A friend recently asked me where I’d want to retire.
The question caught me off guard because I’ve never really thought about it.
But also because, I’ve always imagined myself traveling around the world when that time comes – so having a single place to call as my retirement home is not a big part of the plan.
Nevertheless, I started thinking of possible places where I’d want to build a home. Among those I considered were Bacolod, Cebu, Davao and General Santos – all progressive cities in Visayas and Mindanao.
However, I believe I could never really settle far from Metro Manila, the place where I’ve spent most of my life.
So with that in mind, I started considering nearby cities and concluded that if ever I’d have to choose somewhere near the metropolis, then I’d probably go for Lipa City.
Lipa City is among the most progressive cities in Batangas and is just a short drive away from Metro Manila, thanks to the SLEX and Star Tollways. Taking public transport is also easy as there are many buses en route here everyday, all day, from Metro Manila.
Moreover, weather in Lipa is generally cool because it’s more than a thousand feet above sea level and known to be the third highest place in the Philippines.
No wonder celebrities such as Aga Muhlach and Charlene Gonzales, Boy Abunda and Vilma Santos chose Lipa City as their second home away from the city.
Lipa City, in my opinion, holds a lot of promise and potential for Southern Luzon, and maybe that’s why some real estate developers have chosen to invest there.
Among them is Convergence Realty and Development Corporation, who is now working on Bel-Air Residences, a residential project that will be built right at the center of business and social activity in Lipa City.
Bel-Air Residences is located beside Fiesta Mall and across Kolehiyo ng Lungsod ng Lipa. It is within walking distance to SM and located very near several schools, hospitals, malls and business centers.
I’ve seen their development plans and it really looks promising. The “Modern Zen” architecture design of the house units were conceptualized by renowned architect, Arch. Ed Ledesma.
Below are some of the unit designs.
Residents here will get to enjoy amenities inside the project such as basketball courts, a jogging path, a playground for kids, barbeque area, multiple parks, a pool, a lanai, a gazebo and a Club House.
If you agree with me that Lipa City is a great choice to have your dream home, then perhaps you can consider Bel-Air Residences.
