ACM Landholdings holds groundbreaking of Salas Real

Salas Real, the newest community being developed by ACM Landholdings, was launched recently on its site at Quintin Salas, Brgy. Tacas, Jaro, Iloilo City. This is an affordable residential development that will begin with 567 homes that are inspired by Jaro’s grand and vibrant history.

Fusion of the Old and the New
At present, Salas Real has two Asian-inspired model units that are being shown to prospective buyers. The Angelina unit has a lot area of 120 sq. meters and floor area of 79 sq. meters; while the Bernardita unit’s lot area is 116 sq. meters with a floor area of 56 sq. meters.

Both units showcase a modern spin to the Bahay na Bato. Old Filipino-Spanish touches are subtly articulated in the clean lines and simple louvers, fretwork, columns and pedestals.

Venturing into the Visayas
ACM Landholdings is majority owned by the Philippine Transmarine Carriers, Inc. and has been in the property development industry for 25 years, building homes and communities mostly in Batangas and Cavite. Salas Real is its first foray into the Visayas.

Gerardo Borromeo, chairman of ACM Landholdings, said that there are two reasons why they chose Iloilo City as the location for their first project in the region. First is the progressive nature of the city and surrounding communities and, second, is the huge population of seafarers here.

“The choice of Iloilo as the site is not arbitrary. Based on research, many seafarers call Iloilo home. In fact, the province is one of the center for seafarers, and we see the opportunity for them to own a home here in Salas Real,” said Borromeo.

Keeping it Green
The development will also have a clubhouse, playground, basketball court and a greenhouse, the latter being a unique feature of all ACM Landholdings communities. The greenhouse provides families with an additional source of livelihood.

“In the other communities we built, we encourage homeowners to have a small space for a community garden where they grow vegetables, flowers and other plants. We also help them in semi-commercial quantity and the income from this will eventually be used in the maintenance of the subdivision as well as for their families’ needs,” said Carolina Osteria, managing director.

More than simply building houses, ACM Landholdings aims to help families build a life upon the foundation of a supportive and strong community, encouraging their holistic wellbeing as well as safeguarding their dreams for the future.
