the developments is Sentro, the center of convergence for Bria homeowners. Sentro houses Bria’s amenities, which include a health center, day care center, senior citizen center, and barangay center.
Interested homebuyers can check out the projects through Bria’s 360 virtual tours via the propprty developer’s website and facebook page.
