Prestigious accolades cement ALP’s position as the developer of choice for projects that are a cut above the rest.
Anvaya Cove gains the title of the Philippines’ most awarded residential resort development. This year saw the Ayala Land Premier project already triumphing in the 2016 Global Awards for Excellence offered by the Urban Land Institute, which recognizes best practices and outstanding development projects. On the heels of that accolade, Anvaya Cove recently gained another in the last
FIABCI-Philippines Awards under the Environmental Category, rewarding projects that aim to conserve existing natural environment. FIABCI is the French acronym for "Federation Internationale des Administrateurs de Bien-Conselis Immobiliers", which means "The International Real Estate Federation". The prestigious organization has represented the world's real estate professions through its Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. Currently operating in more than 60 countries, FIABCI represents every discipline in the industry and links thousands of real estate professionals worldwide.
Their awards, dubbed the FIABCI Prix d'Excellence, recognizes projects that best embody excellence in the real estate disciplines involved in their creation. Judged by an international panel comprising top real estate professionals and experts, the FIABCI Prix d'Excellence rewards overall merit and not just aesthetics, functionality or size. Thus, the Prix d'Excellence is said to be bestowed on projects that are truly a cut above the rest.
BUILDING ON SUSTAINABLE PRINCIPLES
Anvaya Cove’s win was well-deserved, as Ayala Land Premier focused on developing the project as a sustainably masterplanned residential seaside leisure community. Environmental sustainability was deeply ingrained in its planning and development, with a conscious effort to minimize earthworks and to enhance the ecosystem. Endemic flora and fauna thrive in and around Anvaya Cove, even in its world-class golf course, with the added benefit of lessening water and maintenance requirements.
Ayala Land works tirelessly to retain Anvaya Cove’s lush terrain, protecting its status as a nature sanctuary, where migratory birds, sea turtles and other endemic wildlife can thrive. It took meticulous planning and painstaking efforts to preserve the natural lay of the land and inherent beauty of the site. This is in line with Ayala Land’s commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.
Anvaya Cove boasts a stunning natural setting featuring 3.5 kilometers of beautiful coastline with magnificent views. The 470-hectare premier development is located in Morong, Bataan, about two and a half hours from Manila, an hour from Clark and only 20 minutes from Subic.
The project features the highest standards of construction, design, services and amenities -- as expected of any Ayala Land Premier development. From the beginning, the design and planning of Anvaya Cove followed sustainable principles, emphasizing the protection and enhancement of the site’s natural attributes and habitats. This meant designing roadways that avoid mature trees and follow the natural contour of the land and choosing lighting fixtures that would not disorient pawikans (Olive Ridley Sea Turtles) as they come home to nest. Amenities like the Nature Camp also serve a venue for interacting with nature as well as promoting conservation.
A CLASS OF ITS OWN
In contrast to other developments that maximize floor area at nature’s expense, Anvaya Cove’s land use and zoning have the environment in mind. Structures were designed to be low-lying and used natural materials and color palettes that blend in with the lush natural setting. Generous setbacks and open spaces were provided between neighborhoods, with building footprints limited to only 35 percent of the total lot area. Structures utilize locally available materials, passive solar energy features and natural ventilation, designed to respond to climatic conditions such as heat, humidity and heavy rains.
Environment protection is also evident in the construction and environmental management plan. A comprehensive study on the development impact to the environment was done to minimize the effect to the site. Its one-hectare lagoon acts both as a storm water catchment and recreated wetland for wildlife. Every year, the project team conducts a tree-replacement program to replenish the greenery that had been displaced by development. Also in place as well, is an environmental monitoring system that measures water quality, coral reef cover, sea turtle nesting activity, and an inventory of the endemic bird species found in the development.
The team also recognizes that environmental protection needs to involve the local community and all stakeholders to succeed. The Local Government Unit, Pawikan Conservation Center and Municipal Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council have been given financial and technical support to align sustainability and community development programs. The community has also spearheded periodic beach cleanups.
Ayala Land Premier has proven the worth of its commitment to incorporate ecologically sound design principles in Anvaya Cove. The result is an aesthetically pleasing, environmentally sensitive, and multi-award-winning development that’s officially in a class of its own.
