MAKATI CITY – It’s simply a case of a strong organization partnering with another strong company to deliver exceptional services and a memorable customer experience.

On Friday, P.A. Properties-Hankyu One, Inc. (P.A.-Hankyu), a joint venture between Laguna-based property developer P.A. Alvarez Properties & Development Corp. (P.A. Properties) and Japanese real estate giant Hankyu Hanshin Properties Corp. (HHPC), signed an agreement with Colliers International Philippines for the management of Idesia Dasmariñas Phase 1, a PhP1.3B 11-hectare masterplanned community with residential and commercial components.

“The partnership with Colliers International Philippines is an exciting step towards redefining quality living by providing world-class property management services,” shared Romarico “Bing” T. Alvarez, P.A.-Hankyu One Inc. chairman. “As a global leader in real estate services, Colliers International Philippines is the perfect choice for this undertaking. By leveraging Colliers’ strength in property management, P.A.-Hankyu One remains committed to property success by creating communities where homes are built to the highest standards and families enjoy tasteful amenities designed to create a balanced life for its residents.” 

Idesia Dasmariñas is the flagship project of the joint venture and is the third overseas project of HHPC in the Southeast Asian region. The 37-hectare Idesia Dasmariñas township is a masterplanned community that will cater to urbanites; startup, growing or middle-income families; and those who seek to upgrade their total community living. Apart from affordable yet attractive dwellings, they will get to live in a property that preserves the original greenery of the site, plus the addition of more trees and flowering plants.

“Idesia Dasmariñas represents the essence of quality living and provides us a glimpse of next generation communities. It is a significant addition to the city of Dasmariñas and Colliers is honored to have been selected as the company’s partner for the property upkeep and village management of Idesia,” shared Engr. Jet Ilaga, Executive Director, Real Estate Management Services of Colliers International Philippines.  

On top of managing the relationship between residents and P.A.-Hankyu One, the Colliers team will handle all matters and concerns pertaining to the administration of Idesia Dasmariñas including the adoption of measures and recommendations for its improvement. It will also oversee the efficient functioning of Idesia utilities, maintenance and other areas relevant to the operations of the village.
