Ciudades is envisioned as a new township with all the requisite elements to respond to the expansion needs of Davao. Its development signals the rise of new communities, endless choices – a premier investment proposition inviting people to live, work, play, shop, and grow.

Located in the Buhangin District, Ciudades will be the first large-scale integrated mixed-use, master-planned township development in Davao City. It will feature unique and trendsetting development concepts that are the first of their kind in Davao.

The name Ciudades comes from the Spanish word for "cities" and connotes adjoining areas of development. It comprises multiple components for business, commercial, industrial, leisure, and residential facilities with expansion in its blueprint for the future.

Spanning 200 hectares, Ciudades is the much anticipated "new town" development in Davao.

For an area blessed with a lush, scenic landscape and teeming with colorful fresh produce, Davao has very limited natural parks and facilities for leisure and recreation. Ciudades will change all that with El Centro - a 12-hectare commercial park that will build on the area's natural beauty. It will be the first commercial park of its kind in Davao.

Tree-lined walkways, vibrant orchid gardens, and cozy picnic grounds will be complemented by paths for cycling, running, and other family-friendly sports activities. El Centro will also feature areas suitable for schools, sports and wellness, as well as concept retail. True to its name, El Centro will serve as the township's unifying element and exclusive convergence point.

Ciudades project would be a big start for more development in Buhangin area.I wonder why until now there's no big supermarket or mall in that part of Davao City.

Lapanday township gets partner for transport, market hub development

http://businessmirror.com.ph/home/r...-partner-for-transport-market-hub-development


DAVAO CITY—The Lorenzo-owned Lapanday Properties Philippines Inc. (LPPI) has tapped the holding company of a clan that built the early landmarks of Davao City, to develop the transport and market hub of this city’s first township project.

Tapped was Northbank Holdings of the Marfori clan, which would design and construct a multimillion- peso transport terminal, and market and commercial center in a 5.7-hectare area inside the Ciudades, the city’s largest mixed-use “masterplanned property development” of the Lapanday company.

The transport and market hub complex, called Commercio Marquella, would be the latest additional feature to the township that was launched last year, which signaled the serious entry of the Lorenzos into the property-development sector.

The complex would be constructed in phases and scaled up along the way to meet the demand of the locators of the Ciudades, said Simeon P. Marfori II, President of Northbank Holdings. It would be constructed at the eastern end of the Ciudades property.

Tomas P. Lorenzo, LPPI President, and Marfori signed the memorandum of agreement on Tuesday at the Marco Polo Hotel here.

The Marforis, of Spanish lineage, would complement the Spanish-inspired Ciudades township of the Lorenzos, which carved out the township from part of its sprawling former banana plantation north of downtown.

The Ciudades , actually Mindanao’s first township development, has exclusive housing communities with a commercial park and educational, leisure, sports and recreational facilities. Integral to the development is a business and industrial hub, all within the 200-hectare along Tigatto Road, where the Lorenzo family formerly operated a banana plantation and processing area.

The housing enclaves were being developed in joint ventures with leading developers, Sta. Lucia Realty for the 19 hectares of Las Palmas Verdes Subdivision, including the Altea and Soller Subdivisions, and Robinson’s Land for the 12.8 hectares of the Nizanta Subdivision.

The Ingenue Property Concepts and Marketing Corp. has designed the township and serves as Ciudades’s marketing and consultancy firm.

The transport and market hub would also support the development of the business and industrial hub, called the First Mindanao Industrial Park (FMIP), where the Lapanday Properties designed the country’s first “BIRE District” for any township development project.

The BIRE concept stands for business, industrial, residential estate, where the three activities “are merged and organized into a master planned and green environment,” said Marcelito Roldan T. Manalili, Ingenue’s president and managing director, in an earlier interview.

The Ciudades was conceived as a contained community in itself and located only 14 kilometers north of downtown, would help decongest the downtown area.

Marfori said they would contract private bus and jeepney operators to serve the mobility needs of business and residential locators.

Seven big locators will be holding offices in the commercial and market spaces in the Commercio Marquella, Marfori said, adding that his holdings company has been talking with the other tenant businesses in the Bankerohan Public Market, one of the landmark public places developed by the Marforis in the early history of Davao City.

The Marforis have engaged later in other property developments, including the first middle- and high-end subdivisions in the city.

By the way, lemme just emphasize that Ciudades is not a subdivision like what other forumers insist....:lol: there is a residential component within it but it's a township project. It's like saying, McKinley Hills, BGC, Nuvali, or even Eton City are subdivisions coz there are residential projects within it...

Forumers need to identify what a project is primarily for, if it's primarily a subdivision with some recreational activities and commercial center - then it's indeed a subdivision.....but if it is a township project with some lots being developed by other developers for residential use, then it's a township project.....plain, simple, basic. ;) know the fact.

The thing that they need to consider is improving the roads that lead to this future modern self contained community. They need to widen the roads and improve the drainage system. Well,that's actually the problem of the local gov't in Davao and they need to do it now.
