October 27, 2021 - Cebu Landmasters Inc. (CLI) and International Builders Corporation (IBC) held a groundbreaking ceremony to launch and celebrate the construction of Terranza Residences in Iloilo City — together with general contractor Vision Properties Development Corporation (VISION), Iloilo City Governor Arthur Defensor Jr., and Ms. Raisa Treñas-Chu representing Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
The long-awaited celebration was a fitting introduction of CLI and IBC’s premier residential development in an iconic address in downtown Iloilo City, which boasts of its panoramic views of the city and the river channels.
“The VisMin residential market continues to hold a lot of promise for us. More so in Iloilo because we have partnered with IBC, a successful local business known also for its philanthropy,” said CLI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jose Soberano III.
Terranza Residences is a partnership between CLI and IBC under a joint venture, GGTT Realty Corp. — and in VISION’s interview with GGTT Realty President and IBC Vice President for Leasing and Development Allan Ryan Tan, he said that the driving force behind the partnership with CLI was that they wanted to build a new landmark that Iloilo City can be proud of. To which GGTT Realty Director and CLI Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jose Franco Soberano affirms in his opening speech at the groundbreaking ceremony saying “aside from being able to support and blend in with the character of the area, this will really liven up the area — hopefully the first of many to really transform this beautiful downtown area.”
Soon to rise at the heart of Iloilo City, Terranza Residences is a 33-storey tower with 600 units to stand on 2,539 square meters (sqm) property — making it the first high-rise residential condominium in Iloilo City, and the tallest in Western Visayas.
Terranza Residences: Architect’s perspective
The premier residential development is envisioned to integrate itself in a lifestyle district that aims to foster heritage preservation through its timeless aesthetics as a legacy to a community rich in cultural appreciation.
