Megaworld’s Upscale Scandinavian-inspired Development is Set to Rise in Cavite
Taking inspiration from Scandinavian architecture and hyyge (a defining characteristic of Danish lifestyle that engenders a feeling of wellness and contentment), property giant Megaworld’s first upscale residential project is set to rise in Trece Martires City, Cavite. Named The Arden Botanical Estate, this 251-hectare development will be put up amid nature, surrounded by natural groves, waterways, lush greeneries, parks, and jogging paths.
The Arden Botanical Village (which will take up 18-hectares of the property) will have 329 lots ranging from 280 to 609 square metres. The village will be home to amenities such as thematic bridges, walkways, bike lanes, clubhouse, and interactive water features. A natural swimming pool, which utilises a natural filtration root system, will also be built.
The project is spearheaded and designed by renowned Filipino landscape architect and environmental planner Paulo Alcazaren. A sustainable estate, the project introduces Centrera Park where residents can be as one with nature. “Arden Botanical Village will be built around the natural features that thrive in the estate, providing purposeful, liveable spaces for its residents. Because the location is naturally blessed with greenery that one might not find in any other residential villages, we want to preserve and highlight them in our development,” says Eugene Em Lozano, Megaworld’s vice president for sales and marketing.
Lot prices will range from PHP18,000-PHP22,000 per square metre, and each house will be done in a minimalist Scandinavian design style, featuring clean lines and panoramic windows that look out to the verdant landscape and surrounding greenery.
“Future residents will find themselves enjoying quiet moments with nature around the village, promoting not just physical wellness, but also improving social and mental wellness. This residential development’s suburban charm and gorgeous, unique landscape make it a perfect setting for personal retreats, even for the generations to come,” adds Lozano.
Expected to be completed in 2024, the estate, which is 1.5 hours away from Makati’s Central Business District and an hour away from Ninoy Aquino International Airport, will continue to be developed in the next 10 years, with more amenities in the pipeline.
