A mid-rise residential development has broken ground in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon some 30 kilometers southeast of Cagayan de Oro City. Dream Residences is the second project of Yega Development Corporation - it is also the developer of Smart Condominium in uptown Cagayan de Oro.
The venture is a result of Yega Development Corporation president and CEO Zackie Harris' dream - to establish a living space in Northern Mindanao where the climate is just right.
Barangay San Miguel in Manolo Fortich definitely suits Harris' dream - temperature here drops to as low as 18°C at night. And just a stone's throw away is the famed Del Monte golf course.
There are four choices of units available here in Dream Residences - each with a choice of view of the golf course or the dream swimming pools that will surreally surround the villas.
The dream swimming pools are Harris' personal touch - as early as childhood, he has dreamt of living in an abode surrounded by sparkling waters.
There are studio suites, mixed use units, country homes and pool villas with floor area as large as 100 sq. m.
Future residents will also have the option to purchase units with varied fixtures - from standard to smart to supreme package.
The supreme package already comes with a modular kitchen, dual electric cooktop stove, kitchen fixtures, range hood, closets & cabinets, coffee table set, water dispenser, queen size bed with massage bed, sofa, air conditioner, microwave, refrigerator, television, shower enclosure or bathtub and shower heater.
Harris said residents will have the option to purchase solar panels for their electricity needs, making Dream Residences the most environment friendly living space outside Cagayan de Oro.
To maximize this reality, parking slots will be placed outside the living campus itself.
Residents will have the option to jog or use battery-operated carts to get to their vehicles.
And then Dream Residences will have its own sewage treatment plant.
As Harris puts it, "It is a paradigm shift, a change of habits."
First turnover of units is expected in 2022.
