FOR all the vigor a metropolitan life offers, what more could we ask for? I say an accessible sanctuary that could give some breathing space.
Myara Grove is an enclave that honors harmony with the natural environment, nourishing families with healthy spaces. It is the very first residential development of DBC Homes which, at its core, is conceptualized to integrate the intergenerational values of the Tan family.
This profound transformation in the real estate scene recently had its grand launching at the Iloilo Convention Center.
“Health and wellness as an overarching principle provides certainty to our actions and connection to the community we are building. It clarifies what we envision—the first wellness community in the heart of Iloilo City,” said Mr. Allen Son Tan, Vice President for Operations of DBC Homes.
The grand launching was graced by Mr. Alfonso Tan, president of Diversion AGT & Sons, Inc.; former Iloilo Gov. Arthur D. Defensor Sr.; Uswag Ilonggo party-list’s Rep. James “Jojo” Ang; and Iloilo City Councilor Miguel Treñas.
“Our mission does not end when the houses are built to the satisfaction of our customers; it is the point where we begin the core of our mission—to develop environmentally friendly communities and to inculcate the benefits of mother nature for the betterment of their lives. There lies the big difference.” Mr. Allen Son Tan added.
In Myara Grove, there are three home models to choose from—2-bedroom Aster Townhouses, 4-bedroom Adelfa Single Attached Homes and 2-story commercial Azalea Shophouses, with the first floor transformable into a business enterprise from the comfort of their own home on the second floor.
All home models feature big windows for natural lighting, passive cooling and cross ventilation for good airflow and energy conservation.
For a seamless harmony with nature, Myara Grove features courtyard groves that grow Iloilo-native flora at the heart around which homes are laid out. Every homeowner gets a front view of a lush landscape.
Myara Grove has spaces for an array of fitness, recreation and social activities, such as a Garden Walk for your daily stroll, a playground to spend quality time with family and furbabies, a clubhouse for gatherings and events and shophouses for your needs that are within reach.
Conveniently tucked in Iloilo City’s Mandurriao district, the residential space is a 5- to 15-minute drive or a 5- to 45-minute walk away from schools, hospitals, malls and places of worship.
“Even before the pandemic, there were individuals who recognized the importance of prioritizing health… This is how Myara Grove came to be—an embodiment of noble intent,” said Mr. Arthuro Secuya, Chief Architect of DBC’s design partner OnPoint Design Co.
With the well-being of Ilonggos in mind, Secuya explained how Myara Grove’s name came to be.
“How do we infuse Ilonggo culture into the project? The name (Myara) is a wordplay, combining the Ilonggo possessive phrase for ‘I have’ or ‘There is’, with the English word, which signifies a beautiful place under the trees. So, ‘May ara ko sa grove’ became Myara Grove.” he said.
Meanwhile, Mr. Allen Son Tan also announced exciting developments during the grand launch. Myara Grove will have its groundbreaking this June, to complete the model units and launch by the fourth quarter of 2023.
