The first developer to launch a residential condominium project in the Metro Sta. Rosa-Silang-Tagaytay growth area has launched the final project in its Stanford series within the growing South Forbes Golf City.

South Forbes Golf City is a worldclass, 500-hectare township; its boutique communities inspired by modern interpretations of classic architectural themes chosen from all over the globe. Take in modern Asian homes at Bali Mansions and Nirwana Bali, Thai abodes at Phuket Mansions, serene homes at Tokyo Mansions, modern castles at Chateaux de Paris, and classic beach residences at Miami.

Meanwhile, its residential condominiums offer the modern simplicity of Scandinavian design at Scandia Suites. Over at Golf View Terraces, residents wake up to views of the township’s award-winning, 18-hole South Forbes Golf Club.

As South Forbes continues to grow and evolve, Cathay Land Inc. President Jeffrey Ng said, “Our residents for Stanford 1 and 2 enjoy a relaxed lifestyle at South Forbes Golf City, whereas buyers have noted their property’s value appreciation over the past few years. Thus, now is the perfect time to launch Stanford Suites Tower 3.”

Stanford Suites 3 targets young families and retirees given its prime location near Westborough Town Centre, now hosting a Marketplace supermarket and a Coffee Bean shop. It is ideal for parents who have kids studying in nearby St. Scholastica’s College or Learning Links Academy. It is also near St. Benedict Parish.

With more commercial locators expected soon in this project, Stanford 3 will be ideal as well for empty nesters. The plans for Stanford Suites 3 will make residents appreciate the cool, Tagaytay-like weather year round.

The building will only rise six storeys, with pocket gardens ensuring constant wind flow throughout the building.

Young ones will enjoy the pool at the aquatrium after doing their homework at the study lounge. A commercial area at the ground floor gives added convenience.

Available are 331 studio and one-bedroom units. The pillar-less walls maximize the available space for all units. Plus, fiber connections ensure fast Internet connection year round for students doing their projects and retirees connecting with their relatives and friends.

“Our introductory price starting at 11.5 million for a studio unit, with a monthly amortization of about 123,000 for the first year, make Stanford Suites 3 a smart choice for parents and those looking forward to retirement in a relaxing, cool environment offered in South Forbes,” Ng concluded.
