Not to be missed: Green condos in the Philippines

The Philippines is now home to many real estate developments, especially high-rise condos.  However, the proliferation of tall buildings has negative impact on the environment; that’s why most real estate developers and building contractors have started incorporating eco-friendly structure designs in their projects.

Basically, what makes a building eco-friendly is its energy efficiency and sustainability.  According to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), to make a condo environment friendly, it has to maximize the use of natural resources, which promotes minimum waste of water, energy, and other natural materials.  It also has to use construction materials that are recyclable and cost-efficient.

Paseo Verde, Las Pinas City

Though located along the busy Real Street, Paseo Verde still offers its residents a serene and green environment. Registered with the Philippine Green Building Council, Paseo Verde is considered the first eco-friendly condo in the Philippines. Its amenities include a swimming pool, a clubhouse, and a landscaped site development.

Escalades at 20th Avenue, Quezon City

Escalades at 20th Avenue exudes calmness through its green architecture. Situated in the heart of Cubao, this township project features six cost energy efficient buildings, wide open spaces, a tropical Asian-inspired garden, jogging path, playground, and picnic areas. The buildings’ corridors welcome natural sunlight, which is good for ventilation.

Primavera Residences, Cagayan De Oro

Primavera Residences is the first eco-friendly building in Cagayan De Oro, the capital city of the province of Misamis Oriental in Mindanao. It ensures a more efficient consumption of natural resources, particularly water and energy.

Its rooftops have photovoltaic solar panels, which help produce renewable energy. It also provides natural lighting and ventilation, which protects residents from heat even during the summer. What’s more, it has a green inner courtyard, which makes the building’s indoor air quality even cooler and fresher.

Apart from its green features, Primavera Residences also offers amenities such as a multipurpose hall, swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym, restuarants, shops, and 24/7 security. It also faces the tranquil Macajalar Bay.
