It’s good to know that our real estate developers care about our environment and place a lot of importance on sustainability and wildlife preservation. Ayala Land Premiere’s latest development, the high-end beach and country club
Anvaya Cove, has been recognized by New York-based Hospitality Design Magazine as one of the most sustainable real estate projects in the world. The coveted HD Awards program receives over 300 entries from luxury hotels, resorts, and spas, and Anvaya Cove, with its Asian tropical architecture, was chosen as a finalist in the Green/Sustainable project category.
According to the resort’s senior architect Manny Illana, the planning of Anvaya Cove was centered around sustainable environmental principles, with protecting the physical environment of the site as top priority. Roadways were designed to avoid mature trees, lighting fixtures were chosen so that the wildlife doesn’t get disoriented, and amenities were created so its guests and residents can enjoy the natural beauty of the place while promoting conservation. The resort was built in a forested foothill filled with mango and narra trees, but the developers left the natural groves of trees untouched, even though it could have brought them more lease opportunities. In fact, Ayala built a 10,000 sqm Mango Grove Park in order to protect the tall, 50-year old mango trees. They also took efforts to preserve an area where eagle owls and sea turtles nest, and an elevated pond in a secluded cove has been declared a sanctuary of local mallard ducks.
