Raffles apartments sell briskly

By Dennis D. Estopace
Business Mirror

Cash flowed in eight hours in a thousand-square-meter hotel room here as the country’s wealthiest snapped up apartment units, the cheapest of which is more than a quarter of a million dollars for a one-bedroom unit.

Kingdom Hotel Investment Inc. (KHI) sold on Saturday over a hundred suites of their high-end Raffles Suites and Residences Manila, which the company expects completely built by the second half of 2010.

According to KHI executives, those sold comprised 80 percent of the project’s first phase, representing $50 million or P2.25 billion of sales.

That sets both a Philippine record for residences sold and dollar volume and a Raffles record for residences sold and dollar volume, KHI’s Philippine office representatives said. Selling of the total 220 Raffles Residences units at one- to four-bedroom cuts began 8 a.m. Saturday at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. By midafternoon, the Dubai, the United Arab Emirates-headquartered firm already sold all 19 one-bedroom units at the 11th floor where the residential space begins and one of four four-bedroom units at the topmost 30th floor.

A four-bedroom, unfurnished penthouse unit between 383 and 402 square meters (sq m) has a $1.8-million minimum tag price. At the current foreign exchange rates, that spells P81 million.

Some 200 buyers were shielded from members of the press by a white seven-foot wall. KHI staff guarded the entrance to the buyer’s area.

“Are all the people here buyers?” a Filipina with her daughter asked aloud to complain about the lack of seats at the foyer.

KHI also declined to reveal the identity of the first buyer of the penthouse worth P0.2 million per sq m.

A one-bedroom unit of up to 82 sq m has an initial offer price of up to $350,000 each. KHI has allotted 80 units of this type for sale.

The company was also selling nine two-bedroom units of between 124 and 164 sq m at an initial price of up to $390,000. Some 45 of the three-bedroom units, meanwhile, are up for grabs, with the large-size cuts at $1.25 million each.

Bryan John Turner, KHI general manager of sales, told reporters earlier the company is investing P4.5 billion for the 30-story hotel and condominium building in Makati City.

However, the firm’s 2007 Annual Report said initial investment for the Raffles Manila project is at $153 million (P6.732 billion at US$1=P44) and would be finished by the second half of 2010.

Turner said KHI is targeting a market composed of local “chief executive officers and prominent vice presidents.” A third of their target market are expatriates, especially those from Hong Kong and Singapore, according to Turner.

The apartment units will be spread from the 11th to the 30th floor of the building, while the ninth floor and 10th floor are being reserved for the Raffles Hotel. Fairmont Makati Hotel will occupy the first up to eighth floor.

Turner said KHI began the project after buying the 1.2-hectare lot from Ayala Land Inc., which owns 20-percent equity.

“It’s a good investment in the long-term,” a female buyer who declined to be named told the BusinessMirror.

Rising steel and cement prices, the cost of transporting these, and tightening consumer spending have struck concern among realtors that the Philippine property sector’s growth could slow.

Consultant CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) Philippines Inc., which earlier tagged the Philippine market as still among the “hottest” this year, said demand for residential properties market “remains strong.”

In a statement, CBRE Philippines said prices for high-end residential condominiums in Makati City have risen from P90,000 per sq m in 2006 to P130,000 per sqm this year.

The firm credits such price spike to “low interest rates and flexible financing terms.”

Raffles Manila is KHI’s third Raffles Hotel project after Raffles Praslin in Seychelles, Africa and Raffles Da Nang in China Beach, Vietnam.

i counted roughly 60 hi-rises are u/c in metro manila at page 1 of this thread, excluding topped-off buildings (i've read there are around 30 in KL, for context). can you imagine how the metro manila skyline would look like in five years? and there are at least 4 credible developers launching 65+ storey skyscrapers (discovery, landmark 66, gramercy, shang at the fort -- please correct me if i'm wrong, but these will be over 300 meters each, right?). all i can say is "wow!"

Metro manila is a big city... but if you break it down into districts, paranaque, makati, pasig, mandaluyong, pasay etc... you will find out that each district has skyscrapers u/c. if kuala lumpur has 30, Metro Manila must have more than that.. Condotels and skyscraper condominiums are the in- thing today in metro manila with the middle class rich fast growing in numbers and buying condominiums...

RP is Booming but will still stay the same

The Philippines ir really progressing but Metro Manila(NCR) will stay the same--dirty, smelly, and polluted. if only thise people living on the streets are well Disciplined then Manila will be a nice place like most major SE Asian Cities like Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. Look, when landin in our airport(NAIA) what do you first notice? Illegal Shanties surrounding the airport. Now, what will happen if a Jet Plane Crashes(hopefully not) there? Instead of just the passengers dying, the death toll will be doubled. Next, I once read a newspaper when I was having a holiday in the Philippines stating that MANILA BAY is the cause of pollution to East Asian Countries. That is so Embarassing! And It would be better if the Government will start Phasing Out old vehicles around Manila and convert Jeepneys into Air-Conditiond Buses. But, sadly no because of the corruction in the country Shame on the Philippines

Just take a look at Baguio City, years ago it was really very clean and the air was always fresh and the streets are clean. But now, it just turned upsode down and BC is now called as RP's most polluted City

===Sorry for letting it out===

Wow, So Many Ongoing building construction today in Metro Manila,
due to huge demand for office, residential, BPO centers in the Phils.
It surpassed even Dubai, Qatar, Singapore and other current business
parks combined. It look like mushroom sprouting all over Manila.

i couldnt help but agree with many of your points...our country is really in the pits right now...even these developments doesnt change the fact that there are many poor, hungry, and uneducated people living in our midst...in fact, some of these recent developments are actually making the chasm between the rich and the powerless wider...

ah, if only people were more disciplined...
