A modern commercial hub will soon rise in the coastal municipality of Ternate, Cavite, designed to give domestic tourism a boost.
Puerto Azul Land Inc. recently announced the construction of Puerto Azul Gateway, an all-new “stopover” experience with 1,200 square meters of leasable space that will cater to visitors’ dining and commercial needs.
Once dubbed as “Asia’s Paradise Resort” and the “World’s Golfing Capital,” Puerto Azul is a vast and sprawling land bank located in the coastal area of Cavite that offers the option of mountain and beach attractions.
Just 90 minutes by car from Metro Manila, the project aims to complement the plans to re-develop Puerto Azul, which was popular as a golfing and exclusive tourist destination.
In the past, the Puerto Azul Golf & Country Club hosted some of the most high-profile golf tournaments—from the Philippine Open to the celebrity-studded Goma Cup of actor Richard Gomez.
In April, Bloomberry Resorts Corp. entered into a purchase agreement with Boulevard Holdings Inc., Puerto Azul Land Inc., Ternate Development Corp., and Monte Sol Development Corp. The plan is to develop some 279 hectares of land into an integrated resort complex, complete with a world-class casino, a luxury hotel, a new golf course, and other mixed-use developments.
“We’re very excited to launch the Gateway project. This heralds a new age for Puerto Azul Land Inc.,” said Samantha Panlilio, Chief Operations Officer of Puerto Azul Land Inc.
“Rest assured our team is mindful of the environmental and social impact of the said construction project. That said, we shall adhere towards the highest standards of sustainability practices by collaborating with the local government officials and environmental consultants to ensure conservation and pro-green efforts are met. It is our commitment to deliver a most positive impact to the community,” she added.
Puerto Azul Gateway is expected to be completed by 2025.
