Aspire Homes Highland offers low-cost homes in Oro

ASPIRE Homes Highland is offering prospect homeowners a more economic option by providing low-cost homes in Cagayan de Oro.

The newest socialized and economic housing project will construct 306 residential units. The project aims to provide decent and safe housing to Tropical Storm Sendong-affected families and low income earners who are HDMF (Home Development Mutual Fund) members.

The residential units are of high quality yet offer subsidized cost, great accessibility, safe community living, fast turnover, and a modernized type of architectural concept.

On April 19, Aspire Homes Highland held its inauguration at its location in Barangay Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro City. It is a joint project of Community Developers and Construction Corporation (CDCC), a subsidiary of Phinma Property Holdings Corporation (PPHC) and the Social Action Center Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro and in partnership with the local government unit of Cagayan de Oro and HDMF.

Archbishop Antonio Ledesma of the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro attended the inauguration together with George Richard Siton who did the Turnover of Site Development Plan to President of Muslim Christian Association Omairah Mardan with Astrid Bana who spoke in behalf of Mardan.

Roberto Laviña, President and chief executive officer of Phinma Property Holdings Corporation was also present at the inauguration.

“We basically have three legs in Phinma; education, energy, and the property and shelter. This project is housing the bottom of the pyramid, or Pabahay para sa mga nasa laylayan ng lipunan,” said Laviña.

According to Roberto Nuez, vice president in Construction Management Division of Phinma Properties, the project is a 2.4-hectare property with 306 duplex units that have a 51-square-meter lot area and a 22.50-square-meter floor area.

“Hopefully, at the end of this year, homeowners can now transfer to their new homes,” said Nuez noting on the housing project which will be finished in October this year.

Officials also added that the success of the project will not just end with providing decent and affordable homes but, it will also be responsible for undertaking the maintenance, upkeep and upgrading of the buildings, common areas, amenities, and facilities through the cooperation and participation of the homeowners.

“I would like to thank the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro who was with us from day 1 when Sendong struck the city in December 17, 2011. Until today, 1, 945 days have passed and the archdiocese is with us. I would like to mention that this project is very significant. This is a Muslim Christian Association. We would like to prove that Muslim and Christians can live harmoniously together. And thank you Phinma Properties for making this dream come true,” said Astrid Bana in behalf of Mardan’s response to the turnover of site development plan.
