Stateland gears for launch of more Calabarzon townships

MANILA, Philippines – As every Filipino aspires to have a quality residence in decent and well-planned communities, property developer Stateland Inc. is all set to launch more projects in Batangas, Cavite and Laguna.

Its latest project, Gran Avila, was launched in Calamba, Laguna last March for the economic housing segment while its adjacent subdivision, Casa Laguerta, caters to the socialized housing segment.

The firm said both projects offer affordable homes and carry with them the company’s hallmarks of quality and durability.

According to Stateland, it conducts pre-engineering studies to ensure the quality of land development. These include comprehensive soil investigation, the process of determining the soil bearing capacity to properly design the roads and houses and ensure its structural integrity.

A flood study is also operated to determine the finish elevation of the subdivision including road network, retaining walls and drainage system.

“Flooding is a major concern for many homeowners and the property developer wants to assure its future residents that its proper planning mitigates such occurrences from affecting its development,” the company explained.

Another technical requirement which is an integral part of its planning stage is the go-resistivity study which defines the optimum location of the water source within the project site.

“We want our residents to build their future in good communities. These are made possible through proper planning so we don’t shortcuts when we develop our projects,” said Grant Orbeta, senior vice president for planning and production.

With its almost four decades of service, Stateland ensures that site and land development works are similarly well-executed by making sure its road construction is well-developed. It has undertaken international accepted standards such as the preparation of compacted layers of base course on which the reinforced on concreter roads are poured.

Field density tests, measuring both the percentage of compaction of the backfill material and its moisture content are frequently conducted.

“Stateland’s land development unit makes sure that the soil’s compaction ratio is at the right level before any road is concreted. This guarantees that the soil is strong enough to support the road and vehicular traffic as well as avoid cracks and ruptures on the subdivision’s streets,” the company said.

The company further considered a durable perimeter when building a well-constructed subdivision stating that it helps prevent trespassers from entering the subdivision and retaining wall along the perimeter of the property provides extra supports to the soil which prevents erosion of perimeter lots.

Meanwhile, Jerome Ilagan, head of the architectural department, pointed out that meticulous design, planning and specifications are keys to Stateland’s success.

“Oftentimes, we even go beyond minimum project requirements when we specify materials. Everything is done with careful attention to detail to ensure that we provide optimum value to our clients,” Ilagan added.

Stateland, a 37-year old property developer with 30 completed projects in its portfolio, launched its newest economic project in Laguna, the Gran Avila. With the recent launching, Stateland hereby addresses the need for more residential projects in Southern Luzon.

Well-built communities

Well-built communities

Wait no more, coz we’ve got loads of choices for your dream house! Stateland communities offer durable, well-furnished and stylish houses in the most affordable prices. Its accessibility to the main roads and establishments, easy to find locations, nearness to leisure areas and complete amenities make it a great choice for starting and building your family life. 🙂

Well designed and built: Stateland’s philosophies to subdivision development

Peace of mind is a primary consideration when buying a home in a subdivision. Whether the residential community is in the city or in the suburbs; whether it is a mid-cost or an affordable housing project, knowing the way the development was planned is a major factor in deciding on your dream home.

                Stateland Inc., with a track record of almost four decades in the housing industry, realizes this necessity and makes it a point to fulfill the lifelong dream of every Filipino family by providing them quality houses in decent and well-planned communities. Bringing up your family in a well-developed, and well-built housing community is integral to how the company develops its projects. The drive to make sure each subdivision and housing component is done properly is more than just marketing hype for Stateland. It is a part and parcel of the company’s planning philosophies that have earned it a reputation for quality subdivision development. 

 

Proper subdivision planning is key to good communities

                Stateland, Inc. became a household name in the real estate industry because of its continuous delivery of products that are always hinged on high quality standards. Even before the actual house construction, the property developer conducts various pre-engineering studies to ensure the quality of land development. Its architects and engineers work with professional consultants to make sure all technical data is analyzed and taken into consideration before undergoing project planning. The land undergoes a comprehensive soil investigation, a process of determining the soil bearing capacity to properly design the roads and houses and ensure its structural integrity. Aside from soil investigation, a flood study is conducted to determine the finish elevation of the subdivision including its road network, retaining walls and drainage system. Flooding is a major concern for many homeowners and the property developer wants to assure its future residents that its proper planning mitigates such occurrences from affecting its developments. Another technical requirement that Stateland considers as an integral part of its pre-planning stage is the Geo-Resistivity study which defines the optimum location of the water source within the project site. Fault data from PHIVOLCS is also reviewed and considered before any project planning commences. As a 

property developer, Stateland is not only concerned about the physical aesthetic and durability of its houses but the community as a whole“We want our residents to build their future in good communities. These are made possible through proper planning so we don’t do shortcuts when we develop our projects” said Grant Orbeta, Senior Vice President for Planning and Production. He noted that the procedures done by the developer is a testament to its commitment to deliver only the best products to its clients This philosophy is reflected in the reputation Stateland has made for itself as a developer of durable and well-built communities.

 

 

Executing the master plan

                With a vision of delivering its commitment to its buyers’ home aspirations, Stateland ensures that site and land development works are well executed. One development aspect that the company takes pride in is its road construction. Internationally accepted standards are put in place such as the preparation of compacted layers of base course on which the reinforced concrete roads are poured. To guarantee the soil’s proper compaction, Field Density Tests (FDT) are regularly conducted. The FDT measures both the percentage of compaction of the backfill material and its moisture content. Stateland’s land development unit makes sure that the soil’s compaction ratio is at the right level before any road is concreted. This guarantees that the soil is strong enough to support the road and vehicular traffic as well as avoid cracks and ruptures on the subdivision’s streets. With years of experience in land development, Stateland’s engineers realize that a well-constructed subdivision should not only have good roads and drainage but also a durable perimeter. Aside from the fact that the perimeter fence helps prevent trespassers from entering the subdivision, the retaining wall along the perimeter of the property also supports the soil and prevents erosion of perimeter lots. Stateland’s land development team paves the way for safe and secure community living, making durability its priority and ensuring that its buyers’ investment does not depreciate from poor implementation.

 

Building homes that buyers deserve 

                The third philosophy that guides Stateland as a housing developer is probably the most crucial to its clients. The developer is known for and is proud of the quality of its houses. Arch. Jerome Ilagan, Head of the Architectural department, emphasized that meticulous design, planning and specifications are key to Stateland’s success. Stateland’s planners keep themselves updated on new products and methodologies in design and construction but always put a premium on durability. “Oftentimes, we even go beyond minimum project requirements when we specify materials. Everything is done with careful attention to details to ensure that we provide optimum value to our clients.” Architect Ilagan adds. With their proven track record in the industry, Stateland is gearing up to launch more well-built communities in Batangas, Cavite and Laguna. Gran Avila, their latest project in Calamba, was launched last March and serves its economic housing segment while its neighboring subdivision, Casa Laguerta caters to the socialized housing segment. Construction of both projects are in full swing and despite offering affordable homes, the company made sure that they carry with them the company’s hallmarks of quality and durability.

                Stateland recognizes that a house is not just a roof over one’s head. Filipinos want to live in a well-planned community and in a house that is well-built. Stateland understands this underlying need and continuously strives to develop products that live up to the company’s slogan of “Your Dream, Our Commitment”.

Banking on 35-year track record

Filipino homebuyers will always be willing to part with their hard-earned money provided that their investment is not only safe and worthy, but would promise high rates of return as well. In the case of buying a new house, it should not only be beautiful and of high quality but also located in a safe neighborhood and in easily accessible locations.

“A huge percentage of our buyers have been drawn to our projects’ locations. They want the best place and be secured of the fact that their investment will stand the test of time. They viewed our projects as solid investments since they have the potential for property appreciation or provide their families a much better shelter,” said Delie Chua, first vice president for sales and marketing of Stateland Inc. Currently enjoying remarkable market interest are the firm’s latest projects—Crystal Place and Villa San Lorenzo in Imus, Cavite; Gran Seville in Cabuyao, Laguna; Gran Avila and Casa Laguerta in Calamba, Laguna; Chester’s Place and Washington Place in Dasmariñas in Cavite.

Chua related that with the company’s 37-year track record in the real estate industry, Stateland (www.facebook.com/StatelandInc) has created unparalleled housing and community projects in key areas of Luzon.

“Since 1978, we have built more than 30 horizontal developments in Metro Manila, Cavite and Laguna so our buyers could trust us that we are experienced enough to create projects that last and desired by our target market,” she said.

Durable houses

Moreover, Chua said that since the company has a name to uphold, they made sure they only create durable houses within communities that their residents would feel proud of.

 

“Even from our inception, we already aimed at becoming a first-rate developer of residential communities. This is why we cannot compromise where we will set up the project, the quality of the materials that we will use, or the way we construct our houses, as well as the type of masterplanning that we will conceive,” said Chua.

According to her, each project is unique as Stateland tries to employ various home designs—from contemporary and Mediterranean to Spanish and modern inspired. “These houses are built with careful attention to details so as to assure the safety and satisfaction of our future residents,” Chua said.

Strategic location

Chua also related that considering their target market, Stateland ensured that each project is strategically located near major highways that could connect to several important destinations.

“Stateland Inc. believes that Filipino families deserve worthwhile living in their own land. With the perfect ambiance, tranquil environment, suitable location and affordable prices of every project, one can easily say that finally, they’re home,” Chua said.

She added that with regard to Gran Avila and its neighboring subdivision, the Casa Laguerta that have just been inaugurated, the company has initiated a project orientation for its in-house sellers and company brokers. “The orientation was held to give our in-house sellers a brief yet sufficient background on the features and quality of houses of these two newly introduced developments.”

New subdivision in Calamba

With affordable housing in mind, developer Stateland Inc. launched its newest economic housing project in the South.

Introduced to the media on March 1 was Gran Avila, its new master-planned, mid-cost housing development in Barangay Majada, Calamba, Laguna.

Stateland officials led by president Reynaldo Cometa attended the launch of the 16.25-hectare subdivision. Pag-Ibig Fund chief operating officer Darlene Marie Berberabe and Calamba City Mayor Timmy Chipeco graced the event, showing their support for the project.

Gran Avila units are affordable. Prices will range from P650,000 to P1.25 million. Divided into five phases with a total of 1,222 residential units, the subdivision will have houses varying from single-story to two-story single-attached houses and from one-story row houses to townhouses. Amenities include a clubhouse, a playground and a multipurpose hall.

The house models offer various modern designs with flexibility and functionality and is built with careful attention to detail to assure the integrity of each structure, according to the project’s information sheet.

Accessibility will not much be of an issue, as the Gran Avila is near schools, hospitals, churches and major malls. Jeepneys and tricycles are just a block away from the development.

 

What Gran Avila offers

For  Regan Uy, Stateland  first assistant vice president for marketing, since shelter is a basic need of man, “it is important to have a house of our own.”  Uy offered tips on what to look out for when checking out a residential unit. He pointed out the following come-ons that make Gran Avila stand out:

• Location. “It should be easily reachable via public transportation and near schools, government buildings and malls,” he said. Emphasizing on the Filipino’s love for shopping, he added that properties are more salable when near a mall.

• The neighborhood. “Consider the neighbors,” Uy said. “Pinoys consider only the price. But we in Stateland also want to make a very great community [for them to live in].” He said Stateland makes it a point to check on the community and the people living in it whenever it develops an area.

• Structural stability. “Our houses are durable and can stand against any condition,” Uy said. According to him,  Stateland’s 15-year structural stability warranty is not available among its competitors.

He added that in the country, structural stability is important, especially because of Filipinos’ attachment to their homes. “Kultura ng mga Filipino na ipinapamana sa mga anak natin ang mga bahay natin. (The culture of us Pinoys is that we give our homes to our children as inheritance.)”

Future plans

Stateland’s newest subdivision is already attracting a lot of prospective homeowners, Uy said, especially since a lot of these homeowners are reserving early for the units. “We had around 190 reservations, 30-40 percent of all the units in the Gran Avila.”

Uy added that most of the prospective buyers are OFWs. “They have the purchasing power, better than the locally employed ones, and they are able to save more [money] faster.”

This had challenged Gran Avila to deliver the goods, Uy added. “We are working faster and harder to finish all the units.”

On the other hand, Stateland—which has projects in Cavite, where it dominates the mid-cost housing market, and Laguna—said the Gran Avila is committed to keeping up with its adherence to quality, meticulous workmanship and compliance with industry standards in land development, and is planning to expand its projects in the area.

Delie Chua, Stateland senior vice president for sales and marketing, said: “We will be able to provide another well-built and well-developed community in the Laguna area. We are privileged to serve our hardworking countrymen with the houses they deserve for very affordable prices.”

Cometa conveyed before the distinguished guests, business partners, company officers and clients. He added that the houses developed by the company are made of fine quality construction materials. The houses they build can vary depending on the client’s preference, need and style. In Gran Avila, clients can choose from basic to complete house options from the four house model units. Mayor Chipeco also cited the housing project as a realization of every Filipinos’ dream to have a liveable community. He also mentioned that Calamba is the perfect place for the community development because of its geographical advantages and also of its naturally-friendly people.

 

Gran Avila is strategically located amid the greeneries of the South and the sprawling commercial establishments in the area.

Gran Avila also offers combined units for its row house and town house units. Stanza model, a two-storey town house with 43 square meter of floor area and provision for two bedrooms, one toilet and bath, dining and kitchen area and carport provision, can be combined with another Stanza unit, depending on the client’s need and preference.

Generous landscaped main open spaces, landscaped children’s playground with play equipment and multi-purpose hall for different gatherings will also provide its future residents a place for  leisure and recreations.
