Taft Properties to launch upscale subdivision in Cebu city

After a series of successful condominium offerings, Taft Properties is set to launch another project, this time in a horizontal development within Beverly Hills subdivision, Cebu city. For the affluent Cebuanos who prefer a house over a condominium unit and for those looking for an ideal property to invest but cannot find anything anymore within Cebu city, this is for you.

A subdivision within a subdivision, this 6-hectare project offers a privileged privacy within Beverly Hills, one of the most exclusive addresses in the city. Located in Doña Modesta Gaisano st. in Barangay Lahug but can also be conveniently accessed from Capitol via Villalon drive, this is one place that can prefix proximity to its name.

With an elevation of a few hundred feet above sea level, you can expect a cooler temperature all year round and with the matching view of the of surrounding hills and the city below, the ‘home of the gods’ can soon be yours too.

Six more Symfoni projects in two years

Sometimes there are deals too good to be true, you ask several times to confirm the veracity of the information, just to be sure. That’s how the market responded to Symfoni, the affordable condominium brand of TAFT Properties when  it was first introduced late last year. High-end location at a low price. Mid-rise development so buyers can look forward to a low density and faster completion of their homes. And without compromising the amenities, monthly amortization is less than eight thousand pesos.

Like an orchestra after a good performance, Symfoni at Nichols (the maiden project at Nichols Heights, Guadalupe, Cebu city) received a rousing standing ovation from Cebuanos, taking all the units in less than six months and still yearning for more. Symfoni carries the trademark of a Metro Sale, the much-anticipated events of Metro Stores, where consumers are treated to real bargain, value-for-money deals. Metro Stores is a sister company of TAFT Properties.


During the groundbreaking ceremony of the first Symfoni last Oct 27 2015, Engr. Chris G. Narciso, president of Taft Property Venture and Development Corp or TAFT Properties, announced that there will be six more Symfoni projects in the next two years. And it is just the short term goal of the homegrown developer. Engr. Narciso also hinted at Metro Manila and Legaspi city in Albay as the probable locations of Symfoni two and three.

TAFT Properties is also the developer of Horizons 101, the towering landmark in General Maxilom avenue and the upcoming Taft East Gate complex within the bustling Central Business District(CBD). It has also partnered with international developer, Hongkong Land for a mega township development called Mandani Bay.

With this string of blockbuster projects across market segments, Taft Properties is obviously hitting the right notes and playing the right chords.

3. JOINT VENTURE WITH HONGKONG LAND.

Corp. It was later identified as a subsidiary of TAFT. HK Land is one of the largest developers in Asia with notable projects such as Marina Bay Sands in Singapore and One Central in Macau.
