Despite decades of living overseas, many Filipinos still choose to grow old in their native land for reasons that vary from economic to just purely sentimental.
For 78-year-old Sofia Murphy who had lived in Perth, Australia for 40 years, coming home to her native city of Davao for good in 2014 meant a fresh start after her husband passed away due to heart attack.
“After my husband died a few years ago, I wanted a new environment, a fresh start,” Murphy shared in an interview.
Determined to live a worry-free life, she sold their house in a subdivision in Maa and decided to embrace the convenience of condominium-living in DMCI Homes’ three-hectare Verdon Parc development.
“I lived before in a subdivision and I always pass by this place when I go shopping. I really like the area. It’s very close to (commercial) establishments, to the mall, and bus terminals. I think, it is (the) center of the city,” she said.
Located along Ecoland Drive corner Peacock Street in Davao City, Verdon Parc offers excellent proximity to various commercial establishments including malls and markets as well as educational institutions, banks, places of worship, medical service providers and government agencies.
Even though Verdon Parc was not her original choice, Murphy said she is convinced that she made the right decision in picking the DMCI Homes’ leisure-inspired development.
“The first condo that I have looked at, it’s really the kind of condo that I like. I actually decided to buy that one but when I saw Verdon Parc and inquired, I realized that it’s much better here. My original choice was not just more expensive compared here, it also does not have a balcony unlike here in Verdon Parc,” Murphy pointed out.
Murphy moved into her two-bedroom unit early this year and was immediately smitten by the friendly residents and Property Management Office staff at Verdon Parc.
“Everybody’s so friendly. The guards and especially the staff,” she said.
The exclusivity of the development and the presence of 24/7 roving guards and modern security measures make her stay even more enjoyable according to Murphy.
“When I go on travel, I know that my stuff is secured. We also had security in our subdivision before but it is much better when you live in a condo. At my age, I can sleep soundly at night because I know that I’m safe here,” she said.
“It’s like living in a resort”
Consistent with its reputation as the best provider of residential communities designed to create quality lifestyle, DMCI Homes intended Verdon Parc to complement the King City of the South’s abundant and pristine natural resources to create a leisurely atmosphere for Davaoeños.
Fitness facilities, swimming pools, entertainment and game rooms, play areas and leisure zones, are available to satisfy every whim.
Murphy, with all the first-class features of her “retirement home”, could not help but get excited over the possibilities brought by a new life at Verdon Parc.
“It’s like having a holiday every day. It’s like living in a resort,” Murphy beamed.

Residents can also unwind at the pool complex that includes a kiddie and lap pool, gazebo, open lawn picnic area, play area, court roof garden, and basketball court.
More Breathing Space
With the well-being of residents always an utmost concern of DMCI Homes, the esteemed developer incorporated its proprietary Lumiventt Design Technology to allow ambient light and fresh air to permeate the towers as well as all unit spaces within high-rise structures.
This pioneering technology from DMCI Homes translates to lesser electrical consumption for residents and at the same time prevent “sick building syndrome” with more breathing spaces.
The unobstructed view of the mountains of Antipolo, the sun rising in the east, and the spectacle of city lights at night, on the other hand, provide residents an added treat amid the bustle of urban life.
Hassle-free condo living
Meanwhile, to give residents a sense of security, Infina Towers will have a full back up power and a fire alarm system with automatic fire sprinkler and suppression system for all units and common areas.
CCTV provisions will also be installed in strategic locations of common areas around the compound surrounded by electrified perimeter fence and 24/7 roving guards.
To ensure a hassle-free condo living, 10 high-speed elevators per tower will be made available and will also house a convenience store, laundry station and a water station.
Five levels of basement parking for both towers were also included in the project design to accommodate a total of 1,651 parking slots.
The one-bedroom units of 27.50 to 36 square meter floor area are great for rental investments at a price range of P2.46 million to P3.18 million.
On the other hand, two-bedroom units range from P3.89 million to P4.42 million. With a floor area of 48.50 to 53 square meters, the units are perfect for small to medium sized families. Spacious three-bedroom units of 89 square meter floor area, meanwhile, range from P6.12 million to P6.39 million.
The turnover date for the North Tower which has 40 levels of residential units is on Sept. 2021.

The premier residential hub of Makati City has constantly evolved with the increasingly refined and cosmopolitan palate of its locales. Combining this with the authentic resort lifestyle that it is known for, the Philippines’ first Quadruple A property builder DMCI Homes brings a new perspective on elegant city living with Brio Tower – its first high-rise community in Makati City.
“The early completion of Brio Tower marks another milestone in the company’s history and is a testament to DMCI Homes’ competence to deliver projects that offer world-class craftsmanship.

With its strategic location, having the luxury of time and convenience is an inherent part of living at Brio Tower. The 5,760-square meter rising residential landmark is situated at Barangay Guadalupe Viejo in Makati City. Its location along the border of EDSA further makes it a place where sought-after venues for work, play, and leisure converge.
The MRT Guadalupe Station and other major transportation hubs are just minutes away, making it easier to travel in and around Makati as well as going to other CBDs like Ortigas and Bonifacio Global City. Major establishments and areas of interest are neighbours to the development as well, including schools, hospitals, and various commercial and business centers.
The Brio Tower’s Asian Contemporary design theme reveals a cozy and refined atmosphere that pervades throughout the building – from the grand lobby to the units and resort-type amenities.
Nestled amidst expansive open spaces and abundant greeneries, the ground amenity area inspires relaxation, comfort, and encourages a healthy lifestyle for unit owners. Its mix of amenities include the lap pool, kiddie pool, the lounge area, linear park, children’s playground, audio-visual room, gazebo and cabana, a game room, and a fitness gym. The Sky Deck and Sky Lounge at the top floor give residents a more peaceful breathing space while they enjoy panoramic and scenic views of the city.
Just like all its residential developments, Brio Tower is designed with DMCI Homes’ architectural innovation called Lumiventt technology. The vertical enclave will feature a combination of single-loaded corridors, three-storey high openings called Sky Patios, and breezeways located on the left and right wing of every floor to allow natural light and airflow into every unit.
Getting everyday necessities and fulfilling simple tasks is also a breeze at Brio Tower, as it comes complete with a convenience store, snack bar, water station, and a laundry station. For added convenience and peace-of-mind for residents, there will be an efficient property management office to attend to their needs and concerns, as well as provisions for a standby electric generator, roving security, perimeter fence and CCTV cameras which are located at strategic places within the development.
