Revolution Precrafted has entered into a formal agreement with Central Country Estate, Inc. (CCEI) for the construction and delivery of $345 million worth of pre-crafted homes and retail stores in a 70-hectare prime development in Lakeshore, Pampanga.
The project, named “Revolution Flavorscapes at Lakeshore” is the world’s first livable food park which would feature pop-up stores offering cuisines from 200 countries.
The development boasts of groundbreaking amenities including a Museum of Ice Cream, Museum of Candy, A Chocolate Gallery and a Microbrewery with surrounding beer garden.
There will also be a floating restaurant, floating cinema and amphitheater situated at the banks of Lakeshore’s 12-hectare man-made lake.
Revolution Precrafted Founder and CEO Robbie Antonio said
“we will supply $115.4 million to build more than 7,100 carefully curated prefabricated homes that will soon rise on a lusH space in The Lakeshore in Mexico, Pampanga, situated at a mere stone’s throw away from an existing manmade lake.”
Antonio revealed that Revolution Precrafted expects more than $345 million in revenues from the sale of the precrafted homes and popup retail stores, to be located in strategic areas around the development, in its first phase.
He said Revolution Flavorscapes is an homage to Pampanga, which maintains its reputation as the food capital of the Philippines.
For his part, CCEI Managing Director Brian John Mangio said the master planned community will give residents the chance to experience a lakeside lifestyle, complete with a wide array of industry leading amenities.
“We are building a FamiLeisure hub, a community swimming pool, a drive-by cinema, muse-ums, spas, and sports center that will promote an active life-style,” Mangio said.
Revolution Precrafted will build and supply 48 square meter townhouses called Revolution Alcove priced at an introductory price of R1.8 million; 60 square meter single attached units called Revolution Cocoon priced at R2.16 million; and 72 square meter origin squared units called Revolution Nest priced at R2.52 million. Meanwhile, the retail pop stores will be sold R6.2 million each. The development of the property is expected to start in 2018 and will be completed in phases. Development of the master planned community and the construction of the houses is expected to be completed over three years.
