When champions of sustainability come together

ARTHALAND is a real estate development company that talks about creating sustainable legacies. It takes pride in its ability to offer homes and properties that are comfortable, while featuring energy-saving features and water-efficient fixtures. To start off 2022 on the right sustainable foot, ARTHALAND announced that investing in a Lucima one-bedroom unit would come with a carefully curated selection of IKEA products that could turn your unit into a fully furnished one, in the blink of an eye.

To put it simply, it was an ARTHALAND upgrading of the ready for occupancy (RFO) concept we see so many developers offer. This was ARTHALAND doing it in its own way, and finding a company to work with who shares sustainability values that it considers an important part of their DNA–and this is IKEA.

Modern Tropical, Light and Airy, and Urban Dweller are the three IKEA showcase options available to the Lucima customer. Whether it is an eventual home owner or an investor, this is a welcome move that spells less stress, more convenience, and makes the now “fully furnished” unit much more attractive, and increases the potential of a sound return on investment (ROI).

Lucima is a 37-story residential development situated at the Cebu Business Park. It’s envisioned to be the country’s first quadruple-certified sustainable high-rise condominium. Carefully planned with health, safety, and security in mind, this sustainable certification will equate to a higher quality of living supported by lower electric and water costs, and improved indoor air quality. This is the environment-responsible future beckoning, and ARTHALAND is offering it today.

This commitment to sustainable living is more than just a slogan at ARTHALAND, where concrete measures, and design interventions and strategies, are embedded in its property offerings. These include passive cooling, heat-deflecting insulation, rainwater collection and recycling systems, energy-efficient lighting, and green spaces, just to name a few. It is about long-term dividends for the home-owner/ investor.

For IKEA Philippines, it was a support that was meant to be. “As with ARTHALAND, we are determined to fight climate change. We are paving the way for more sustainable homes for many, through our affordable product offerings. Our IKEA Design Team enjoyed working closely with ARTHALAND’s Technical Team in conceptualizing and bringing the designs to life,” said Georg Platzer, director, Ikano (Philippines) Inc.

From the above, it’s easy to see how this is a working arrangement made in “sustainable heaven.” It’s great to hear the latest and how this collaboration may soon extend and encompass exciting initiatives across the board–like ARTHALAND’s Sevina Park, situated in Biñan, Laguna, where limited-edition designer villas will soon rise in a LEED-certified, mixed-use, neighborhood community.
