MANILA, Philippines - Our long history with the Spanish colonial lifestyle lives on at DMCI Homes’ latest development in the colorful city of Las Piñas. Maricielo Villas, a resort-inspired, medium-rise project, will exude the classic elegance of Spanish Mission Architecture through its thematic design – a fitting mold within a neighborhood that celebrates history and heritage.

Maricielo Villas will rise at the corner of Quirino Ave. and Casimiro Ave., located near the city’s National Cultural Treasure: the Parish Church of St. Joseph’s Bamboo Organ.

This 19th-century church organ, made almost entirely from bamboo, is dubbed as the only one of its kind in the world.  As such, the local city government has restored the immediate vicinity of the church, specifically known as the “Las Piñas Historical Corridor” which includes Quirino Ave., and required surrounding establishments to follow a structural theme as allusions to the Spanish influence.

Its appropriate design will make Maricielo Villas blend seamlessly with its community. The distinctive architecture, through the building façade, clubhouse and other common amenities, along with the landscaping and fixtures, all pay tribute to the Spanish Mission theme as a unique and refreshing design that stands out when compared to other residential projects in Las Piñas. Its resort living amenities set within the backdrop of a Spanish-themed environment will also set it apart from all other developments in the area.  Living in this modern condominium enclave will be reminiscent of summer vacations spent soaking up the sun and lazy afternoons spent catching up with friends over cool drinks.

The advantages however go beyond the aesthetics. Maricielo Villas was carefully planned with its target market in mind: young professionals and their families in the South seeking to upgrade to an updated way of city living. As an innovative condominium project by DMCI Homes, this development will present the best of both worlds, offering the spaciousness of traditional horizontal developments and the lock-up-and-go lifestyle of vertical projects.

Aside from start-up young families or married couples with children, the project also aims to attract full-nesters looking for a half-way home where they can enjoy the accessibility advantage of residing in this area. The project site is approximately 350 meters near the Alabang Zapote Road, and 1km near the C5 Extension Road.

Maricielo Villas can be reached via four major access routes: Quirino Avenue, Alabang Zapote Road, Manila-Cavite Coastal Road, South Luzon Expressway, and C5 Extension, making it accessible both for motorists and commuters.

DMCI Homes is the country’s premier triple A builder-developer that brings serviced, themed communities within reach of urban families who once had limited residential options, but still aspire to achieve a comfortable, enriching quality of life proximate to their place of work.
