Do you want to invest in a multi-awarded condominium development in Cagayan de Oro at the most reasonable deals? This month, Italpinas’ flagship development, Primavera Residences, offers a high-end kitchen modular system from October 1-31, 2015!
In a regular package, buyers get unfurnished units with inclusions of tile floorings, painted walls and ceilings, fitted kitchen sinks, bathroom fixtures, electrical wirings and outlets; however, this month of October, buyers are offered a FREE Kitchen Modular System!
“At Primavera, we always make sure to please our clients not only with world-class units and facilities but also with our promo offerings; that aside from the already affordable rates, we strive to make it even more reasonable. Indeed, today is the best chance to invest in Mindanao’s first and only multi-awarded eco-friendly building,” Gladys Magadan-Echano, Sales Director, expressed.
Primavera Residences is known for its energy-saving features that include cantilevers to protect the units from direct sunlight, and an indoor courtyard that maximizes the natural ventilation in the area. Just recently, solar panels that provide additional energy for the building’s common areas are already installed on the building’s rooftop. The building is also designed to withstand earthquakes and extreme weather and boasts of 24-7 security.
“We are not just giving them discounts but we give them the real thing. We want to add more value to our investors’ purchase; that it will not just be profitable, but they will also help the environment by purchasing from a development that is eco-friendly,” Echano stated.
Primavera Residences, the first development of Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC), is a 10-storey, two-tower building located at Pueblo de Oro Township offering residential, commercial and office spaces for lease and purchase. All units in the first tower are ready for occupancy while the second tower is slated to be completed this year. Buyers may choose from studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
Hurry! We only have few units left!
Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC), the company behind Cagayan de Oro real estate project Primavera is set for an initial public offering (IPO) in the coming weeks.
The IPO is ground-breaking in many ways. To begin with, IDC has staked its future on a road not often taken, embarking on its flagship venture Primavera in Cagayan de Oro and following it up by announcing an even more ambitious multi-function development around it, Primavera City. The company is also favoring a focus on sustainable design – again, a not too common tack among local real estate developers. In what must be a first in the industry, IDC is unmistakably mestizo, rooted in a partnership between Italian architect and designer Romolo Valentino Nati, and Filipino-born, Sydney-educated lawyer Jojo Leviste.
With the foundations of its future fixed firmly on the City of Golden Friendship, the IDC IPO will likely be viewed as a barometer of investor confidence in Mindanao, in general; and in Cagayan de Oro, in particular.
Of course, it will also be seen as a vote on IDC’s seemingly counter-intuitive and potentially disruptive business model: target the up-and-coming cities, instead of the already established ones; and offer them elegant yet accessible eco-friendly buildings in safe locations.
To Nati and Leviste though, just getting to the IPO stage is already a victory in itself.
Nati reveals that before Primavera even broke ground, many were discouraging them from doing their debut development in Cagayan de Oro, questioning the location, the market and its readiness.
But Leviste happily points out that the doubters have since been proven wrong. Units at the first condo tower in Primavera were snapped up predominantly by local residents and by overseas Kagay-anons, putting to rest the notion that the market was not ready for condo living and high-rises.
The company’s emphasis on design has also reaped rewards, including Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines at last year’s International Property Awards in Kuala Lumpur, Highly Commended Condo Development from the Southeast Asia Property Awards in Singapore, and a Special Energy Award at the Design Against the Elements Competition in Quezon City.
Going public will mean many things to the different stakeholders in the future of IDC. For the company, the fresh funding will fuel the development of Primavera City, which it forecasts will fast-track the arrival of locators to the Uptown business district. For Cagayan de Oro, the spotlight on IDC will showcase how the city is both investor-friendly and investment-worthy. For the whole of Mindanao, the listing can only bolster confidence in much-anticipated growth led by its Northern gateway.
The investor vote on the trail blazed by IDC is crucial. A yes will ensure not only the development of what will likely be a new landmark for Cagayan de Oro, but the construction of what could be a catalyst to bring in long-awaited locators. A yes will also be a validation of IDC’s deeply-held belief that the future of the Philippines – perhaps even of the rest of ASEAN – lies in designing emerging cities, to make a difference.
Oh hello there! It is not yet too late to assess your eating and exercise habits as Primavera Residences gives you tips on how to maximize your workout habits. They say, you are what you eat. Well, it is important for you to know what to eat because wanting to be fit can be very exhausting but will be worth it at the end of the day.
You may want to consider these eating and exercise tips:
If you plan to exercise in the morning, it is best to wake up early enough to eat your breakfast at least an hour before your workout. Most of the energy you got from dinner the previous night is used up in the morning, and your blood sugar might be low. If you don’t eat, you might feel lazy or lightheaded when you exercise.
You may eat a light breakfast or a glass of energy drink. Emphasize carbohydrates for maximum energy. Good breakfast options include:
If you normally take coffee in the mornings, remember, a cup before you exercise is fine.
Be wary by not trying to overwhelm yourself with the food served at breakfast, lunch, or dinner before taking your exercise. Please see below the general guidelines:
Eating too much before you exercise can leave you feeling lazy. Also, eating too little might not give you energy to keep you feeling strong throughout your workout. Best thing to do is to eat right.
There is no other way to determine what’s enough or not for your snacks. The key is how you feel and what works best for you. Most people eat small snacks right before and after exercise. Snacks eaten before your workout won’t give added energy, but they can help keep up your blood sugar and prevent distracting hunger spasms. These include:
P.S. A healthy snack is especially important if you plan a workout several hours after a meal.
To help your muscles recover and to replace their glycogen stores, eat a meal that contains both protein and carbohydrates within two hours of your exercise session if possible. Good post-workout food choices include:
5. Drink Up
Don’t forget to drink fluids. You need adequate fluids before, during and after exercise to help prevent dehydration.
To stay well-hydrated for exercise, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends that you:
Water is generally the best way to replace lost fluids. But if you’re exercising for more than 60 minutes, use a sports drink. Sports drinks can help maintain your body’s electrolyte balance and give you a bit more energy because they contain carbohydrates.
Be fit and enjoy living healthy
Always bear in mind that length and intensity of your activity will dictate how often and what you should be eating and drinking.
When it comes to eating and exercise, everyone is different. Pay serious attention to how you feel during the workout and your overall performance. Be fit and enjoy living healthy to the habits that works best for you. Monitor how your body reacts to meals, snacks, drinks so that you can adjust your diet for maximum performance.
Your health and well-being plays a very significant role in helping you achieve your goals, and we at Primavera Residences understand how important it is to constantly be on optimum health.

Last Saturday, May 9, the Philippine Air Force-Tactical Operations Group 10, together with several groups in the city, led the mangrove planting activity in Zone 8, Bulua, CdO. Italpinas and other green advocates come together as they planted 5000 mangrove seedlings around the shoreline. PAF-TOG 10 partnered with several groups namely SPOW EOD-K9, 8th ARCEN, 71st AFRG, CRSAFP, 4ID, PA, 10th FAB, ACDI-CDO, FABSLAI, AFPMBAI, JCI Kagayhaan, DepEd, REACT, KAMAU 4H-Opol, CLENRO, and Bulua Barangay Council.
With the theme, “Stand Up Save the Reefs”, the Ocean Month Celebration paves the way to highlight the importance of mangroves in the city.
“This is part of rehabilitating our very own Iponan River. Through planting mangroves around its vicinity, we can secure food for our farmers and fisher folks. Mangroves are our aquatic life’s nursery. We are not just saving the ocean, we are saving lives,” Edwin Dael, CLENRO-OIC, said.
On October 11, 2014 and February 7, 2015, Italpinas joined CLENRO and PAF-TOG 10 in the same activity at the coastal area in Bonbon, CdO. It was supported by schools, green advocates and some residents in the said barangay.
“To be part of a sustainable development and joining the city’s thrust to promote environmental advocacies is not just rewarding but also a testimony that Cagayan de Oro’s progress still goes hand in hand with nature. The mangrove planting activity was fun and fulfilling at the same time. Waking up early for a satisfying reason is truly worth it,” Gisselle Mantilla, ITPI Admin Officer, said.
Developed by Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-development Corporation (ITPI), Primavera Residences has been actively promoting green advocacies in the city and has won numerous local and international awards for its eco-friendly architecture. Featuring the best principles of passive cooling technology: shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance, the project has been cited as one of Asia’s top 10 clean energy projects because of its capacity to help residents save as much as 32% on overall energy consumption.
Daniel Alcazar and Aldwin Ranario, Primavera’s sales associates said that their experience was way beyond all worldly things could give, it is more to saving what’s left and planting more to save the environment.
“During the storm surge, these mangroves helped lessen the damage. Together, we can collectively get resources and could help rebuild the city. Let’s all stand up and save our reefs,” Dael concluded.

When it comes to beaches, springs, adventure parks, and a whole lot of escapades, Mindanao, the second largest chunk in the Philippine Archipelago, is the haven you’ve been looking for. One of its provinces is endowed with scenic places and natural wonders and Misamis Oriental is probably the best eco-adventure destination in the Philippines.
The province of Misamis Oriental is undeniably one of the right places to be for those who are after some adventure with nature. It is rich in natural resources, both underwater and on land, and it’s also the gateway to the entirety of Mindanao.
The breathtaking sunsets at the Agutayan Island in Jasaan, the underwater spring at Duka Bay Resort in Medina, the amazing land and underwater activities in The Mantangale Alibuag Dive Resort in Balingoan, are just some of the great jump-off points to more than a dozen adventure and diving sites. Misamis Oriental is home to terrific swim and snorkel spots. Good coral growth and strong currents make the waters of Misamis Oriental the ideal habitat for an array of plant and animal marine life.
If you’re also into trekking and some land adventure, there are centuries-old trees at the Lasang Secret Adventure Eco-Tourism Park and breathe some fresh air while learning about the tribal cultures of Mindanao at the Gardens of Malasag Eco-Tourism Village.
Misamis Oriental is also a special place for Catholic pilgrims. The Divine Mercy Shrine, located in El Salvador City, has a 50-ft statue of Jesus as the Divine Mercy. Also, Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in Cagayan de Oro City lets you cross 9 rivers to get there.
Dubbed as the “adventure capital” in the Philippines, Cagayan de Oro City also offers the thrill of escapades and adventures.

Let’s face the fact that living in a single-detached home can be very expensive, especially when you decide to live on your own and want to live in major cities. Securing a house in good locations can be quite tedious because of cost and availability reasons, resulting to more people opting for a condo unit than traditional houses.
Here are the top reasons why:
Condo living has both advantages and disadvantages, but for young professionals, newly-weds, or even friends living under one roof, then a condo unit truly offers more advantages.
Primavera Residences, a mixed-use development which is located in Uptown Cagayan de Oro, is the first-ever eco-friendly condominium project in Northern Mindanao. Specifically located at Pueblo de Oro Business and I.T. Park, Primavera Residences is ensured with 24/7 security. Surrounded with nearby leisure and entertainment areas, the building is just a walking distance to SM City CdO.
Primavera Residences is offering residential, commercial and office spaces for lease and purchase. All units in the first tower are ready for occupancy while the second tower is slated to be turned over in a few months’ time. Buyers may choose from studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
