“Camiguin Island is just few hours away from Cagayan de Oro and it’s a perfect location for Pirmavera to create a healthy business relationship between CdO and Camiguin. We want to create partnerships with the active business sectors in the island since Primavera Residences is a good earning investment,” Ryan Fajardo, Internal Sales Head of Primavera Residences, said.
Last 19-22 October, Primavera Residences Sales and Marketing team experienced Camiguin’s remarkable sunsets, astonishing bays, and its spectacular mountains, just in time for the province’s 36th Lanzones Festival.
“Camiguin is known for its rich natural resources. Nature preservation has always been its top priority in promoting their island. The province of Camiguin and Primavera Residences have the same advocacy that we actively promote as we build nature-inspired developments,” Cesar Stefan Rago, Public Relations and Marketing Officer of Primavera Residences, declared.
Camiguin is a tourist’s haven. Unspoilt beaches, powdery white sand, hot springs, majestic falls – name it. For the adventurous, there are also volcanoes to climb and jungles to trek, and for the foodies, mouth-watering authentic Italian cuisine and fresh bounties from the sea are waiting to satisfy the next visitor.
Camiguin is especially wonderful to visit at this time of the year due to its annual Lanzones Festival. With a series of attractions lined up for the whole festival season, visitors are set to be amazed and fall deeper in love with the island.
Bringing investment opportunities to the island
Primavera Residences, a multi-awarded mixed-use development in Cagayan de Oro, visited the island of Camiguin last October 19 – 22 with the event highlight held at Villa Paraiso Resort at Mamabajao, Camiguin to conduct series of events aimed at introducing the condominium property to Camiguinons.
The event highlighted points to prospective investors from Camiguin as Primavera is considered a very safe investment, offers good returns in a growing alternative market, located in CdO which is as an emerging economy in the Philippines, and a rising travel and tourism destination in Northern Mindanao.
The investment yields approximately 8% ROI per annum, thereby contributing to a very attractive opportunity for property investors.
Planning to visit Northern Mindanao soon? Primavera Residences offers condo units available for short-term and long-term rent or for purchase. You can also talk to us and we’ll love to share with you the amazing spots you can visit in the region – the lovely Camiguin Island among those in the list

Italpinas Development Corporation’s (IDC) premier green property in Northern Mindanao, Primavera Residences, has recently partnered with the Philippine Air Force Tactical Operations Group 10 (PAF-TOG 10) in their aim to conserve the environment through a tree planting activity in Sitio Calacapan, Brgy. Indahag last 26 September 2015.
“As leaders to sustainable developments, it is our promise to the people that we continue to build and rebuild communities through being frontrunners and supporters to the city’s environment advocacies. Through these activities, we can bring people together in attaining our goals in ensuring environmental sustainability,” Cesar Stefan Rago, IDC’s Public Relations and Marketing Officer, declared.
Supported by different schools, colleges, universities, government and private offices, PAF-TOG 10 has successfully planted 1000 assorted seedlings as reinforcement to the National Greening Program of the government to increase the awareness of the civilian populace in sustaining the environment through activities like this.
“It is our delight to continue conducting tree planting activities to showcase/highlight PAF’s continuous support to the different programs of other agencies to help preserve the environment which, in a way, supports the AFP Internal Peace and Security Plan’s (IPSP) ‘Bayanihan’,” Lt. Col. Leo A Fontanilla, PAF (GSC) Group Commander, said.
Italpinas Development Corporation has been in the forefront of sustainable developments and passive green architecture. IDC has won numerous local and international awards for its high-performance design—featuring the best principles of passive cooling technology: shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance. Its flagship development, Primavera Residences in Cagayan de Oro, 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.
Built in 2012, the multi-awarded building is located in a master-planned community in uptown Cagayan de Oro. It has been effectively on the lead in promoting green advocacies in the city.
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.
Last August 15, 2015, a crowd of 500 gathered for the International Leadership Conference organized by Capitol University for their Executive Management Class of the Graduate School SY 2015-2016.
With the honorary presence of Filipino, American, Turkish, German and Italian lecturers and personalities, among which the Governor Vicente “Bambi” Emano who, during his speech, underlined his commitment to contintue to help Misamis Oriental grow in terms of Tourism and in terms of overall support to businesses with needed infrastructure.
Mr. Lorens Ziller, IDC Director for Corporate Affairs, spoke on behalf of Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC), the developer of Primavera Residences in Uptown CdO and announced that the second building of Primavera Residences is near to completion underlining the strong commitment of the company to deliver results for its many investors.
Ziller, also Vice President of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines held a speech about the “Challenges and Opportunities in International Trade and Business” in which he underlined the new opportunities for business and partnerships that the Philippines has with ASEAN with a brief on what we should learn from the European Union Integration process on how it happened and who benefited the most in the aftermath.
He also spoke about the new GSP+ “tariff-zero” admission of the Philippines with the EU for a large variety of goods manufactured and produced in the country and how this benefits and cascades into different industries from logistics and banking to real estate.
In the end he spoke about the importance of international networking and the participation in associations or entities like the ICCPI (the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines) which promotes partnerships and cooperation between Filipino and Italian companies for import/export opportunities and cross-country investment.
The Italian Chamber, after the very successful “Aperitivo Italiano” networking events, is seeking new tie-ups with local chambers and plans to hold a series of similar events also in Mindanao and Visayas. On behalf of IDC he said that the exciting designer building should possibly be handed over within the next 60 days.
This proves the value behind this young development corporation who, apart from keeping up to the promise of his investors is also apparently preparing for public listing within the next few months increasing the returns for its own investors even further.
Explaining the success of this Filipino-Italian company citing Napoleon Hill he finished with: “The only limits are those created by our mind” meaning that, where there is a will to succeed even in difficult circumstances there is a way if we don’t allow our imagination to see our success, which gained him a large applause by the present crowd.
The conference underlined the commitment from several private and institutional parties that a successful and growing Misamis Oriental with and International mindset will benefit all classes of society and bring new jobs and opportunities into an already thriving business environment. Where education, business and institutions are cooperating harmoniously there is definitely a strategic advantage for all concerned parties and ultimately for the people and our next generations.

Italpinas CEO and executive chairman Arch. Romolo V. Nati was chosen to speak at the 19th Fédération Internationale des Administrateurs de Biens Conseils Immobiliers (FIABCI) Asia Pacific Regional Secretariat Summit held recently at the Marriott Hotel Manila last April 17, 2015.
With the theme “Cities of the Future: Asia Pacific”, FIABCI-Philippines brought together international and prominent speakers in a program filled with timely information pertaining to global real estate.
Speaking before members of the FIABCI community across Asia, Nati talked about the importance of sustainable design in the midst of climate change and the problems plaguing many homeowners in the Philippines. In the real estate industry today, energy efficiency efforts are now becoming an essential component in property developments.
“With both a housing deficit and a power shortage problem prevalent in the country, it just makes sense that the future of design is in sustainability. We need buildings that not only look good, but also function well to help alleviate those two problems. This is why green design is important,” stated Nati.
Nati also explained one of the biggest misconceptions people have about eco-friendly structures being expensive. “A lot of people don’t realize that green, sustainable design can be done without the staggering costs. We at ITPI practice what is called passive green design, meaning rather than use expensive equipment to make a structure green, we incorporate design elements to help, say, lower the cost of energy,” he explained. “This way we can make the units affordable for the middle class,” he added.
Primavera Residences, ITPI’s flagship development, is a primary example for sustainable development. The 10-storey mid-rise twin tower is a winner of the 2014 Asia Pacific Property Award for Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines. Located in Pueblo de Oro Township in CdO, Primavera Residences is modeled after an anthill with a hollow column in the middle of each tower allowing air to enter and circulate, creating a chimney effect that helps cool down the building, lowering air conditioning and electricity costs.
“Power is one of the key issues in Mindanao, so it just made sense, especially in that area, to have energy-saving features. This can be seen as a benchmark for energy-efficiency. If we can do it in Cagayan de Oro, we can do it for the rest of the country,” Arch. Nati emphasized.
Primavera Residences’ Tower 1 has been completed while its Tower 2 is 90% complete.
