What makes Primavera Residences the perfect home for newlywed professionals?

1. Sometimes it’s hard to find condominiums that are not far from the city, but still have a homey and suburban atmosphere to it. This is what makes Primavera the best place to spend each day with your partner. Primavera Residences provide couples with a cozy and comfortable space to enjoy each other’s company in an incredibly convenient location so that newlyweds wake up and greet the new working day with a pleasant smile, not having to worry about being too far from the work place, and not being near enough to hear the loud cars drive by.

2. The green and lush garden of Primavera located at the 3rd floor, and the pool just a few steps away are tranquil venues for men and women to find their inner peace– nothing’s better than doing yoga poolside or hitting the gym while waiting for the husband to get home from work!

3. Weekends don’t have to be spent away from home when Primavera Residences provide couples with a relaxing and blissful living area, complete with a huge window to keep the bright light in, a television set for entertainment, and a comfortable couch you wouldn’t mind sleeping in when you’re watching a late-night movie with the wife.

4. The size of each unit is perfect for busy newlyweds; it provides a seamless flow in the home that bring you from one room to another with ease. Storage is not a problem since Primavera has provided numerous cabinets and drawers for all cooking needs, making it easier to prepare meals, and clean up! Music to any busy worker’s ears.

5. The calm, serene and romantic atmosphere of Primavera residences keep couples falling more and more in love, and hurrying to get back from work to spend a little more time together in this wonderful condominium with balconies, big windows and a front row seat to an amazing sunset view.

Against other condominiums in the city, Primavera stands out because it is only walking distance of SM City, but it is not surrounded by bustling traffic or the noise of the city. Primavera Residences provide complete customer satisfaction by providing anything and everything that anyone may need, may it be a chance to take a quiet walk around the block, or a little shopping with the husband/wife. Couples and professionals, among others in the market should look no further than Primavera Residences to answer all home and comfort needs.


Isn’t it refreshing waking up to a cozy home and enjoying breakfast with the one you love?



Getting ready for work is never a hassle when you can get dressed and appreciate the lovely view at the same time.


And what is the wife to do while the husband works to bring home the bacon? Enjoy Primavera’s amenities of course!




What could be better than to come home to a loving wife, and the best view of the sunset?


Congratulations to the winners! Selected photos from the 24 different groups may also be viewed at the Primavera Residences booth in SM City CDO from September 15 to 22, 2014.

Primavera Residences Tower B Construction Proceeds on Schedule


The Christmas holidays and the heavy rains brought by back-to-back low pressure areas have not slowed the construction of the second tower (Tower B) of Primavera Residences, the first eco-friendly, mixed-use condominium development in southern Philippines.

The 10-storey, twin-tower, mixed-use development (commercial, offices, residences) is the first project designed and developed by ITPI Corp. (Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corporation), a Italian-Filipino company that designs and develops sustainable property developments all over the Philippines.

Tower B, now under construction, is set to be completed by the third quarter of this year. To be launched this February, it is almost fully sold-out.

Construction of the first tower (Tower A) began in 2010 and was completed in September 12, 2012.

On Monday the state weather bureau (PAGASA) said that an LPA spotted earlier over Cagayan de Oro city had moved some 45kms East of Dipolog City, Zamboanga Peninsula, bringing persistent moderate to occasionally heavy rain showers and thunderstorms to the city and the rest of Northern Mindanao, as well as neighboring Caraga and Visayas. But this did not slow down the construction of the second tower.

Best-in-class eco-friendly features

Located in the upscale Pueblo de Oro Business and IT Park, Primavera Residences features the best principles of passive cooling technology — shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance.

These features, combined with renewable energy that will be produced from solar panels found on the roof and walls of the towers, will help reduce the overall energy consumption of the buildings —  bringing long-term savings to its residents and making Primavera Residences even more desirable as an investment.

The buildings are also designed to be ‘disaster-proof’, able to withstand strong typhoons and earthquakes.

Last year, to align the construction of Tower B with its eco-friendly design, ITPI entrusted the building work to the First Orient Development and Construction Corporation (FODC), a reputable engineering and construction company that is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)-certified.

LEED Certification is given by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) to companies who satisfy stringent environmental standards throughout their entire building lifecycles. The LEED program also provides third-party verification of green buildings and recognizes best-in-class building strategies. #

ITPI Joins BPI Family Bank’s Cagyan de Oro ‘Housing Madness’


Special acquisition deals for ‘Madness’ clients make Primavera Residences units more affordable for Kagay-anons

For many overseas Filipino workers, owning a home is the ultimate dream — next only to putting their children through college.

Now for OFWs from Cagayan de Oro City, owning a home — a truly “green” one found in a prime location — is affordable.

ITPI Corp. (Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corporation), is a young and dynamic green property developer that is leading the country’s push into developing eco-friendly but affordable mixed-use condominium developments for the global Filipino. What’s more, it’s developing in places that are closer to the home towns of OFWs: the country’s secondary cities.

In Cagayan de Oro, ITPI has developed Primavera Residences, the first mixed-use condominium complex in southern Philippines that incorporates state-of-the-art sustainable building technologies.

The 10-storey, twin-tower, mixed-use condominium complex is built in the safe and accessible Pueblo de Oro IT & Business Park, where 24-hour security, electric service and transportation are guaranteed.

It is also found in high ground (110 meters above sea level), which ensures that it is flood-free even during heavy rains and storms.

The condominium is located close to universities, places of worship, and commercial establishments like SM City.

The first eco-friendly development in Mindanao, the two towers of Primavera Residences were designed to reduce overall energy consumption by using a combination of ‘passive’ cooling strategies integrated into a sustainable architectural design and ‘active’ renewable energy produced from photovoltaic panels.

“OFWs have long been called ‘Filipino heroes,’ because their remittances have kept the Philippine economy afloat for decades and have granted it the phenomenal growth of recent years,” notes Architect Romolo V. Nati, ITPI’s Executive Chairman and CEO.

“We’d like to go beyond the rhetoric, to honor the OFW dream — and help make it come true,” Architect Nati said.

Making Primavera Residences affordable

To make Primavera Residences more affordable, ITPI partnered with the BPI Family Savings Bank Housing Loan during the 1st run of the Housing Madness, held in Cagayan de Oro’s Centrio Mall from December 27 to 29, 2013.

During the housing fair, BPI and ITPI partnered to offer the best housing loan deals for Primavera Residences and at guaranteed low rates.

Housing loan clients who filed their applications during the ‘Madness’ event and whose applications were booked on or before February 28, 2014 were  able to enjoy:

  • Special rates, exclusively offered at this event, which translated to low monthly amortizations
  • Waived appraisal and processing fees
  • On-the-spot loan approval based on income documents presented

Borrowers whose loan applications had been approved and availed of were given a chance to get a free BPII Express Credit Gold MasterCard.

These benefits were also made available to clients who availed of properties from the other property developers who joined the Housing Madness.

“Our Housing Madness provides our clients with ease and convenience as we gathered under one roof the best developers who have projects in here in CDO,” BPI Family Savings Bank President, Mr. Jose Teodoro Limcaoco told SunStar Cagayan de Oro.

“As a bank that understands the primary needs of every Filipino, we create the best value for them through our special rates and payment schemes. With faster turnaround, it will be very convenient for clients to apply for a loan,” he added.

SunStar Cagayan de Oro also wrote about this event.

On Business World: Cagayan de Oro Development gets ‘green’ loan

Italpinas EuroAsian Design and Eco-Development Corp. has received a P180 million “green” development loan to partially finance the construction of its Primavera Residences Tower 2.

The loan agreement was signed in January by Romolo V. Nati, chairman and Jose D. Leviste III, president, on behalf of Italpinas and by Alfonso L. Salcedo, Jr., executive vice-president, and Mario B. Palau, senior vice-president for the Banks of the Philippine Islands (BPI).


“BPI advances its sustainable energy finance by continuing to support the energy[-efficiency] investments of its clients,” the bank said in a recent statement.

“In collaboration with International Finance Corp., the four year old innovative financing approach fund various efficient and renewable technologies all over the country,” it added, referring to the World Bank Group’s private sector investment arm.

BPI is the country’s third biggest universal bank in terms of assets, with over 809 branches and 2,542 automated teller machines nationwide, according to the statement.


Italpinas’ business plan for Primavera Residences, on the other hand, was cited as one of the promising “clean” energy investment opportunities in the Philippines during the Philippine Clean Energy Investor Forum held at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel in Metro Manila in 2010.

This year, the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) – a public-private partnership initiated by the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI), has cited Primavera Residence’s eco friendly design.

CTI-PFAN cited Italpinas’ new project as the only finalist from the Philippines for this year’s selection of 38 eco-friendly projects across Asia.

Primavera Residences is the first “green” building in Cagayan de Oro City that integrates into its design eco-friendly features such as rooftop solar panels to generate part of the two buildings’ electricity supply and reducing power use by maximizing natural light and wind ventilation.

Located at the Pueblo de Oro Business Park in uptown Cagayan de Oro City within the master-planned 360-hectare Pueblo de Oro Township, Primavera Residences is a P450-million 10-storey twin-tower condominium that was designed by Mr. Nati, an Italian architect, and developed by Italpinas, a corporate member of the Philippine Green Building Council.

The Primavera Residences Tower 2 will provide 167 residential units.

Construction, currently underway, is scheduled for completion by June.
