There is a decades’ worth of research that proves how green spaces and parks have become a go-to wellness solution for people who live in urban communities.
Knowing how critical green and sustainable living is in harnessing the potential of areas outside Metro Manila, Megaworld-the country’s leading developer of integrated urban townships - is set to bring this idea to fruition with the upcoming rise of its 140-hectare Maple Grove township in General Trias, Cavite.
The township is strategically set at the entry point of the industrial and residential center of the Cavite-Batangas corridor, further highlighting the potential of the area as a premier growth center.
Set to rise within the heart of the township is the 35-hectare Maple Grove Commercial District inspired by the Makati CBD - the country’s premiere financial district - making the area an ideal hub for dreamers and go-getters alike. Once completed, the district will be a mere 30 to 45 minutes away from Makati and Fort Bonifacio via the Coastal Road and Cavitex. It will also be surrounded by seven (7) green and open parks, including an expansive ‘Central Park’ that will serve as the district’s ‘green jewel.’
To date, the Maple Grove Commercial District is already almost sold out. Soon, Maple Grove will also have its own lifestyle mall, commercial centers, and office towers.
Township lifestyle in Cavite’s ‘green’CBD
Now, township living finally comes to General Trias, Cavite with Megaworld’s recent introduction of the first residential development rising within Maple Grove: the 10-storey The Verdin at Maple Grove.
Located along the township’s main six-lane avenue, this residential condominium development will integrate environmental sustainability features, complementing the township’s vision as Cavite’s ‘green’ CBD. The tower will be highlighted by its own ‘Sustainability Wall’ in the main lobby, solar-powered outlets in various parts of the outdoor amenity deck, use of recycled and indigenous materials for the pool deck and children’s playground equipment, and the use of energy-generating equipment and machines in the outdoor fitness area.
The Verdin at Maple Grove will offer seven levels of residential units ranging from studio (up to 32 square meters), one-bedroom (up to 51 square meters), and two-bedroom (up to 79 square meters). Select units will have their own lanai, overlooking the scenic green parks and cityscape of the township. The low density, mid-rise tower will only have 140 exclusive units.
It will also have two levels of podium parking and a retail row at the ground level, providing convenient access to its residents.
“Maple Grove will become a sanctuary of urban countryside and sustainable lifestyle. A huge part of the masterplan will be Makati-inspired where green parks and interconnected streets are surrounded by malls, office buildings and residential towers. The Verdin at Maple Grove will be at the center of it all,” says Rachelle Peñaflorida, vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld.
Set to be completed in 2023, The Verdin at Maple Grove, will have an exclusive third-level amenity deck featuring a lap pool with pool deck, children’s pool, leisure and relaxation park, reading nooks, function room, fitness center, outdoor fitness area, daycare center and a playground.
“There will be fresh air to breathe and enough space to relax and meditate. There will be pocket gardens and areas to commune with nature. And when residents step out of The Verdin, the cafes, restaurants, and retail shops will just be a few steps away,” explains Peñaflorida.
