Alfredo Austria, managing director of DMCI Homes, said his company was expecting to generate revenue of
P8 billion from the projects.In Taguig City, DMCI Homes is building an 86-hectare property of mid-rise and high-rise condominiums
called the Township Central, which is close to major business and commercial centers of Makati and Ortigas.
It will also build an 8,000-sqm, two-story commercial hub of retail and service shops for the community.
Within the land area are the three-tower high-rise condominiums Cypress Towers and the Neo-Asian residential

including construction and design. It will be completed and turned over to buyers by June next year.

DMCI also offers high-rise condominiums in Mandaluyong City, the Tivoli Gardens Residences, which cater

said the company is confident that all units will be sold upon completion.
He said that five projects usually take about
two and a half years to build.
Austria said DMCI Homes continuously develops projects, whether or not there are buyers,
to bring down construction costs. - Judith Balea
