CDC Holdings, Inc., one of the leading real estate developers in the country, recently completed the construction and turnover of units for its newest project – the Manila Rivercity Residences in Sta. Ana, Manila.

With all the property’s nine towers now completed, the company has fulfilled its commitment to help more families realize their dream of living in their own homes. Through the Manila Rivercity Residences, nestled along the historic and scenic Pasig River, CDC Holdings has once again built one of the most exciting and dynamic communities in the area.

“From an old, dilapidated warehouse, CDC Holdings transformed this site into one of the most attractive real estate investment you can find at this location, at this price and at this quality,” shared Elsie Chua, the company’s president and CEO. “The vision that I have of providing value for money homes at convenient location is a reality with Manila Rivercity Residences.”

The event was also highlighted with the turnover of the keys to homeowners signaling the community’s involvement in ensuring that the quality will be properly managed and maintained. “The challenge now is how to preserve and even enhance the units and amenities that have been turned over to the residents. CDC built the buildings, but it is up to each and every one of the homeowners to create a sense of community,” she added. 

Offering a relaxing retreat from the city’s hustle and bustle, the property is comprised of nine medium-rise buildings, named after the world’s most famous rivers: Nile, Dnieper, Blue Danube, Colorado, Euphrates, Rhine, Amazon, Kumagawa and Yangtze. Amid the urban chaos, the Manila Rivercity Residences serves as a sanctuary for families through its spacious studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units.

Chua says the success of this latest project validates CDC Holdings’ formula of providing quality homes at affordable prices at convenient location. Manila Rivercity Residences is ideally accessible, making a comfortable commute to or from the neighboring districts of Manila, Makati City or Mandaluyong City. What’s more, various commercial establishments, renowned schools and reputable medical facilities are within easy reach from CDC’s riverside condominium community.

Inside the gated community of Manila Rivercity Residences, residents will feel like they have been transported to a different world – one that spells relaxation and tranquility. Families can bond together and enjoy the property’s host of recreational facilities. 

Residents can spend some rest and recreation time at the landscaped boardwalk facing the Pasig River. Built with viewing decks that are made of eco-friendly material, gazebos and play areas, it is the perfect spot to unwind during the weekends. Families can also host barbeque and pool parties, as the Manila Rivercity Residences offers a well-appointed pool area with two fountains and falls, as well as barbeque pits. Residents can also wander freely and safely even in the evenings, as CDC is in the process of putting LED lights on common areas.

For CDC Holdings, its dedication to make its residents feel at home in every community that it builds is an ongoing commitment. As a result, the company is in the process of adding more features in the Manila Rivercity Residences, such as the installation of CCTV in the roof deck, elevators and main lobbies of all buildings, as well as the future implementation of garbage segregation. CDC Holdings will also launch soon the Kids Club, wherein resident kids can register to receive exclusive perks during their birthdays, participate in monthly activities such as Summer Carnival and craft sessions, and claim other exciting giveaways.

Kathleen Cruz has been a resident in Manila Rivercity Residences for a long time. Her family owns a one-bedroom unit in Nile Tower and has now added a two-bedroom unit in the new Yangtze Tower.

Among the residents who feel at home with CDC Holding’s property is 30-year old Kathleen Cruz, a branch head of a large retail store. Cruz, with her husband and four-year old daughter, are among the first occupants of the Manila Rivercity Residences when they bought a one-bedroom unit in the project’s Nile Tower. After making it their happy home for five years, they decided to purchase another unit in the same community – this time a two-bedroom in Yangtze Tower.

Accessibility and value for money were their main consideration for making Manila Rivercity Residences their home, according to Cruz. “We have seen a lot of developments in our line of work, and we can say that what CDC offered us is very competitive in terms of price,” Cruz says. What Cruz loves most about living in the Manila Rivercity Residences is the feeling of haven it gives to her family. “After a hard day at work, you just want to come home to a place that will be like your sanctuary, a place that will make you really feel at home,” Cruz shares. “It really feels like a community, and CDC is taking efforts to make us feel at home, even down to the little details.”

Just like the Cruz family, the Manila Rivercity Residences offers homeowners a smart way of living, with its excellent location, move-in ready units, and superb features and amenities.
